Staying on the same topic of travelling, these gadgets will help you fight your boredom or help you get out of a tricky situation.

Personally I think that some of the devices are merged and provide multiple functionality. In my case my PDA doubles up as my MP3 player and also the camera. But I prefer to use a PDA instead of a smartphone, because of the size considerations. Also, I use the PDA to detect WiFi hotspots, so I don't need a WiFi detector.

All in all a good story to run through. Check out The top 10 gadgets for business travellers.

EDIT: Oops, seems I have missed out on including the link. It's there now! 


This is a good article for anyone who will be travelling on business or pleasure for that matter. A few things to plan for before you leave and also while you are there.

I am sure most of us would think ahead and figure some of these things, but there are a few good suggestions that I would not think about. Specially ideas like getting your hotel address written down on the native language, etc are good.

Check out the full article How to Shield Yourself from Business Travel Nightmares.

This is a very useful resource for anyone who will be making presentations as part of their work or education courses.

whilst most of the tips can be attributed to common sense, it does give some points that you will not think of. It is a simple presentation in itself which is very easy to retain. I hate tips that run for pages. I think tips which are longer than a few short points defy the purpose. You are not reading the tips to remember a long list of tips. You are likely to pickup a few that will stick with you or appeal to you. In that sense this is a very good reading…

The Craig Web Experience: Presentation Tips

Now this is a cool idea, Portable Apps! I guess you can call it the next revolution. Although the proponents have not labeled it revolutionary, I personally think it is. Or, the next big idea after the Internet!

Why I say it is the next best thing after the Internet is, if Internet propelled mobile computing to the next level and called fuelled the notion 'the network is the computer', by having web based applications that allowed people to work from anywhere by logging on to the Internet, this will enable us to work, even without the connection, from anywhere in the world!

I like the idea of carrying my web browser with all my bookmarks, my calender with all my appointments (I wont need to keep syncing my PDA between my home and work computers), carrying my virus guard with me (again, I wont have to upgrade virus guards at work and at home), etc. This is very cool!

Just imagine the possibilities, you wont be dependant on the computer or the connection to the Internet anymore! It'll be like carrying your laptop in your pocket! I know what I am talking about will take time to realize, but at least, seems we are heading at the right direction.

Man, I am hooked on to this idea! 

This may be the best news if you were looking for an excuse for 'apprently' sleeping too much! This article 'sleep more and stay slim' explains it.

The latest studies show that if you don't sleep for least 7 hours in the night you are at a higher risk of gaining weight. And here I was assuming that losing sleep will result in you losing weight. Not that I used sleep deprivation as a weight loss method!

Well, now that I know this, I wont have to worry about losing weight when I have to stay up late 😉 

For anybody who will be travelling this will be very useful. Whenever I travel Iusually arrive at my destination with clothes that are wrinkled and crushed.This should help prevent that in the future.
