Why Stay Somewhere Boring

They are well priced, fun – with better food and service – and are in fascinating locations. Try Art Series Hotels – The Cullen or the Blackman – when visiting Melbourne.

Cuddle Class….

I love this idea from Air New Zealand… really clever… they are easily the best airline out there…

The national carrier yesterday unveiled the interiors for its new Boeing 777-300 aircraft, which includes the Skycouch, the first economy seating that allows the traveller to lie flat, or a couple to curl up… The arm rests between the three seats of the Skycouch fully retract and flaps come up to meet the seats in front to create a platform … The new economy seats come with small added comforts, such as a pillow that fits over the winged head rest, a port for your iPod, and a larger entertainment monitor.

Kindle Zen…

I’m a big Kindle fan. But here is the rub. I hope that unlike Windows, my iTouch, my Dell XPS One … Unlike the thinking here… I hope that Amazon does absolutely nothing to the Kindle.

Its pure simplicity and lack of add-ons, apps or other geek bling enables us to embrace the simplicity of reading a great book, uninterrupted. And that is what is to love about it. The minimum of features delivering the maximum pleasure.

Ok – there are a couple of things… hire a great designer and make it prettier… get better Nav buttons… improve the speed of page transitions… do give us page numbers… But these are all basic things.

There is so much to love about the uninterupted Kindle experience!
