Some people carry way too many gadgets through airport security. Recently at Midway Airport in Chicago, there was a guy in front of me juggling a laptop, an iPhone, a second basic phone of some type, an iPod, and what appeared to be a Kindle e-book device. This was all in addition to his two carry-on pieces of luggage. Needless to say, it took this tech-dependent fellow forever to get through the TSA maze.
What do you usually take on business trips? According to a Conde Nast Traveler magazine survey, here’s a summary of the electronic items travelers take with them on business trips:
Laptop – 74%
Noise-Canceling Headphones – 33%
BlackBerry – 27%
iPhone – 26%
E-Readers – 12%
iPad – 8%
Netbook – 7%
I’ll bet this same survey will show the nifty little iPad at a much higher percentage this time next year. AccountingWEB soon will have an app for the iPad and also for the Kindle. Stay tuned for an upcoming announcement. You can view our sites as you try to proceed through airport security.
