“Hidden city ticketing” could help you save a ton on your flights, but it could be a little risky. By booking a flight and getting off at the layover – as opposed to the ticketed destination – you could save big money. Airlines could penalize fliers who use this method, though, so it’s important to know the right way to do it. “Hidden city ticketing” could be a game changer for passengers looking to save big on their next flight, if they know how to do it right. Scott Keyes, CEO and cofounder of Scott’s Cheap Flights, told Business Insider about how passengers could use hidden city ticketing to get the best deals on airfare. To explain the concept, Keyes used the hypothetical example of a passenger in Chicago looking to travel to New York. He said that people in Chicago could find flights that have a layover in New York. In this particular case, they could buy a ticket … [Read more...] about Airlines hate ‘hidden city ticketing,’ but it’s still one of the best ways to save a ton on your flights — if you know how to do it

The installation process was trouble-free, but because I started from scratch, I had quite a bit to add and tweak after the OS itself was installed. To help others who are planning to install the newest version of Ubuntu, here’s what my to-do list looked like: 1) Check for updates and install them. The ISO image that you download form the Ubuntu website may not contain important updates. To check and download updates, find Software Updater from the Unity Dash (Super or Windows key and type “up”) and click on the icon. 2) Install proprietary drivers for the best graphics performance. To do this, open Software & Updates from the Dash, click the “Additional Drivers” tab and choose the appropriate driver to use. A caveat for Radeon users: Ubuntu 16.04 does not support the old AMD Catalyst driver (fglrx), so you might want to give this Ubuntu release a pass for now. 3) Install Restricted Extras. This will give you the codecs needed to play most audio and … [Read more...] about Ubuntu 16.04 to-do list
On 1 October, Microsoft gave the first look at its Windows 10 OS, a major release that will span all hardware from PCs to phones while trying to address the issues that have plagued Windows 8 Microsoft unveiled Windows 10, the long-awaited followup to Windows 8 Tuesday. The latest version of Windows walks back some of the more jarring changes of Windows 8, including the return of the Start menu and improvements to how apps are displayed, while also adding multitasking enhancements that will appeal to those who use touchscreen devices as well as PCs. But while Windows 10 will be a welcome change to those users who were turned off by the "mobile first" approach of Windows 8, the latest version of Windows hardly feels like a step backward. With Windows 10, Microsoft has managed to preserve some of Windows 8's Metro touches while also adding new multitasking features and other usability enhancements likely to bring enterprise and desktop power users back to the Windows fold. 1. To start … [Read more...] about Microsoft’s Latest OS Windows 10 Is Out. Wait, What Happened To The 9th OS?
Design: Material Design Vs Flat Design For Apple the hard work was done last year with iOS 7. Out went Steve Jobs’ beloved skeuomorphism and in came minimalist flat design. It wasn’t met with universal praise and it certainly became more cartoonish, but iOS 7 was clean, modern and established Apple’s new design language. iOS 8 builds on this good work adding more consistency and refining iconography, but it also has some smart design tweaks with regards to notifications, widgets, multi-tasking and keyboard interaction. Google on the other hand decided to stick with a material design that portrays more physicality than superficiality. Android Lollipop 5.0 comes with physical rules on how buttons should react when pressed and how different UI layers should interact as well as how animations are triggered. Google believes this attributes will go a long way in allowing users understand whatever will be happening on the background. The main difference in this case is that … [Read more...] about iOS 8 Vs Android 5.0: Which OS Is The King?
Access the Menus in Any Program You may know that you can press Ctrl+S to save a file, or Alt+Enter to go full screen (depending on the app). But if you don't know the keyboard shortcut for the menu item you want—or if there isn't one—you can still access the File, Edit, and other menus with the keyboard. On Windows, just press Alt+that menu's underlined letter (for example, Alt+F for File), then arrow down to the option you want. On OS X, just press Ctrl+F2 to head to the menu bar, then start typing the name of the menu item you want. Browse the Internet Your browser has more built-in shortcuts than you can shake a stick at, and you'd be surprised how much browsing you can get done without that mouse. For example Ctrl+L takes you to the address bar to type in URLs or search terms. Backspace and Shift+Backspace move you back and forward a page. Ctrl+F finds text on a page, while Ctrl+Enter opens a link in a new tab. Alt + F or Alt + E , to open the wrench menu and Shift+ … [Read more...] about Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do On A PC Without Ever Touching The Mouse
Having a home that accurately reflects your interests is well worth the investment. That’s why many of those who find financial success end up using their newfound wealth to spruce up their homes. But what do these homes actually look like? Interior designer Noa Santos has worked with plenty of entrepreneurs through Homepolish, the design startup he cofounded in 2013. Earlier this year, he helped Sweetgreen cofounders Jon Neman and Nathaniel Ru create their dream loft, and he’s also worked with Marissa Vosper of Negative Underwear and Danielle and Jodie Snyder of Dannijo. Santos shared some of the biggest trends he’s seeing in the homes of newly rich people these days. In general, many successful entrepreneurs are looking to finally upgrade some of the more basic pieces they already own. Buying a nice sofa is one great example of that. “Even small upgrades like going from foam to down is something people wait to do,” Santos … [Read more...] about What the newly rich do with their homes after they make it big, according to a top interior designer
The war of words between Apple and the FBI continues to heat up ahead of next Tuesday’s hearing over whether Apple should help extract data from San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook’s government-issued iPhone. This time, the words are coming directly from Apple CEO Tim Cook, and he’s warning about a not-too-implausible dystopic future in which the government could force tech companies to build software that spies on their users. From an interview with Time magazine:And the way that we simply see this is, All Writs Act can be used to force us to do something would make millions of people vulnerable, then you can begin to ask yourself, if that can happen, what else can happen? In the next senate you might say, well, maybe it should be a surveillance OS done. Maybe law enforcement would like the ability to turn on the camera on your Mac. This isn’t the first time Cook has used extreme language to describe the standoff between the most valuable … [Read more...] about Even CEO Tim Cook is suggesting Apple could be forced to build a ‘surveillance OS’
Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Google is merging its Chrome OS operating system – which is based on the Chrome browser and used on personal computers (mostly laptops) – with Android, its market-leading operating system for smartphones and tablets. The move has been expected for some time, but Chrome OS fans quickly took to social media to defend the Chromebook laptops, which are cheap, quick to start up, and perfectly fine if all you need is browser apps. A Google exec insisted that Chrome will live on in some form. But if Google does kill Chrome OS, this chart from Statista suggests it wouldn’t be widely mourned. Chromebooks have never been a significant part of the computing market. Last year, according to Gartner, about 546 million PCs and tablets shipped. Most of the PCs run Microsoft’s Windows, a few run Apple’s Mac OS X, and most of the tablets run Google’s Android or Apple’s iOS. Chromebooks … [Read more...] about If Google kills Chrome OS, there won’t be many mourners
Apple rolled out its newest Mac operating system this week, El Capitan. The new OS includes some interesting and fun new features that any computer user will like such as an exploding cursor. (When you jiggle the mouse, it blows up to a ginormous size.) But OS X also includes a few special goodies for business users and their IT departments, says Tad Johnson, marketing manager for JAMF Software, a company that makes software to help enterprises manage fleets of Macs and iOS devices. There are three new features that business Mac users will especially like: 1. An updated Mail App. The old included Mail app wasn’t particularly wonderful, but the new-and-improved Mail “will help users get through the inbox more quickly,” Johnson says. It’s been set up to work more like the new iOS 9’s Mail app, supporting the same gestures, for instance. 2. An updated Notes app. In this release, Apple gave its Notes app a major overhaul. Johnson says … [Read more...] about 5 reasons business users will love the Mac’s newest OS, El Capitan
Even as Blue Jays fans have undergone an energizing horsehide metamorphosis this winter, questions continue to crop up regarding the state of the bullpen. The creeping insecurity infecting Blue Jay Nation is due to a perception that the team lacks a classic, lights-out closer, a man who can reliably shut down games for the newly rebuilt starting five — R.A. Dickey, Brandon Morrow, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson and Ricky Romero. The Jays got by in 2012, relying on a non-classic closer, right-hander Casey Janssen, in a season that had no playoff pressure after the July trade deadline. Janssen is a bulldog who goes right after hitters, aggressively pounding the strike zone, keeping himself in pitcher’s counts where he can continue to outguess and outthink opposing hitters in stressful ninth-inning situations. But that’s not what World Series contenders are perceived to need. Champions require Mariano Rivera types, don’t they? That seems to be the biggest concern of … [Read more...] about Blue Jays’ bullpen deep enough but Sergio Santos remains the key: Griffin
