Allison: Protecting Your Laptop in Hot Weather
Top 8 Tips
To ensure you can use your laptop on the go—keep in mind you should never leave that laptop in the hot car.

And pack your laptop wisely to keep it safe.
Bill: Geo-tag Your Vacation Photos
If you’re familiar with Eye-fi, you know they make SD camera memory with Wi-Fi support, enabling you to export photos wirelessly. Some of their newer cards offer geotagging. It works by using Skyhook’s technology which looks for any wireless hotspots broadcasting a signal and sees if it’s a hotspot with a known location. It’s not perfect, and don’t expect it to be useful in the middle of nowhere, but if you’re vacationing in an urban area, it can work pretty well.
