Great article in the New York Times today on how hotels & airports are starting to “get” the mobile tech needs of their customers. New services include tech support, WiFi, electrical charging stations, even lap desks in hotel rooms. John Wolf from Marriott discusses why you’ll start seeing moveable desks in some of the chain’s hotels: ““When we tested our new bedding, we discovered people were taking the decorative pillows and they were using them to essentially nestle in and pull out their laptop…they were using the pillows to create a desk.” Yup, Mr. Wolf, been there and done that! Any chance the Las Vegas hotels will read this and make changes before CES?Have you seen any changes for the betterment of the mobile tech consumer?

  1. Hello Guys:
    I’m a big fan of your site! I am the inventor/producer of the new Deskinacar Product available widely on the web in January-February 2008 pending receipt of our first inventory.

    The product is a super portable car desk that doubles as a laptop lap desk. A great combo for the Road Warrior. This product will weight less than four pounds and will stow in a 17″ laptop case. The desk is made of polycarbonate and will be very durable for the road. Deskinacar while extended is 22″x16 3/4″ and folded is 11″x16 3/4″x1″.

    I would welcome and appreciate a review from your distinguished blog!
