Last week Mari hit the beach (with her gadgets)… and now it’s my turn. We’re going to spend a few days playing in Vegas, before I head off to California for work. So I snapped a pic of some devices I’ll be bringing along (in the best backpack ever):
First up are my Shure buds – great sound and passive noise cancellation. I never leave home without them. Next is a Nokia N73 since, as you may have heard, we’re beta testing SlingPlayer Mobile for Symbian OS. Then I have a new-to-me (via ebay) Bluetooth GPS puck to replace my previous GPS unit. I’m going to experiment with Telenav ($10/mo) and Google Maps (free) before investing in Windows Mobile software. Above that is my work-provided Verizon EVDO card which will see use in my Macbook Pro. I’m giving my Blackjack a breather – my current day-to-day phone and Slinging device is the Treo 750. Last up is AblePlanet’s Clear Harmony noise canceling headset (review sample) which I hope to cover in the next few weeks. Of course I’ll also have my small Panasonic Lumix with me.
Don’t expect too much out of me while I’m gone — Like my recent trip to Copenhagen, I’m planning to limit my time on the grid until I hit CA. As soon as I figure out how to turn off push email.
