Get A Room!

Great write-up in today's business section of The Dom about young innovative go-getter, Veronica Nobbs that appears to have gotten the jump over larger Kiwi Online Travel Agencies. 

Nobbs has come up with a mobile app that can book last minute accommodation - with a twist.

iPhone users can book accommodation on-the-go, with a service accessible after midday that allows people to book a last-minute room for that night. The point of difference is that accommodation providers can offer surplus last-minute inventory at discounted prices after having a fair crack at selling rooms via other mainstream channels.

Customers that are stuck in town after an elongated meeting or have an opportune hook-up at an inner-city bar can whip-out their iPhone and "make a booking from launching the app to receipt in just ten seconds!" 

Get a Room sounds like a great concept and I love the supporting media:
