Optimize your trips

This week, I observed a weird tendency (random concentration?) on the information channels I check on the Internet: I saw an increasing number of news about ways to optimize parts of your trips and travels.

  • Trippish: Take weather into account to plan your trips.
  • Farecast: Choose the best time to buy an airplane ticket in order to get it at the best possible price (using statistical methods, and with a refund-the-difference commitment)
  • BizMile: Compute your business miles (for IRS appreciation and with valid IRS report output)

Everybody is moving around more than ever, or is it merely that you are all thinking about your next vacations?
