Dohop, Reevoo, Honeywell, OnAir, GoIndonesia and STA Travel all appear in our roundup of the stories making news and driving opinion on 1 November.
Iceland-based metasearch engine Dohop has done a complete redesign. Here are four key points worth noting about its gorgeous new look:
The site now shows results in real-time. (It used to wait until it had a pool of results.)
It's now "responsive", meaning it'll look great when viewed on any size screen. ("No app is forthcoming," says the company.")
If the site finds a cheaper price on an alternate date, a little blue box will appear at the top of the screen to notify the user.
The site was designed by Icelandic digital advertising agency Skapalon.
