Christmas is one of the busiest travel times of the year. Unfortunately, you'll probably be picking someone up at the airport at some point. Be prepared to deal with huge crowds.
Even if your only stop is to pick friends up at curbside, airports are stressful. You may have to circle while waiting for their plane to land or luggage to be found. Perhaps you'll have to pay to sit in a parking structure. If the flight is delayed, things get even worse.
This year, make it easier on yourself and visit FlightAware. It offers live flight tracking for all major carriers. There is also tracking for some smaller air services.
You can quickly see if your visitor's flight is on schedule. Check flights by number or, if you forgot the number, you can view all flights by airport.
If you're like me, you use your smartphone for recording photos and videos and storing other important information. But did you realize that all that precious data is just a second away from disaster?
All you have to do is drop your gadget or leave it unattended when a thief walks by. All your data will be gone, and possibly in the hands of a criminal.
Fortunately, my advertiser Carbonite has updated its app with great new protective features.
If you have a Carbonite subscription, the app still backs up your iOS or Android gadget's photos and video to Carbonite's secure servers. Plus, you can browse your computer's backed up files on the go.
For Android users, the app can remotely locate a lost or stolen phone, make a loud noise, lock the gadget, capture a photo with the gadget's camera or wipe all your personal data. And these features don't even require a Carbonite subscription!
Cost: Free; Backup features require a Carbonite subscription.
