This has been my first trip to CES. I had NO idea what to expect. Well, to quote the Greatful Dead, “what a long strange trip its been!”
When I was packing to come, I wasn’t sure what I was going to need, especially in the gear department. I consulted the all knowing Judie, and she gave me some helpful tips. I also tried to figure out what my own needs would be.
When I got here, I realized that I didn’t pack the one thing I was sure I was going to need, a spare battery for my T-Mobile G1. Oops. I was hoping I could find a way to stretch the battery life with a few tweaks, but I was sure by half way through a day, I was going to be DOA. Boy was I wrong!
With doing blog posts, checking email, Twitter tweets, Facebook updates, calendar updates, using Google maps and even making some phone calls, I wound up being able to have the battery last for 12 hours without a charge or needing to power off. And I didn’t have to tweak any of the battery saving settings. All hail HTC engineering and an awesome battery. With my old Blackberry, I could have never made it that long.
Now if only I could find a way to keep me charged for 12 hours so I can make it through the rest of CES….
