There are portable tech solutions that can allow you to stay connected while on the go. For example, a laptop, tablet, or smartphone can all be placed in your bag or pocket, and with the right accessories they can make the trip a breeze.
This is the smart way to travel, but it’s not as easy as some believe it to be. That’s because the laptop is only one device among many. A lot of devices can be connected to a laptop, and you will have to be able to connect them to each other and be able to access the laptop’s files and settings. This isn’t a new problem. It had been this way since the days of “real” computers in the early 1900s.
The problem is that devices can be connected to a laptop and still not be able to access its files. If you use a WiFi router, for example, your router will allow you to access the files and settings of a computer on the other side of the world, but this will not work while you have the laptop in your bag. You have to remember to turn it off, plug it into the laptop, and then connect it to the router.
While we’re at it, we should stop calling them “portable” devices as in “baggage,” as it is too narrow a definition. We should call them “mobile devices” as in “carry-on luggage,” as they are actually portable. With today’s technology, we all have a computer that can be used as a portable device.
I’ve been using a laptop for over a decade now as my primary computer and I’ve never had a problem with it. It works great and I’ve rarely had to turn it off. The same is true for most mobile phones. You can plug it into a computer and it will work just fine, no matter what. If you want to find out more about how to make your computer a mobile device check out my article called “How to Make Your Computer a Mobile Device.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve come to realize that the way I interact with computers is more like how I interact with mobile devices. That is, I’m more like a mobile device user than a computer user.
Sure, if I was running a gaming site, I would use a computer for a lot of the things I do with my phones, but I would use a tablet specifically for gaming. I have a tablet for my iPad and I use it for reading, browsing, and watching videos. I use it for playing games on my iPhone, and for watching videos on my TV.
The portable solutions we’re looking at today are quite powerful. We have mobile devices that are capable of doing amazing things, and their hardware is quite capable of doing amazing things too. They’re just not capable of doing everything we want to do, and as a result need to be re-engineered to do what we want to do.
Yes, its true, but this is not to say that the hardware should not be re-engineered at all (I am currently in the process of doing so). But I don’t think you can solve all of the problems with hardware in an instant. It takes time and effort to understand the underlying technology and design it for a specific application.
You see, most of what we would call portable devices (phones, tablets, laptops, cameras, etc.) are just pieces of technology that are designed to fit perfectly into a specific space. The reason is because the hardware itself is too big and unwieldy to fit into a small space. So instead, we have to design a smaller piece of hardware that fits perfectly into a specific space. This is where portable technology solutions come in.
