Gotta love those gadgets! I was in Tempe, Arizona this weekend, attending a conference and awards ceremony, along with 300 other chiropractors. When headed out to chiropractic events I typically travel with at least one laptop, a digital camera, maybe a video camera, MP3 player, PDA, some power bricks, and a handful of various USB cables. It’s a wonder I manage to bring any clothing along. I’m not the only one that likes to travel with gadgets as I witnessed several chiropractors attending the event with laptops and other electronics in hand.
I snapped this photo on Saturday afternoon. California chiropractor Russell Kun and Dr. Carl Rafey, a Cincinnati chiropractor (state of Ohio) were gabbing during a break about the many great features of their iPhones. I’m pretty sure they purchased their phones so they could keep up-to-date on the latest mobile RSS feeds for our chiropractic classifieds, but I suspect they like some other features as well.
Dr. Russell’s been really excited about the number of photographs he can display on his phone, and both chiropractors have young children, so you can imagine there are lots of photos of babies being shown by these two. I’d possibly have an iPhone myself but service for AT&T has been so horrible for me in the past (in the Marina del Rey area), I don’t think I could handle the dropouts.
For now, I’ll just have to take pictures of my friends that have cooler gadgets than I do.
