At best, you’ll get a local SIM with a hard data cap, or you could arrive prepared with a Skyroam Global WiFi…

Isn’t it aggravating when you’re working on something important, the power goes out, and you lose your laptop’s internet connectivity?

We both have the Harman Kardon Soho Wireless Headphones and I absolutely love mine. She does too. Here’s a look.

The previous model (the DSL-2890AL) had a glossy black finish, which may look flashy for a few seconds before attracting copious amounts of dust and scratching beyond belief.
