This is a pretty cool API leveraging Google's machine learning
We've just released our Cloud Vision API. You can now get rich image annotations, fast, and at scale!

If you ever wondered about the origin of airport codes, check out this post
What's up with those 3 letter airport codes, like "FAT"?
With this cool site I just heard about, you can discover the (sometimes weird, sometimes banal) reason behind each code.

Oh, and FAT = "Fresno Airport Terminal," in case you were wondering.  Yeah, I was hoping for something more interesting, too. :)


Making sure you're searching with the right airports
Nowadays, of course, most flight search engines let you do searches by city names, but that has its own challenges.  How do you know you're selecting the airport -- or airports -- with the best flight options?

With Google Flights (http://www.google.com/flights), start by typing in a city name, and then optionally click the little + icon next it (see image).  You'll then instantly learn about nearby airports and how far they are from the city center... and can add one or more to your search.

I'm a Program Manager working on Google Flights and am always curious to hear your thoughts and questions about the service. :-)

Happy traveling!

This essay is an excellent read.

To carry the analogy further, if you are a driver, share the road.
