There’s A Company In Italy Called “Steve Jobs” And Apple Isn’t Too Pleased About It

In 2012, Italian brothers, Vincenzo and Giacomo Barbato, seized a golden opportunity to name their company “Steve Jobs” when they realized Apple never got around to trademarking his name. They pair had spent years designing products for other companies, so when it came time to start their own, they new the name would be perfect for their brand. As could be expected, Apple immediately sought legal action against them. They filed a motion with the European Union Intellectual Property Office against the brothers, but now it seems the tech empire has lost to them. Source 1 Apple’s downfall came in choosing to specifically go after the small company’s logo of a letter “J” with something resembling a bite taken out of it and a leaf adorning the top of it rather than its name. While the logo does...

We Just Found Your Next Desired Vacation Destination

Vacationers are always looking for that next amazing getaway experience, and we think we’ve found it — The Resort at Paws Up. Nestled within Montana’s gorgeous Blackfoot Valley, the resort adopts a clear rustic design with a hint of modernity, called “glamping” (glamour camping). But the great news is that people who have stayed there are reporting that it appeals to people of any generation — from the grandparents to the true cowpokes at heart. Source 1 The resort is set on 37,000 acres, so there’s space aplenty for privacy and for some backwoods exploring. For those who like the feel of camping without the tedious exercise of having to blow up air mattresses, pitch tents, and scrape the sides of cans of baked beans, then this is the resort that has everything figured out to perfection.

Peninsula Beijing is China’s Most Luxurious All-Suite Hotel

Gone are the days of hotel rooms with limited storage and closet space. The Peninsula Beijing is the luxury hotel that proves sizes does matter. The five-star hotel is the only one in Beijing with only suites. What began as 525 rooms have now been transformed into 230 breath-taking suites, all at least 700 square feet each. Source 1 The year-long renovation pulled design inspiration from the interior of private yachts and combined it with the traditional and modern styles found throughout the Chinese culture. If the standard suite comes with a separate living room, and arrangement of fresh flowers, his-and-hers sinks, and a dressing room complete with nail dryer, you can only imagine what the premium suites hold. Source 1 Variety is common among the premium suites. The 769 square-foot offe...

Forget Big Ben — These Hot Tub Boats Are What You Want To Do In London

As one of the most tourist-heavy cities in the world, London has all sorts of amenities and sights to see, but there’s one thing to do there that even seasoned tourists definitely haven’t yet done. A blissful boat ride down scenic waterways and lounging in hot tubs are both great ways to relax, but what if you could do both at the same time? Well now you can! HotTugs are officially available to rent now. Up to seven people can all lounge within the boat, with the water reaching up to 100 degrees. Now you can cruise down the city’s Regent’s Canal soaking in the sights….and soaking in the water. Champagne is also included with each boat ride. Source 1 Don’t worry about having to paddle, either, as each boat is fitted with a motor that leaves you with nothing to do except sip and sightsee. Ea...

One of Disneyland’s Best Annual Passes Is Discontinued

If you frequent Disneyland, this might put a downer on your holiday plans. Disneyland Resort has indefinitely discontinued their Disney Southern California Annual Passport. Rather than offer the $469 park admission pass, guests are encouraged to spend $339 on the Select Annual Passport. The less expensive locals-only pass will probably ruffle more than a couple of feathers, unfortunately. The pass is limited to 170 days of admission to the Disneyland Resort and not able to be used on holidays, through the summer or on weekends. Guests looking to hit Disneyland on a weekend will have to shell out $619 for the Disney Deluxe Passport. As of now, South California residents with the discontinued pass can renew, but no new passes will be sold. Source 1 This isn’t the first time the pass has been...

This Hotel is Every Book Lover’s Dream

What could be better than a historic vacation in beautiful Portugal? Your hotel is in a medieval village and every wall being stacked with books. The Literary Man Hotel in Obidos, Portugal opened its doors in October of 2016 and already currently holds over 45,000 books. The goal is to have 100,000 books throughout the entirety of the building. The hotel, which doubles as a bookstore, sits among artisan shops in the 700-year-old town just northwest of Lisbon. The tiny town is home to 3,000 people so as the sunsets and the day-visitors leave, you’re left with the locals and an intimate experience. Source 1 Located just off of the main road, Literary Man is a great meeting spot for people crowding the village in the day to shop and drink. The hotel’s cocktail lounge and restaurant are more l...

Dangerous Things Everyone Does on Airplanes

Not many people find planes to be a frightening way to travel. They offer an easy way to cover a long distance in a quick amount of time; however, what you do on those flights can be dangerous. We’re all guilty of putting ourselves and others in danger from time to time on a flight, whether we know it or not. Sitting the entire flightIt always seems like a good idea to stay seated, especially if you’re not on the aisle seat. Unfortunately, low cabin pressure can slow up circulation and cause you to develop blood clots which can travel throughout your body. Consider changing leg positions regularly if you cannot get up. Eating food that’s touched the tray tableThe five-second, three-second or one-second rule don’t apply here. The tray table is where dirty diapers have been changed and used ...

Hotels Are Solving Annoying Inconveniences

Hotel stays can either make your vacation magical or make you question why you even chose the hotel. The smallest things can ruin your stay like the housekeeper on your floor blasting their music while they clean across the hall. Luckily for travelers, hotel properties all over have heard the strange complaints and have begun to make changes. Tiny ClosetsEven on a short vacation, the six hangers provided aren’t doing anyone any favors and of course, after ordering up more, your clothes are now wrinkled form shoving them into the slit in the wall that they call a closet. At Moxie Times Square, the storage space is unreal. Guests can find hidden storage in the pull out drawers underneath the bed. The wooden wall pegs give added hanging space. There is even a fold up table and collapsible lea...

The Reason Behind Why Pilots and Co-pilots Have To Eat Completely Different Meals During Flights

Pilots and co-pilots have a strict set of rules they must adhere to for the safety of themselves and all their passengers. One in particular is that they are not allowed to eat the same meal during flights. This is to ensure that one of them will be able to take over the aircraft if the other falls ill due to an unknown allergy, food poisoning, etc. While this is not something that’s mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration, most airlines enforce this rule, though it may vary slightly, for all of their pilots. There’s a perk to being the pilot though. Typically, the pilot is given a first class meal, while the co-pilot receives one from business class. Source 1 Thankfully, there haven’t been many cases of on-board food poisoning recorded, most likely due to the enforcement of this r...
