Veronica often leaves her notebook at home when she's traveling, doing all her computing on an iPad. We gave her a Toshiba Thrive Android tablet to test out. Is this new 10 inch tablet, which packs HDMI output and an SD Card slot (take that, iPad!) too heavy, or just right?
We got a twitter question from @espen_f, who asks, "any sunglasses with screens on them so you can watch movies while relaxing on a plane?" Yes, but we're not sure these glasses can take the place of an 80 inch monitor!
More gadget questions from Twitter: @robinmilne wants "Tips to use 'maps' on an iPhone while driving solo? It's dangerous!" We'd rather you used something like Navigon MobileNavigator or MotionX GPS Drive if you'e solo... but we've got ideas for safer Google Maps usage in the video!
@Grif_E: tweets "Tips on cleaning the seams and such of my devices of sand/dust/random gunk that only ever gets there when I travel." Get the Isopropyl Alcohol and a spudger, we're all over this one! We've got ideas for keeping your gear clean, too!
@Killamator: tweets, "@Tekzilla is it ok to use bluetooth on a plane?" We wouldn't tell you to violate US federal regulations... but people are using WiFI on planes now, aren't they? Watch the video!
