MUMBAI, INDIA - The butler did it. He saved me from getting completely lost in this chaotic, exciting city, saved me a half-hour of high-powered haggling and saved me at least $40 in rupees. The convenience is worth 10 times that. Needing an inexpensive gym-style zipper bag to haul home files, press kits and gifts accumulated on my first trip to India, I was about to plunge into the steamy streets of Mumbai (locals still ...

Qualcomm Wednesday won one of its many battles with Nokia over patents and related licensing fees, as a Dutch court dismissed a lawsuit filed by the Finnish phone maker.

The Dutch court action was one piece of a busy news day for ... [full story]

Transplanted Los Angeles "Valley Boy" Skip Nessel claims he designed Elixir, his martini bar and restaurant in Jackson, Miss., "to feel like I was at very cool cocktail party with all my friends."

For decades, a cartoon mustached Maharaja in striped turban and pointy slippers relaxing on a flying carpet, ruled the skies between the U.S. and India. The Air India mascot had zero competition wooing worldly, adventurous American tourists to visit the Taj Mahal, grand palaces and ride the elephants. No longer.

If Madison Avenue ever opens a Catchy Name Hall of Fame, Embassy Suites has my vote. Each word conjures up visions of power, elegance, a private sanctuary for the well-heeled and well-connected. A place where diplomats hold back-channel conversations in total secrecy to free a political hostage or shore up a sagging currency.
