The one thing that makes them so different from the others is their approach to searching information. These guys understood that traveler wants to go somewhere at specific date and tends to do specific things, so they ask these three questions before searching. Unsurprisingly, this helps to return relevant results with less trouble. Of course, those results are not perfect all the time, but we tried some requests and were pleased. We wouldn't stop where Goby.com left us, but they provide a good start for your further quest on information.

Being focused solely on US, it's understandable that service is available only in English, but we hope that after developing their search algorithms and getting enough hype to become a serious player on crowded market of travel information providers, they will be able to extend both their geography and language skills.

Goby.com integrates maps from Google and pitures from Flickr. We are also very pleased to see them playing nicely with social networking - you can both subscribe to their feed on Twitter and become a fan of their page on Facebook. They are also hiring, so it seems that even more nice features are coming.
