  1. As a technology connoisseur, product reviewer, news editor and owner of my own tech site, I suspect I travel with more gear the average person would. For a quick weekend…

    In about a month I'll be traveling to China, the flight from Colombia to Los Angeles takes about 7 hours and from Los Angeles to Shanghai takes 14, so I'm really planning to take as many gadgets as I can to distract myself (I can't sleep in planes). Along with me I'll have my iPhone 4, my trusty Lenovo Y460 (includes a GT550m for gaming), a Nikon D5000 D-SLR Camera, probably my dusty Nintendo DS Lite (which I haven't used in about a year), a Razer Orochi Mouse... that's probably it, I hope it helps a lot distracting me during those long flights :)

    Hmmm, things which never really leave me are:

    JVC Black Series HA-M750 Closed Headphones
    FiiO e5 Portable Amplifier
    Cowon iAudio 9 16GB

    Samsung Galaxy S (Rooted and custom rom with custom kernel)
    Fujifilm HS10 Hybrid Digital Camera.

    At the top of my list is my Nikon D7000 with a few different lenses,
    A Canon G9 as a backup camera,
    My iPod Touch 4G for tunes,
    and my laptop. I don't currently have a tablet, though I intend on getting one in the very near future.

    For a new tablet, I've narrowed my choices down to the #1 Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, #2 Asus EEE Pad Transformer, and #3 Kindle Fire (which I may get along with one of the other two just for grins).
  5. I bring my shoes.

    Hmm, let me think... my basics for travel: MacBook Pro, headphones and iPhone.
    Then depending on the destination: Asus portable wi-fi router and spare ethernet cable, GPS, Canon Rebel XSi/Panasonic HD camcorder, and my desktop-sized mouse and mousepad (Razer Deathadder).

    Just a phone.
    And caviar of the correct viscosity. Thats about it.
  8. I'm a little anti-social I guess, I got rid of my cell because I missed being able to get away from people. As for gadgets, on the rare occasion I'll bring my laptop with me. If I'm going on vacation I'll bring my camera...
  9. -I never even travel from the freezer to the microwave (college student) without my Motorola Atrix

    -When I travel I make sure my ipod is fully charged and freshly updated with the songs I may or may not have just got from thepiratebay to insure sanity

    -An 8 GB flash drive and a 2 GB spare in the event the 8 GB one gets washed again

    -I remove the dust from my psp if its a long trip

    -Last but not least a true geek is never fully dressed without his Multi-tool

    ... It seems Im an oddity without even owning a laptop but I had a nettop once that I hated due to lack of horse power and the unwillingness to pay for a nice one; considering I have a gaming PC at home and I paid lab fees I dont really have the need

    Lets see newspaper, a book, my glasses so I can see real far out the window in hd. Something that takes time to eat like beef jerky, pistachios, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds.

    If I still had it id say my htc droid x smart phone with head phones.

If I have an extra backpack, I might bring a cellular phone, as long as I'm not planning to walk long distances, I have to be careful though because sometimes the antenna slips out and breaks.
