Especially Petra. For us, that blow-us-away, rose-red city was the highlight. Seeing the desert of Wadi Rum (Lawrence of Ariabia’s stomping grounds) was also a hit.

Comment on Acer Iconia Tab 8 Review: Can It Really Handle a Life of Travel? by Randy Kalphttp://beersandbeans.com/2014/09/16/acer-iconia-tab-8-review/#comment-56097 Fri, 10 Oct 2014 17:06:40 +0000 http://beersandbeans.com/?p=20125#comment-56097 Oh man, nothing frustrates me more than tech that doesn’t work how it’s supposed too. Your not the first I’ve heard complain about the RT. With that said, the Pro is definitely a different beast and one that I think would be worthy of blogging on the road. If I had to chose between and Air and RT, though, I’m still now sure which route I’d go. There’s aspects I like about both. The good thing is that whichever way you go, I’m pretty sure you’ll be satisfied, as they’re both great devices.

I think the Surface Pro is an awesome option. I’ve had my eye on it for sometime too.

Here’s a list of apps that I find useful for working on the road: http://beersandbeans.com/2014/09/30/essential-android-apps/. In terms of the iPad, it just depends what you really want to do. Because the iPad doesn’t give you access to files on your device, nor does have it have expandable memory, such as a micro-SD slot. With that said, it’s never been easier to access documents and photos from the cloud, so technically, this is a work around to not having direct access to your device files, as long as you’re going to be able to connect WiFi. I’m not sure about the HP, but I’d imagine it’s probably running Android. Thanks for the tip about Snag It, I’ve tried others like that app, but they didn’ work either. However, I’ll give it a try. I did discover that I can take a screenshot by using my Bluetooth keyboard.

It’s the easiest way I’ve found to organize clips and story ideas across all of my devices.

I’ve had my eye on it for a while now, but will likely wait now that I have the Tab 8. So, are they now making the Surface Pro dual boot with Windows/Android? I saw an Asus 2-n-1 running the dual boot at CES earlier this year, but haven’t heard much about them since them. I love the idea of dual boot, so hopefully that will become popular in the future.

We’ve always used it on our iPhone, so it’s nice to have the same photo editing functionality on our tablet too.

Comment on Helsinki and the Flow Festival in 12 Snaps by Randy Kalphttp://beersandbeans.com/2014/10/01/instagram-helsinki-guide/#comment-56089 Fri, 10 Oct 2014 16:13:13 +0000 http://beersandbeans.com/?p=20176#comment-56089 Yep, I feel you on that one. Despite the cost, it’s definitely doable for a weekend trip or stop over if you’re on a budget. Also keep in mind that Finland gets a little cheaper when you get outside of Helsinki.

We really enjoyed Finland a lot, and really only scratched the surface. There is a ton to explore and the trains make traveling around the country easy. I’ve heard the islands off the western coast our pretty incredible and, of course, then you have the Northern Lights and Lapland in the north. When you do go to Helsinki, definitely plan a day around the fortress, it’s a fun day trip and there is a lot to see and explore.
