Where did the earth come from? - Big Bang Video

Friday, May 13th, 2011

We’ve been fortunate to travel this great world of ours. And I think we rarely give it enough thought on when it was created, how and why. Now we’re not here to debate the evolution vs. creationism. We’re just here to show you cool videos!

What do you think of the graffiti representation of BLU’s Big Bang video?

The Future of Travel

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

We’re all still waiting for commercial jet packs, flying cars and regular trips to the moon but what does the future of travel really have in store for us? The folks at Google UK put together their thoughts in the following short video.

It looks like a lot of customization, sharing and use of mobile check-ins are in store. We would argue that all of these things are super important today. That’s why we’re working to add more personalized suggestions for your trips and tailored offers to save you money while traveling. I can only hope that we won’t even need mobile phones to get to the moon. Mobile chips embedded in our skin, maybe?

The future starts now. So start sharing your trips on gtrot today!

Welcome to Heathrow, The Musical

Friday, November 12th, 2010

Anyone that’s ever flown into an airport, or has watched the movie ‘Love Actually‘, knows that the Arrivals area of the airport is a place for reunions, private car service pick-ups and the occasional musical performance… wait what?

Okay, maybe a musical performance is not something you regularly see in an airport but that’s changed for these lucky traveler’s arriving at Heathrow Terminal 5. Check out the T-Mobile sponsored promotion below.
