The following post is by Leticia Barr, a parent, former educator and blogger who originally wrote this for her TechSavvyMama.com site.
Last week I attended CES, the Super Bowl of technology trade shows, armed with gadgets that I worried about losing in the two million square feet of exhibit space occupied by 3,200 exhibitors and 150,000 other attendees. With all the hustle and bustle, it would be way too easy for me to lose or misplace my devices I constantly relied on to share the things I was seeing with my readers and followers, ensure that I didn’t miss appointments, and document what I was experiencing for future posts. I knew if I set my iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Lenovo Yoga Tablet, or Samsung NX300 camera down while talking to an exhibitor during my travels it would be fairly impossible for me to find them again, even if I were to retrace my steps.
Even if you’re not attending a trade show, the regular hustle and bustle of life puts our devices at risk for being lost or stolen constantly. Between kids, the mall, the coffee shop, the grocery store, and restaurants, there are a lot of places to leave your phone, have it stolen, or experience the crazy that happens as cell phone owners.
