I have to admit – Kayak for the Windows Store is a really good application

Kayak Hotel Selection Screen Kayak Hotel Selection Screen[/caption] I pick a hotel and click on it’s tile – La Reserve Paris. At that point, the tile opens up to show the hotel’s details.

That does raise some questions about how vendors will use Metro apps.

Hopefully they use it for the full transaction because it seems a little jarring to leave Metro for ANY reason. Having said that, it was a great experience and shines on Windows 8 Tablets.]]>
