My must-have tech tools for my trip today to Tallahassee

in Uncategorized by

Am about to jump on a puddle-jumper to Tallahassee for thirty-six hours of meetings and to take part in the Florida Chamber’s Capitol Days and the aerospace industry’s Space Day.

Among the tech tools I am bringing with me are three must-haves.

The first is the Breeze Fan from Brookstone. This quality roller point pen includes a battery-powered fan that cools at the touch of a button. The finger-safe fan is quiet yet surprisingly effective—perfect for professionals on the road, or anyone who simply enjoys a little portable air conditioning.  This item is not yet endorsed by Charlie Crist, but it should be.

The second item is the Spy Gear Micro Agent Listener. Clip this secret listening device to your ear and extend the mini microphone around corners and over obstacles — especially on the Fourth Floor Rotunda of the Florida Capitol.

And the third item is the HD Video Pen, also from Brookstone. This allows you to capture everyday moments as you take notes, doodle or huddle with a legislator for an off-the-record conversation (of course, recording a conversation without someone’s consent is illegal, right?). The HD Vide Pen records full-color video with audio in AVI video format and replays it in 720 x 480 resolution on your computer or mobile device via USB connection.

Well, I have to catch my plane. See you all in the 850.
