Today a lot of people buy digital SLR since they go for the excellent quality of the images, yet you will see them just using the stock lens, set it on auto, and shoot pictures. If this is the case, then all you might need is a compact digital camera.

Things to do before the trip
Activate the “Data Global Add on” option. This turns on your cell phone’s roaming plan, letting you receive data even while you’re abroad. One of the cheapest package today is $24.99 a month, letting you receive up to 20MB of data. If you are not based in the U.S., please contact your service provider on how you can turn on this option.
Safeguarding your important documents is a must and making copies of the originals is a great idea. But carrying them with you in a small “drive” might not be such a good idea. Even if these drives come with hardcore password-ing features, they are yey small and could easily slip out of your luggage when you’re traveling around the world. Worse, you could forget when you keep them.
The Travel Stix USB drive is both a 2GB/4GB USB drive, small enough to fit your wallet and big enough to store your emergency travel documents. How it works: You print out the emergency travel documents that come inside. Some might require the aid of a notary public, but just the same, you sign all of them. You scan these documents and keep them in the Travel Stix USB and they’re ready to go with you everywhere you go. Think of it like an iPod that is filled with the world’s best songs but these documents are actually about your identity.
Saudi Arabia told telecoms companies that they will be banning the messenger functions of Blackberry smart phones last Friday, July 30, 2010. This was right after the United Arab Emirates reported security concerns which could compromise the nation’s security.
It is no secret that internet access in these areas is very stringent. Recently, the UAE government expressed concern that it was unable to monitor online communications between the devices within UAE and Saudi Arabia, and those outside it. The government out security requirements to telecoms firms, but they refused to detail these requirements to the press.
According to the government, any further details may compromise sensitive information, so they’re keeping their lips sealed. For now, both countries are banning internet browsing, messenger functions and email access from the smartphone devices. The ban will last until the firms agree to their security conditions.
