Even though my job is driven and enabled by technology, I’m definitely no expert when it comes to understanding the latest and greatest innovations. But travel tech is important for all travelers to know more about, no matter your style of travel. Whether it’s avoiding excessive cell phone sarges, finding and using apps to make the travel experience ease or what gadgets are actually worth the money, there’s a lot to keep in mind. To help us better understand what is and is not important, this week I interviewed Dave Dean, founder of the travel tech web site Too Many Adapters, to share his top tips and recommendations.
