Startup LinkRedirector has a very promising tool for marketing data geeks and the rest of thw world

I am very fascinated by LinkRedirector. It is a startup that lets you redirect a short url to a different destination based on some parameters that you can set.

Use Cases:

  1.  You want returning visitors to go to a different page than a new visitor. Maybe even a page that adds " Welcome Back" .
  2.  Use it to direct people who come from different operating systeme differently. Maybe iOS users can go directly to a app download page. 
    1. My test scenario http://lrd.to/shashi
      1. If you are using iOS then you go to http://www.CarryonCurry.com 
      2. Other users will come to this website.
      3. Comment here and let me know if you came from one of my test uRLS or click http://lrd.to/shashi now
  3. Campaign Changes
    1. You could run a campaign and then once that is over change the URL and wont need a lot of web server help
  4. Good Analytics
    1. I have not used them yet but LinkRedirector has a capability to add Campaign Names, tags 
  5. Custom URLS
    1. Right now you use lrd.to and then you can customize the subsequent url like I did.
    2. They may have plans for you to use your own url
  6. Freemium
    1. I am not clear about the pricing and it may have been in an email from LinkRedirector but they have a free and a premium model.
Early impression is very good. At the time of writing in 44 minutes i got 143 redirections when I shared the link http://lrd.to/shashi  on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Check out LinkRedirector for sure

Flying Emirates 232 from Washington Dulles to Dubai - Review

Emirates flies the Airbus A380-800 from Washington DC to Dubai
There was a time that flying between India and the US meant a stopover in London, Frankfurt, Paris or Amsterdam (I loved Amsterdam). However in the past decade this has changed dramatically. Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service.
From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night.
I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
