Divan Palmira Hotel in Bodrum, Turkey: The End of an Era?

This 4th of July marked my sixth consecutive visit to the Divan Palmira Hotel in Bodrum, Turkey. My visit this year prompted me to write this review. The Divan Palmira Hotel is located in the Golturkbuku region of Bodrum. Two recent cover stories published last year in The New York Times Travel Section called this Aegien Sea summer destination The St. Tropez of Turkey. For those readers who would like to know more about Bodrum, especially the village of Golturkbuku, there is plenty of well written reading material (including these two 2006 New York Times travel write-ups). In this review, I will try to stay focused specifically on my most recent trip, the hotel, the changes which took place at this hotel this year and the highlights of my trip. The New York Times - Jan / 2006 The New York Times - Aug / 2006 Our Arrival on Saturday, June 30, 2007 When I emailed the hotel... (more)

Wireless Gambling Is Born: "SMS-TV" Wireless Technology Set to Play Major Role

SMS-TV technology is about to explode globally. Precisely because it is relatively unregulated. Unlike land line telephone service, most cell phone services, and dial-up Internet, cable television's cables and satellite transmissions are not regulated by such US government laws as the 1961 Wire Act. While gambling and obscenity are regulated by the federal government over telecom technologies, they are unable to restrict cable TV, or more importantly, interactive TV. Sit on your couch, point your cell phone at your TV screen, and text-message your placement of a $10 casino chip on the roulette wheel's number 24, You've just placed a real bet, and can watch the spin of the wheel, and the results in real time. Fans of FOX-TV's American Idol have been enjoying SMS-TV technology every time they have text messaged their votes. Publicly traded Zone4play is about to offer T... (more)
