This is Kaya's
nice and stylish 500Mhz Apple workbook that we brought along. We
are not quite sure how the screen broke. Although it seems to work
fine, we were scared that the screen might fail completely ....
This is the
blurry mug shot of Kaya's digital camera. A Canon 3.3 Megapixel
camera with a 330MB Microdrive.
cellphone was our main means of connecting so far. Although data
rates are really low at 9.8kbit, nearly all larger asian cities
have a GSM network. With per minute prizes of up to $7 for national
calls to an ISP from a hotelroom, we often preferred the cellular
low data rate over the the expensive land line.
Most often with
land lines we just use the accoustic couppler instead of fumbling
with the wires, which limits connection speed to 28.8kbit. Really
great and useful device. It allows us to connect from a phone booth
... which is
why we took aboard Sami's Apple iBook in Istanbul
And here is
the Sony MiniDV camera that we use for video. It connects nicely
for video editing over firewire cabling to the workbook.
If we connect
using a land line, we are very well equipped to connect to pretty
much any socket in the world.
And of course
we have a full bag of power adaptors, battery chargers, conversion
plugs, backup disks, random cables, etc.
