Leading online travel agent Preview Travel (Nasdaq: PTVL) has been mentioned favorably by various analysts and publications in recent weeks, including Business Week and The Motley Fool. However, after a nice run-up, the stock fell in eight consecutive trading sessions leading up to Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the stock charged back with a bang, gaining 1-7/16 to 23-15/16 after the company launched a travel protection program to offer its customers insurance and emergency assistance services. It will be interesting to see if Preview Travel can build on the momentum. Preview Travel is a stock that many feel is cheap and a possible takeover target, but it remains to be seen whether the stock soars to new heights or whether it will simply just stay in a holding pattern. Shares of Preview Travel were up 5/16 to 24-1/4 in early trading today.

What do you think of today's voice recognition technology?
It's great -- the tech has improved vastly in recent years.
It's the wave of the future, but quality is still hit or miss.
I like it for texting, especially when I'm driving.
I only use it when I have to, like with IVR systems.
I avoid using it, because most voice systems are still terrible.
It's an unnecessary frill that I can easily live without.
