People just won't carry a laptop, cell phone AND a PDA and an iPod.
Actually, not only will they, they do!
Two trips back, I carried a cell phone in my left pocket, plane tickets in my left cargo pocket, wallet in my right pocket, A laptop over my shoulder, A 5 Mpx digital camera,and two calculators in my bag. This time I left the graphing calc behind.
I see guys with exactly the list you mentioned--routinely--in the airport, on the plane etc. A good number now have the PDA/cellphone merged and the calculator is gone, but the ipod and the laptop still travel. The ipod is tiny, and the laptop is huge. They are for such different purposes.
What is the last thing I bring, only if I really need it?
The laptop. I leave it home as often as possible.
