Airbnb Will Now Offer Luxury Accommodation Options In New Feature Roll-Out

But Airbnb is now adding four new property types - vacation home, unique space, bed and breakfast, and boutique - allowing hosts to better showcase their unique qualities and guests to find their ideal accommodation.

In Chicago, for example, there's a luxury loft near Wrigley Field available on Airbnb Plus for $79 a night. This program will offer various benefits throughout your trip. Other benefits of Airbnb Plus include professional photography and customer support. Airbnb Plus kicks off with 2,000 homes in 13 cities that have been verified for a higher level of quality and comfort, such as premium bathrooms, bedding and kitchens, Chesky said. The service provider also introduced Collections (homes suited for special occasions like weddings or dinner parties), four new property types - vacation home, unique space, B&B and boutique - and Beyond Airbnb, a new tier launching this spring that offers "custom designed trips of a lifetime". At the same time, Airbnb also is struggling with regulatory setbacks.

Ethan said: "There will be a mix of pricing within Airbnb Plus homes". When Airbnb was first launched, the idea was 100 homes per city-a list of listings, as Chesky put it. Things have meteorically changed since Airbnb's 2008 inception. This makes it hard for hosts to stand out and guests can't always find what they're looking for. Later this year, Airbnb plans to offer luxury properties with the promise of "world-class hospitality", as part of its "Beyond by Airbnb" scheme. All these basically already existed on the platform, but that segmentation wasn't there yet.

Rainfall warning is in effect
Two lanes of traffic at Eglinton Avenue West and Rosemount Avenue have also been closed due to flooding of nearby Massey Creek. Environment Canada has released a special weather statement for York Region. "Widespread fog is persisting this morning".

The Airbnb Host Community is broad and diverse with more than 4.5 million places to stay around the world.

Airbnb's chief executive, Brian Chesky, is scheduled to announce the news about Airbnb Plus at a news conference in San Francisco this morning at the Masonic, an auditorium in the city's Nob Hill neighborhood. Details about the program, called Superguest, are sparse at the moment, but a release from Airbnb says a pilot version will be available to 10,000 members this summer and to the wider user base by the end of 2018.

Last year, Chesky asked on Twitter what a guest membership program should look like.

Microsoft is turning off push notifications for Windows Phone 7.5 and 8.0
Windows Phone 7.5 was first released in 2011, while Windows Phone 8.0 was released on October 29, 2012. It is noteworthy, Microsoft will continue to push out updates to Windows 8.1 and 10 devices.

Chesky said that in addition to those categories, Airbnb will be adding "thousands" of search categories, so that guests will be able to search for categories and amenities as varied and specific as Rustic, Balcony, Family Friendly, Near Zoo, Crib, etc.

Not everyone is as enthusiastic about Airbnb as Airbnb is.

A major hotel industry group slammed Airbnb's expansion as a sham. If Airbnb wants to enter the hoteling business, then it needs to be regulated, taxed and subject to the same safety compliances and oversight that law-abiding hotel companies adhere to each and every day. In San Francisco, for example, after initially fighting city officials, Airbnb in May agreed to kick hosts off the platform if they didn't register with the city - a practice the company put into place at the beginning of this year.

There's Another iOS bug Crashing iPhones, iMessage and Other Apps
As soon as the message is received, Apple's operating system crashes and you have no way of resurrecting your messaging apps. This is apparently to enhance adoption of new features, such as Core ML, SiriKit, and ARKit, that all are a part of iOS 11 .

And it's on the verge of making the company money.
