I've been thinking about getting a netbook for when we go traveling. It would be useful to have something to be able to read books, take notes, write emails / blog posts without necessarily going to an internet cafe. Ideally have somewhere we could offload the pictures from the digital camera to. Another requirement would be that I wouldn't cry if someone robbed me for it.
I was mentioning this to Andrew and he pointed out that if he was getting something portable, he'd actually want it portable: small enough to fit into a pocket. So, along the lines of having something to tap out notes and check emails, something like an ipod touch or a pda would be ideal. The only "gotcha" to that idea is not having somewhere to offload pictures to - and that's the thing that we've found has continued to a limiting factor on our travels. (aside, I see I can now get a 8G card for my camera for 59$. Pretty cheap fix to that problem).
Maybe all I need is a pda - if they even makes those anymore...Posted by jim at November 2, 2008 07:44 PM
