BlueTie Calendar now Orbitzs

Being able to search for flights right from my calendar does help a bit on a busy day. And BlueTie hit this spot right on when it launched an integration with Orbitz yesterday. In case you haven’t heard of BlueTie, it is an emerging competitor to Google Apps and Zimbra with it’s own set of e-mail, calendaring, and productivity tools targeted at SMBs. With this integration BlueTie users get to search for flight and hotel options right from their calendar. Good part about the feature is that for any search you run, BlueTie fetches the results and maps them onto your Calendar making helping you make decide faster. All along, no ads or popups. BlueTie does the CPA spin to make money and avoid pain to users.

Couple of issues in my using the service – First, I don’t use BlueTie. Second, BlueTie UI is awful. Besides that Google will get this done sooner or later.
