Travel Sites Set Their Sights on Business Travelers

One need only follow a few publicists on Twitter to see all of the airport check-ins, delays, landings, and layovers that the industry is making as part of the regular course of business. This week, there were a couple of announcements from Gogobot, a company that only launched in November 2010, and Orbitz that might make getting to and fro a little easier.
