Netflix on the road is a great thing. Anywhere I have a cell phone signal, I can use Netflix. No need to tote along a bunch of DVDs or watch TV with it’s many commercials. How you ask? Well, my Samsung Infuse cell phone has an unlimited data plan so it doesn’t cost me extra to watch Netflix. The phone came with an HDMI adapter that plugs into the phone and then to the TV. Anything that is on the phone is instantaneously transferred to the TV. I open my Netflix app and choose the TV show or movie I want to watch, plug in the HDMI cable and BAM… I am entertained.
This next gadget is the coolest (pun intended) thing to ever be invented. It’s a portable ice maker made by Emerson. As I remember, we got it on sale at Target for around $100. In a very short amount of time, this little beauty can make a whole bunch of ice. And, who doesn’t like lots of ice in their drink?! So, I’m sitting here having a vodka & ginger ale (with fresh ice!) and watching a movie on Netflix. How’s that for “roughing it”?
Ice Ice Baby!
