Travel
Travelling is always pleasant, to begin with. Two are the sites that I use mostly for arranging almost everything related to travel are:

Expedia: A site where you can arrange almost anything related to your trips. You can get some good prices if you search carefully. It is pretty convenient to have all good services in one place.
Agoda: When in come to booking a hotel, Agoda is my first option. Huge selection of hotels everywhere in the world and very good prices. I haven’t found a site so far to compare with this one.
Gadgets for everyday use
When it comes to gadget two sites I mostly use everyday to check on the latest news:

Engadget: The ultimate source of gadget news. Updated daily with lots of news.
Gizmodo: Keeeping up the pace, Gizmodo completes Engadget in some ways. We all know that Peter Rojas left Gizmodo in 2004 to create Engadget. Good for us! More sites, more updated information.
