Ted Cruz shouldn't be in control of one computer much less the internet. I trust an international body more than him every day of the week.

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas says the federal government is about to give away control of the internet. Really? A shift has been in motion, we found, yet not a handoff of all things web. As of October 2016, that is, contractual federal oversight of the California nonprofit that’s managed website domains since 1998--the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers--is set to end in what proponents including ICANN and administration officials desc...

Mocked and shunned by society for wearing Google's dorky face upgrade, Google Glass fans were right all along.

Service standards need real improvement. Otherwise one of the best fast food outlets in the country.

Fluctuations in quality of both the service and the products over the last few years. Great decor and ambiance. The Miami restaurants (only) are far superior to TT on the food issue.

Quite pricey in comparison to the US version. Good service from what appears to be well-trained staff.

Always busy Service Station which pioneered the "C-Store" concept in Trinidad. The ubiquitous KFC Chain has a Drive-Thru and Walk-Up Counter co-located at the facility. Also contains one of, if not, THE first fully automated Drive-Through Car Wash Bays. Unfortunately, previously high service standards and levels of overall cleanliness and professionalism at this VERY popular Service Station have declined in recent years.

Another just OK Shopping Mall on the outskirts of downtown Port of Spain. With the exception of two banks, standard fast food options and maybe one or two stores (the pharmacy, a gourmet grocery) it is somewhat baffling to understand how the other stores have survived for so many years. There are two dine-in restaurants at Ellerslie - a basic Chinese restaurant and a popular fine dining nouveau Italian/Mediterranean spot. Again, parking can be challenging during peak hours.

Movie experience is usually satisfying and on par with several North American Large Format Theatres. Concession counter service can be morbidly slow during busy periods. Better organization and management of this aspect required. Prepare to miss at least the beginning of the movie if you don't arrive well in advance to buy your eats & drinks before the show.
