What could be better than kicking back and relaxing poolside with the World Wide Web at your fingertips? Just get a waterproof case, ok?
With any luck, you'll be able to get out of the office this summer and enjoy some leisure time either lying by a beach, hiking through the mountains or just lazing about a resort somewhere. In this day and age, though, no matter how much we like to get away from it all, it seems technology follows us everywhere. In fact, it's become so pervasive we can't seem to even relax on vacation unless we're somehow connected to the outside world. Well, that seems to be the way it is, so why fight it? Embrace it instead in a positive way that can enhance your vacation. Instead of loading down your suitcase with books, why not take along a snazzy e-reader instead? Take along a waterproof digital camera so that you can surf the waves and snap away at the same time, or swim with the fish and rock out to your favorite tunes with a waterproof MP3 player. And don't forget to bring along a solar-powered charger to power up all your devices. Here's a list of summer travel gadgets meant to enhance, not to detract from, your well-deserved vacation.
