HappyFlier Goes Mobile!

Do you use a smartphone to surf the Web?

A few years ago no one did. Now, with the incredible growth of the smartphone category (led by Apple’s iPhone, several phones from BlackBerry, new Droids from Google, and the Palm Pre and Pre Plus) more and more people are using their phones as their web browser. I am in that group, checking mail and the news on my phone several times a day from work.

Most websites, mine included, are designed to look good on a computer screen, but may not work very well on a phone’s much smaller screen. Thanks to a wonderful plug-in, readers of my blog will no longer need to be concerned with that.

The new feature automatically converts the site so that it will look good and format correctly on your phone’s browser.  You don’t have to go to a new URL, it is all automatic.

So give it a try, see how HappyFlier looks on your phone. I think you’ll like what you see. I know I do! Comments? You can reach me at Bob@happyflier.com.

This is What They Were Selling

Several people have asked about my last post, trying to figure out what they were selling in that video.

The answer is: airline tickets!

At the end of the video is a link to http://www.grabaseat.co.nz. That link takes you to the web site of Air New Zealand, specifically their special deals page.

There is nothing on the site that has any connection to the video, and the video had no connection to Air New Zealand. No connection that is, other than the fact that we are now talking about them and visiting their site.

And that, my friends, is a successful viral video. And now you know what they were selling.
