Why I Love Flying Virgin America Airlines


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

I recently flew on Virgin America airlines, for a trip to California. Traveling life doesn’t get much better than this, I’m telling you.

I had access to wireless Internet. I was able to watch some television via Hulu and even keep an eye on my Email. There was a USB plugin and a regular AC outlet right at my fingertips. Heck – I even had a nice glass of wine! The seats were actually comfy, and I had enough room for myself and my stuff.

Packing for a trip is another matter all together. I don’t check bags, so I have to figure out a way to fit everything I might need into a carry-on. The “personal item” is always a laptop bag filled with assorted tech gadgets, cables and paraphernalia, of course. Being a dude, it’s easy for me to pack light when it comes to clothing. Being a geek, it’s difficult to whittle down the gizmos I will need at any given moment of a trip.

Getting through airport security sucks – we all know this. However, I’ve gotten it nailed down to an art form now. I know to pull my laptop or tablet out of the case prior to putting it on the belt. I don’t wear baggy clothing. I don’t have anything in my pockets that I wouldn’t want the guards to ask about. I know better than to attempt to bring anything fun or questionable on the flight with me. I smile at the guards and acknowledge them as I walk through the metal detector, letting them know I appreciate that they have a job to do. These tips may not seem like much, but I haven’t been pulled aside for a dreaded pat-down yet.

Can you think of a better way to travel? Leave me a follow-up comment, and let me know what your favorite way of travel is. Which airline do you prefer, and why? Do you even fly? Personally, I love to fly and I love to travel. Virgin America has it going on!

What Else can I put Under my USB Microscope?

I reviewed the USB Microscope earlier in the day. I was checking out things like my own hair. Anyway, this gigantic house fly landed on Ponzi’s head a bit ago. So I decided I had to take a look at it under the microscope.

The quality of this microscope is just amazing. I have it on low magnification, and you can clearly see every tiny detail. It’s just unbelievable how good this thing really is. The clarity is so good, that just looking at this fly is grossing me out. I have the chills now! Want to see Mr. Fly?

What else can I check out with this microscope?
