...At least that's what FlightView says that our altitude is right now as I'm aboard Delta flight 2440 from Cincinnati (CVG) to Boston (BOS). I'm using the GoGo in-flight Internet service that Delta offers on nearly all their aircraft now, on my way home from a 3 day business trip to Nashville, TN.I've used the GoGo service before, but tonight, I actually have some work to do. Both follow-up from the meeting I'm returning from as well as catching up on things from time away from the office. Better to get the work done now, so I can spend some quality time with my family tomorrow, to make up for my absence.The service is very easy to connect to and mostly works as advertised. It can be a ... Last modified on Continue reading
I do a fair amount of business travel during the course of a year. Over time, Delta, JetBlue and Southwest have become my favorite airlines. Of those three, I've typically felt that JetBlue offered the best overall customer experience. The aircraft are relatively young and well appointed the their customer service has been on par with Southwest. Earlier this summer, my wife and I took a business trip together. We flew JetBlue from Boston to LAX and back. When we arrived at LAX, my wifes suitcase had been damaged. She had checked a standard sized piece of luggage with two outer zippered pockets. The upper of the two pockets had been badly damaged, having the zipper torn off du... Last modified on Continue reading
So this week, I attended the CompTIA Breakaway annual conference in San Anotonio, TX. What a fantastic event. Incredible educational content, a very impressive technology showcase and excellent networking with peers. It was also an exhausting week, as the days typically ran from 7:30 AM to well after midnight. Yes, there was some fun in the form of drinks at the bar and various receptions and "after parties", for anyone who thinks travel like this is glamorous, I just have to share this tale of fun... I left my home at 3:40 AM Monday morning to take the C&J coach from Portsmouth to Boston for a 7 AM flight in order to be sure I had no delay at security, which is typically very ...

Last modified on Continue readingIf you are like most people these days, especially mobile workers, you likely have a bag full of chargers that you cart around with you. This made me crazy years ago and I've dealt with the ever growing number of chargers I require by leveraging USB charging cables and most recently, investing in an iGo universal charger and the tips I need to keep everything powered up and charged. Even with that, I still carry both a USB battery and a unique battery based USB charger from Boxwave to insure I always have the power I need. Still, this means I'm also carrying around a bit of extra bulk and weight everywhere I go. My friend Tom Andrulis from Intelligent Technical Solutions in Las V...
Sometimes travel can be a pain, but technology is helping to ease that quite a bit. I'm currently out of town at a meeting and technology has certainly made the trip easier. I booked my flight online, printed my boarding pass at home and at the hotel, so I could walk right through the airport to the security checkpoint, saving precious time. Before leaving for the airport, I was easily able to check my flight status, and continue to do so on my smartphone en route. During the winter months, with the unpredictable weather of late, that's a very important piece of technology that helps avoid or deal with unexpected delays. I don't exactly love to travel on business, but when I ne... Last modified on Continue reading
