Hotel owners complain of being held ‘hostage’ by TripAdvisor users

Hotel owners complain of being held ‘hostage’ by TripAdvisor users

Detailed by The Telegraph this week, a group of hotels and restaurants in England are noticing an increased number of direct blackmail threats from patrons in regards to leaving a negative TripAdvisor review. Much of the hotel industry, especially bed & breakfast lodging, is dependent on sites like TripAdvisor to increase booking volume during the year. To initiate the threat, the customer usually mentioned that they are a regular TripAdvisor user and will post a negative review about their visit if a demand is not met. Demands include freebies during a meal like a bottle of wine or dessert, a reduction of the total bill or room upgrades.

Speaking about the blackmail threats, British Hospitality Association deputy chief executive Martin Couchman said “ While it’s very difficult to put an exact figure on how widespread the problem is, it is clear that a small minority of online reviewers are directly blackmailing – or sometimes subtly blackmailing – restaurants for their own gain .”

Thieves tampering with ATMs could soon face nasty blast of hot foam and chemicals

Report: Google is testing a complete redesign of Web-based Gmail

Report: Google is testing a complete redesign of Web-based Gmail

Detailed by Geek.com recently, the development team that works on Gmail is internally testing a simplified layout of the Web-based version. With more similarities to the mobile interface, the new Web interface, as seen in the screenshots, has been created with responsive design in mind. For those that are unfamiliar, responsive design mean that a site will automatically position elements on the screen based off the screen size. Basically, someone viewing the interface on a 1080p 24-inch monitor or a 10-inch tablet will have the same experience.

On the left side of the screen, Google appears to be transitioning to “fly-in” menus to select different folders or various inboxes. On the right side of the screen, Google has added a quick access menu at the bottom to quickly start an email as well as a Hangouts option at the top to launch into chat with an email contact. In the middle of the screen, Google has positioned all recent emails. The additional width of this layout will likely allow for longer subject lines. Oddly, there doesn’t seem to be a position for Google Adsense in this layout, a element of the current Gmail interface.
