Gear we can't live without
Four veteran business travelers share their favorite tools for staying productive on the road.
SAN FRANCISCO (Business 2.0 Magazine) - Sometimes the most useful gear isn't the newest.
For instance, JetBlue (Research) CEO David Neeleman crunches numbers on a Casio calculator-watch from the '80s, while Bell Labs' Peter Benedict swears by a discontinued MP3 player from iRiver, which is available for just $140 on eBay (Research).
Still, there's always something to be said for the cutting edge. The latest Logitech (Research) webcam keeps Expedia (Research) CEO Dara Khosrowshahi in touch with his family on the road, while tech consultant Nathan Carpenter relies on an Internet-connected glass orb that glows red or green to tell him how his software tests are going.
After all, what really makes tech special isn't the laundry list of features a gadget may have, but the smart way you use it.click here.
