Poll Preview: On the Road Again -- Later in this issue, Jeff Carlson looks at some devices that make a Palm organizer more useful on the road. You'll have to read on to see if Jeff decides he can use his Palm in favor of his PowerBook, but we're curious what computing and communication devices you find the most useful when you're travelling. Whether you consider yourself a high-tech road warrior or a low-tech Luddite, tell us what you prefer to use on our home page! (For the purposes of this poll, consider yourself to be "travelling" whenever you're doing work away from your normal workplace - you don't have to go as far as Gideon Greenspan did in his Working off the Beaten Track articles!)
