According to Forbes, business leaders from a variety of industries have joined forces to face one unexpected enemy. That enemy? Log-ins and passwords. The group includes such giants as PayPal, Amazon, Visa, MasterCard, and Aetna.

Swooshing in just in time for the start of the ski season is Méribel’s newest ski-in/ski-out hotel. With admirable restraint, the Paris-based interior architect Pierre Yovanovitch has gently terraced into the side of a meringue-white slope to spread Le Coucou’s 55 rooms, suites and chalets over ten cascading levels of rugged stone walls and spacious terraces.

Last year, we wrote about the troubling problem of Airbnb rentals with hidden cameras, spying on guests. (Back in April, a family even found a hidden camera live-streaming their stay at an Airbnb in Ireland.) But in our latest edition of Hack or Wack, we ask another important, related question: Would you willingly book a cheap hotel or Airbnb, knowing you’d be live-streaming your entire stay on YouTube?

For years now, luxury hotel group Six Senses has impressed upon travelers the positive effects of adhering, honestly, to the values of the destinations they visit.

For additional Barcelona take a look at our Word of Mouth: Barcelona guide from earlier this year and our personal notes on visiting the city.
