[ibimage==29469==Large==none==self==null]This week's featured interview is with Chris Brown, Group Vice President of Mobile at Orbitz Worldwide.  Chris shares intriguing stats on mobile adoption for booking travel and Orbitz's mobile growth over the last 3 years.  Chris led his team to build Apple's editor's choice app allowing users to book a flight in as little as 3 minutes and travel packages in the neighborhood of $1,200...that's a $1,200 purchase on your phone. Creating large behavioral shifts in purchasing travel, introducing localized, real time travel planning once you reach your location and managing a happy crew of coders and designers is Chris' passion.  And he makes it sound easy...

This week's music feature is Chicago's own Pink Frost.
