She’s a wizard when it comes to wireless– Cellular Chloe is here to share the latest and greatest wireless wonders!
Are you getting ready to hit the road for a Summer vacation? Chloe has some vacation tips for you to make sure your apps and gadgets enhance your trip, instead of taking over your time away.
1. Stay Off Facebook!
It’s tempting to use Facebook to document every last second of your vacation, but you might miss something special with your eyes glued to your phone or tablet 24/7. On top of that, advertising that you’re away from your home for an extended period of time could open you up to break ins, and nobody wants that.
2. Watch Your House
You can keep an eye on your home while you’re away with a variety of methods, all of which connect straight to your phone. The Switcher will automatically turn your lights on and off, and will only cost you about $40-50. There’s also cameras which will feed straight to your phone, which cost about $100, a small price to pay for peace of mind.
3. Bring Some Power with You
If you’re going on vacation, you will likely bring a tablet, an e-reader or a smart phone, so you don’t want to forget to bring power to keep them all charged. Instead of having to bring a mess of wires and plugs, you can get the Outlet To Go, which has both a wall and car plug built in. Most plugs today just use a cable, so it’s easy enough to carry something for the car and something for the wall, but Outlet To Go does it all in one. There’s also power banks so you can keep charged when you’re out having fun, or on the beach. The Juice Bar is a great example.
4. Use The Clouds To Keep Your Info Close
If you’re going on a plane, keep your ticket in the Cloud instead of email, so you can find it quickly. You can store everything from hotel and car reservations, to prescriptions right in the Cloud so you have access on the go. That way, just in case you misplace any vital things you will need, you have a virtual copy at your fingertips.
