What’s The Best Travel Tech Gear?

This is a guest post by one of my readers, Paul.  He’s a road warrior, marketing guy and dad.  I’m always interested in what people carry around for technology, curious whether I have the best gear.  I plan to break down my backpack in a future post.  But, for now, here’s what Paul recommends as his go-to tech: I was a road warrior for so many years that some personnel at United,  Southwest and a few convention hotels in Vegas knew me by name (not good).  And, now with a family, I travel frequently for business […]
