WWDC and

Category : Commentary/expedia.txt

I'm going to WWDC after all.

"Dear Customer,

Reservation has been confirmed by Grosvenor Suites. Your credit card has been charged in full..."

I'm still waiting for the air-tickets to be confirmed by my local travel agency. shows just why traditional intermediaries like travel agencies may go the way of the dinosaurs. I couldn't book the air tickets through Expedia, though, otherwise everything would have been all set by now. And at far lower prices.

"Please allow at least 48 hours for us to send your reservation to the hotel since they would still have to manually input your information into their system."

Well, that solves another riddle. I was wondering how the hotel's reservation system would interface with the portal's system - it's done manually. Isn't there a better way? I'll have a chance to find out, soon.
