The introduction of Apple’s Passbook application has created waves throughout the travel industry. A highly touted feature in the iOS 6 keynote speech, Passbook is, quite simply, poised to change the way airlines and passengers interact.
Google Now is a new feature in the Android platform, and was introduced in Android 4.0. Google Now goes beyond the capabilities of Passbook, which simply aggregates data and information from existing applications on a user’s smart phone.
Google Now is able to gather information such as itineraries from email accounts, flight statuses, and location information, all without any interaction from the user. The information is displayed in the notification bar, and can be fully accessed by opening the application.
From ''The Harvey Girls'' (1946) No copyright infrengment intended. The real story of the Fred Harvey and the Harvey Girls at Harvey houses is a fascinating piece of Americana. I highly recommend the charming musical with Judy Garland, as well as books and articles about the subject. The book by Lesley Poling-Kempes was excellent. Barnes & Noble has another by Juddi Morris, which I've not read yet.

Giuseppe Mauriello: Hopflow is web and iOS social content discovery app which seeks to connect users with a stream of content based on their personal interests. It is similar to other services like Prismatic and Trapit.
From reviewed article by The Next Web:
"Hopflow lets users Discover and share content through following specific topics rather than individual sources, and based on these interests, a personalized flow of stories from around the Web is reeled in.
You’ll need to sign up with your Twitter or Facebook credentials.
Hopflow scanned my Twitter history and, quite accurately, told me all the subjects I am indeed interested in.
You can, of course, manually select and deselect options as you see fit, and once you click ‘Done’, you’ll have a long stream of news stories based around your topics of interest. It’s like Twitter, except you follow topics rather than accounts, and this comparison is given further credence with the ‘Rehop’ feature which lets you share your news with others.
“The social Web is full of content platforms that force people to manually follow and filter through sources and information,” says Erez Pilosof, CEO and Founder of Hopflow. ” In this contextual age, people want tools that are simple and provide targeted information. We believe that discovering and sharing stories about the things that interest you shouldn’t be tedious and time consuming but rather fun and easy. Hopflow eliminates unwanted noise and allows users to sit back and enjoy a beautiful image-based ‘flow’ of relevant content outside of their current social networks.”
