I recently came back from a seven-week trip to Asia, visiting Japan, Hong Kong and China. I always make a point of taking inventory of the electronic gadgets that I packed when I travelled. It is a nostalgic measure of how technology has evolved, constantly improving my personal and professional life over the years.
This time I carried an iPhone 5, an iPhone 4, a Kindle, a Nexus 7 and a Macbook Air.
Throughout the entire trip, my iPhone 5 was my camera-of-choice and my "Star Trek" communicator (whenever I had Internet connection). With Photo Stream and iMessage, I was able to stay in constant contact and share real time experience with my family at home (who are almost all Apple users).
