Gadget Queen

I am a gadget queen.  If there is a gismo which saves me time and/or hassle, I’ll take it.  Here are four gadgets to consider for your next business trip:

  1. The Kindle This is probably one of my favourite inventions.  I love to read.  With this handy reading tablet, I can take more books with me – even new bestsellers which are still in hardback.  There’s nothing like a good book and a cup of coffee, but when I can’t have either, I at least have my Kindle.
  2. The Vicorinox Presentation Master Flight This super portable, tightly packed business tool does it all – and I mean all.  With a 32GB removable flash drive, laser pointer, Bluetooth capability (to control power point presentations) AND a fingerprint biometric sensor for password protection, you will surely feel like a somewhat nerdy version of James Bond.  Plus, it comes with or without sharp tools (for frequent flyers).
  3. The Tumi Scale This invention saves me time and money at check-in.  I can plan each bag to maximize weight, and I know ahead of time if I will have to pay a baggage fee.  Luckily, this tool helps me avoid those fees as much as possible.
  4. SteriPEN Traveler This is for those of you who travel off the beaten path… or frequent Mexico’s all-inclusives.  SteriPEN harnesses the brilliant power of ultraviolet light to make water safe to drink.  It eliminates over 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and protozoa that cause water-borne illness.  Handy if you need to brush your teeth before a board meeting in a country without quality plumbing.
