Travel Planner Site

This site, NileGuide looks like it might be cool if they can get the data into that they need. I know it's still in Beta, but there is no way to plan a trip for a destination that isn't already in the site. and I couldn't find any way to add destinations or places to visit. If they could partner with a review site like Yelp this would be AWESOME!

Talking First Aid Kits



These are kind pricey at $130, but pretty awesome, organized by injury type, this kits provides instructions verbally (keeping your hands free) to anyone who might need to administer first aid. I know I'd appreciate having one of these around our office, because I don't know if anyone here has taken a first aid class...somehow I doubt it.

From the site:
The kit is separated into individually labeled and color-coded injury packs so the user has all the supplies and easy to follow instructions for managing a specific injury. The audio module in each injury card takes the technology a step further. By the squeeze of a button, the module narrates step-by-step instructions to manage the injury, pausing and repeating when necessary for accurate response.
