Adam Brown has discovered the real reason why I'm using TripIt.com to track my travel these days...Notes 8.5 integration!

An example of how I am using this new feature is leveraging TripIT. TripIT is a new Web 2.0 type service that enables me to forward all my airline and accommodation bookings to it. When I email a booking to it the clever team at TripIT somehow automagically reads the itinerary and adds it to my TripIT Calendar. Now I can access my TripIT calendar directly via a web browser or via my Blackberry Bold's browser but I can also subscribe to an iCal feed. ...

So all I do is Add a Calendar, select an iCalendar Feed as the source, enter the URL to my TripIT feed, select a colour, and their you go. Your flights etc are automatically added to your calendar!!  ... Now there is a reason to upgrade to Notes 8.5 when it arrives!
Well, there's more than one reason, but...

TripIt is one of several "Web 2.0" tools that can or will integrate with Notes 8.5. The benefits of tools like TripIt, TwitNotes, and other connections are quite clear.  A lot going on in this space.

Adam has screen shots and all the details...
