Southwest Teams Up With Apple for InAirtainment

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 06:00 AM

"Southwest Airlines has teamed up with Apple to offer music and video entertainment options for its customers through its new InAirtainment Web site. The site features iTunes Store content, and even offers 20 free songs from Southwest says are 'artists about to fly.'"

You can access the site via Southwest Airlines webpage using any connection. I'm in agreement with the article though, in that Southwest would probably like you to use their WiFi for the revenue. They will have music, video and movies as well as some deals that only Southwest customers will be able to take advantage of, and the service is live now.

Apple's New Ad, Family Travel

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 01:00 PM

"If you've been watching TV over the last few days (and who hasn't, with that USA / Canada hockey game and the tsunami coverage), you may have seen the latest in the series of iPhone ads."

So mom obviously is happy since she says "It's unbelievable how much better family trips have gotten..." She uses her Southwest Airlines App, then slides over to her Gate Guru app and to top it off she checks out her lights at home with the Schlage app. Speaking of Schlage, their LiNK system does a lot more than turning on and off lights. You can also lock and unlock doors, live-stream footage and control your thermostat to name just a few. I'm in the process of remodeling our kitchen and living room, and I'm tempted to buy one of the locks to give it a try. I'll let you know how that goes. I'm not exactly what you would call a "handyman" when it comes to home repair but I think Schlage makes it pretty simple.

Wi-Fi Coming Soon to Southwest Airlines

"Internet connectivity is set to join pretzels and orange juice as one of the options on airlines as flight attendants roll their cart down the aisle."

The pretzels and OJ will be free, but I doubt the Wi-Fi will be for very long. I'd bet it will be free during the testing phase, but the airlines will eventually charge for it. Jet Blue, Virgin Airlines and Southwest are the only airlines planning on testing Wi-Fi on their airplanes, which will start near the end of the year. I don't fly that much any more, and when I do most of my flights are short ones, 2 or 3 hours at the most. Even on the short flights though, it would be nice to have this option. We'll see how they set up the pricing structure, if it is anything like they have done with the inflight phone calls, you can bet I'll be passing on the Wi-Fi! Besides, I can always just watch a movie.
