A new iPhone app – Gate Guru – helps frequent fliers locate the best restaurants, shops, and services at more than 85 airports worldwide. It’s sort of like Yelp but within the confines of airport terminals. Gate Guru provides user reviews for the various airport businesses. I think this will be useful for business travelers who fly a lot and to a lot of new airports often. Yet, in many cases, airport food options are often limited to the chains we all know, which are bad.

Thanks to reading the post NutshellMail Brings Twitter and Facebook Right to Your Email Box on Steven Rubel’s Lifestream Blog on Posterous, I discovered NutshellMail, a great tool for coping with information and inbox overload.

And as social media continues to become a bigger part of our daily lives and businesses, it’s difficult to know what to check first and when.
