Black Fridays (which is always near my birthday) have always been opportunities to upgrade our gadgets. In 2010 Bill gave me with a high power, lightweight (3 lbs) 13-inch Toshiba Protégé laptop. In 2011 I gave him a 5-inch and lifetime map update Garmin GPS. He gave me a new combination microwave/oven/crisper and a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, a smartphone with mobile Hotspot. And we gave ourselves the connection for our DirectTV satellite In-Motion dish. This year Bill got me a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is a 5.5 inch smartphone (and he gets the Nexus) and Trish, my eldest daughter and her husband Deejay got me a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 for my birthday/Christmas gifts (Bill gets the Protégé then!).

RV Technology Gizmos
Our home on wheels also requires lots of special technology! We utilize systems that are mostly satellite-based so that things can still be operable wherever we may end up. There are also usually different kinds of systems available for different kinds of situations. And the devices are usually more compact than those we use in regular homes.
