New Year Travel nAnD Gadgets

As this started from something to write desire, this post has stayed in drafts more than ever and today i am giving it a new status (read Posted)!!!!

This has already gone through many changes while i still feel,  it has nothing to do with title but endure with me and lets see how it goes........

So all my tickets are booked (can't reveal the dates, its a short and surprise trip) for 2009 new year trip from Pune >> Delhi >> Jalandhar and return via this same default route:-). Scary part left is spine-chilling, shivery and foggy weather in northern part of country which slims the visibility to almost zero during this season and what to do while i am traveling....?

Idea is to enjoy the cold weather and flaunt my winter collection which was rendered useless since i moved to Pune. And Carry my travel gadgets apart from mobiles to make traveling fun and learning experience.
Always wonder what could have been traveling without them....! Here comes mine Nokia N800 Internet Tablet, Sandisk Sansa Express MP3 player , they are almost like quondam with new Nokia N810 WiMax edition and some really cool sansa players in the market but what makes me wonder is how people enjoy their i-stuff and let them i-tune their music library.......?

I believe everyone looks for easy solution.. still these (ipod's) are such a big craze and considered the coolest gadget by our i-generation (i= Internet) but what they do if they just want to copy a song they like from their friend machine....? Do they Sync their play list again....? or carry an extra USB drive...? Heyyy, what about drag & drop... don't you guys miss that.....? Mine tiny mp3 player does that, support FM and record music. Ohhh, did i mention that it supports Micro-SD card slot for expansion too.

Wish i could explicate how good it to see the video on the wide screen of N800 with all the possible codec support and never ever to worry about the conversion. Connect via USB, simply drag DVD-rip's into N800 and enjoy the movie on the go; phenomenal..!! compared to what my friends have to do, for the same on their I-Pod's. I know its a never ending argument but here are my argues for going with N800
  • Wi-Fi, Blue tooth
  • Linux OS, Maemo community support      
  • Inbuilt speaker, FM Radio
  • Mozilla powered browser, tons of applications, gaming 
  • Touchscreen, wide screen and Canola takes its multimedia capabilities to all new degree.
With 2 SD-card slots each supporting up to 16GB, memory is never a concern. Never felt exhausted with 16GB space, all I have to do is think of the application i need :-)

Never played with Mac Book though and will love to do so but what daunts is... what if it turns out to be mere physical attraction then any geeky soul relation....?

I love my gadgets: notebook, mp3 player, N800 Internet Tablet (though i miss open Wi-Fi connections in India) for what they are and performs what i exactly paid for.... It's a Love relationship now!!!! Wait wait wait wait where all this is going....? I should be packing my stuff rather than making my love public :-). Time to copy the songs/movies friends... Catch u all soon and 

Wishing you all very HAPPY & Prosperous NEW YEAR ahead....!
