Travel aggregator Kayak made a few changes to get noticed by hopeful travelers. It will add travel alerts that act like Google news alerts based on the travel criteria entered. If e-mail won't cut it, KayakBot can be added to an AIM buddy list to chat with you about available deals.

To signify the company's evolution to a meta-search 2.0 site, Kayak updated with a new logo.
