GeekGirl Quickie 3: Travel Gads!

Hey Geek Guys and Gals!

As promised, here is the QUICKIE that I shot right before I left on my trip to Bali, Indonesia. I didn't have time to finish editing & uploading it before I went, so I finished it this week, right when I got back! I talk about some fun gadgets that I call "travel essentials" that complement my high-tech, plugged-in life. Check it out and let me know your thoughts:

I'm working on Episode 7, a topic that I can proudly say was suggested by a GeekGirl blog buddy, and it's going to focus on the ubiquitous iPhone. If you have any gripes about the iPhone, either the previous versions or the latest & greatest, email them to me at I'd especially love some VIDEO QUESTIONS emailed to me in any format as long as the file size doesn't exceed 7 MB (or, upload your question to YouTube and send me a link!) and I just MIGHT include your video question in the next podcast! (PS-the video question can be about ANYTHING that you think I might be able to answer for you!)

That's all for now, gang.

And make sure to subscribe to my videos on iTunes (click HERE for my iTunes Podcast Home Page, and then click "subscribe")...they are FREE and the quality on iTunes is way better than on YouTube. Plus, you can take me with you on your iPod. :)

Hi Daria -

Those are some great gadgets. I am traveling at the end of the year and didn't know that any ole power adapter would work for my macbook. Better safe than sorry!

How did hte AT&T gadget work for you?

Hi Marisol! the At&T gadget worked great, except for in my hotel room on the bed, as i was in a more heavily foresty area of the island where data transmission was shoddy (my blackberry could barely get one bar there!) so i had to resort to the wi-fi at the hotel, which luckily was FREE! but at all the airports and everywhere else, i used the USB connect and it worked beautifully! i highly recommend it if you won't have wi-fi. BUT, if you will be in areas with good/free wi-fi, it might not be that worth it, so you have to judge for yourself!

good luck, let me know how it goes, and cheers!

Hey Daria!
Welcome back :)
I have always wondered about those cell phone cards! I travel a lot for work and that would really come in handy!
How does it work exactly? Do you have to buy a plan for it or does it piggy-back off of your existing cell phone plan?

Also, can't wait for your iPhone podcast (doing cartwheels inside). I'm a closet fan of the iPhone ☺. I know it has a few quirks but it SO makes up for it with everything else it has to offer. I actually tried the LG Vue (another touch screen phone) and it was HORRIBLE. I could not wait to return it. I was reluctant to even try the iPhone but I'm so glad I did. All hype aside, it has truly help me organize my life (how dramatic, right?) LOL.

That At&T internet adapter was cool! I don't have an iPhone...but when I can afford it I am going to get the new Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 which should be coming out really soon. I have had my eye on it for a long time, but it's probably going to be reallly expensive...
