My bundled contract with Comcast/Xfinity is up (yes, I realize that wasn't smart). My transition towards something different will be with my future lifestyle in mind. That lifestyle will involve hiking around the world (I'm near retirement age, an accomplished hiker and my spouse will soon pass away from Alzheimer's). Here are my thoughts towards what I should do; I would like any feedback to steer me towards the best path. Needs: Photo, audio and video recording Work station for office, GIS/GPS, sound, video and photo (I currently use the freebies Open Office, Audacity, Microsoft movie and Photoscape, respectively and am quite satisfied; I used to be a GIS Manager so I can learn to use anything there) Play station (for WoW would be ideal, but some of the play apps will do) Talk, text and data Lightweight and cheap but satisfactory configuration Anticipated gear: Camera - unless the phone can do one hell of a job. I use photography for slideshows I give on speaking engagements and need great photos. Not $10,000 for digital equipment great, I'm not selling prints, but I'm an experienced photographer that does not want my creativity stymied. Convertible computer - I think that's the term. Can serve as both a computer work station and play tablet. Mobile broadband device - From what I hear, faster and less expensive than using a phone for a wifi hot spot. GPS device - From what I hear, cheaper than using a cell phone as a GPS device. Cell phone? - May not be necessary if get GPS elsewhere and the computer/tablet satisfies talk, text and data needs, but redundancy is not a bad thing. Really appreciate feedback on this. Thanks in advance!
