Dear CNET members,
When I'm traveling, whether it's a quick family road trip or an agonizing 12-hour flight overseas, you can bet I bring along my gadgets--not only to make my travel time more enjoyable but also in preparation for the worst (pointing at my 3-year-old son). Are you prepared? If not, let me introduce you to our new Go Mobile destination on CNET.com. Go Mobile offers comprehensive guides, tools, and advice on portable technology. While we've provided a lot of information, from travel tips to making the most of your mobile gear, we also turn to you, the CNET community, for advice. I'm sure many of you have had great travel adventures, so swing on by and share your insights, experiences, and tips. The more we share, the merrier we are. This brand-spanking-new area is way cool, but don't let me be the only one to judge it. Check it out for yourself. Read up, learn something new, and be one of the first to offer your knowledge. Enjoy!
