  1. Kyak? You’re totes making these names up.
    “Pitchforkmedia.com” Its a popular indie music blog memorable for it’s snarky content and biting critiques.

  2. Kayak and Farecast are okay. Farecast IMO is just a gimmick. Trends are one thing, but pretending to “Predict” how fares are going to go is a little bit too much. Especially since from my experience, they aren’t really that accurate. Kayak on the other hand, while coming up with a lot of results, have a lot of dead links within those results. In other words, you can’t always buy what you click. My personal favorite for travel is Sidestep.com. They do everything that Kayak does (But better) Plus they have some added features like travel guides that Kayak does not. For me, I like content rich sites, and Kayak just doesn’t cut it. Plus , Sidestep can get you prices as good or cheaper the majority of the time.
