AirHelp

Get paid when you're delayed!

If your flight was delayed, canceled or overbooked you could get up to $680!

WIRED
When an airline bumps us from a flight or delays us for hours on end, most of us accept our meager meal vouchers and swallow our pride. A bold few might actually file a claim for compensation, but when an airline either fails to answer the claim or rejects it outright, those passengers usually give up, too.
TechCrunch
Few things are more dreadful than dealing with airline customer service. Fortunately, there's a startup that wants to make those calls for you. For hassle-free travel, is raising $12 million in Series A funding from a group of investors, including Khosla Ventures and Evan Williams .
USA TODAY
Don't get me wrong: I'm all about buying American. In fact, I'll go out of my way to search for items made in the USA and will even pay more for American-made products. But when it comes to buying airfare to foreign destinations, I think twice.

I'm a shit musician. As a guitarist I was the type of guy that played an E-minor and then a B-minor and then stared at the audience expectantly. They were unimpressed.
Refinery29
The means? Your keyboard, of course, which Paratap turns into an eclectic musical instrument, something between sampler and synth. Tap any letter A to Z and you'll be met with a wide range of sounds - a drum break, a heavenly synth pad, an explosive Rorschach pitter-patter.
Evolver
You might have played Patatap last week as it made its way around email, Facebook, Twitter, and other avenues. If you haven't, you probably should. People like this "portable animation and sound kit" that lets you "create melodies charged with moving shapes" on a touchscreen web browser (phone or tablet) or on a computer.

Forbes
What is an entrepreneur to do when he starts a company, sells it to a giant, then suffers as the new parent spoils the child? If you're Eric Yuen you leave Cisco Systems and start Zoom -- a fast-growing Sequoia-backed videoconferencing startup
