TECH B Y S U N N Y B AT E S Audio books “While traveling by car, I never listen to the radio. I’m working my way through The Great Courses from the Teaching Company. Right now, I’m listening to the fine arts and music canon, specifically the ‘Symphonies of Beethoven.’” Kindle “I read books on the Kindle and the iPad. I recently began following a vegan diet, so I am reading all the books written on the subject by John McDougall.” iPhone “Only for checking email on the road. I don’t use the phone, and no one has the number. If it rings, I don’t answer it.” TRAVEL GURU When he launched Priceline.com in 1998, Jay Walker changed the travel industry forever by allowing customers for the first time to name their own prices for airfares and hotel rooms. Though still his best-known startup, it is one of a multitude of enterprises launched by Walker, who started at the age of 9 by publishing his own newspaper, and is now listed among the most prolific living inventors. His companies range from online gaming to security and surveillance systems to education. A recent acquisition was the TEDMED Conference, which brings together scientists and doctors at the cutting edge of medicine. Walker’s wide-ranging interests are reflected in the library of his Connecticut home, which houses a collection so vast and unusual that a film has been made about it. He likes to leave home “as little as possible,” he says, but ensures that travel doesn’t interfere with his voracious appetite for learning new things. Yellow legal pads and pen “I do all of my thinking with a pen and paper … any paper will do, as will any pen. I love fine pens but lose them as quickly as I fall in love with them.” iPod “Massive amounts of music, including all of the Beatles, ’70s Motown, Eminem and Black Eyed Peas.” Magazines “When flying cross-country, I’ll take 50 to 100 pounds of magazines on the outbound flight and ship another 50 to 100 pounds of magazines to the destination for the return flight. For longer flights, such as to Singapore, I’ll travel with 100 to 120 pounds of magazines each leg of the flight.” iPad 4G LTE Find other high-tech gadgets perfect for travelers at . / O N H I S i PA D “I have a hundred or so apps on the iPad. I don’t actually use many of them, but as a marketer, I want to see what’s being done with apps and how people are using them.” Diptic Photogene Slice It! 1000+Lines You Gotta See This!
