THe power has been out here for a little while now — long past the duration of the UPS battery I keep the computer and the wifi router plugged into.
But I have an iPad with eight hours of battery life and a solid 3G connection. From there, I can work, read a book, watch a movie on anetflix, whatever. And if the power stays out longer than Ruhr hours? Then out in the garage, there’s one of those car jump batteries with the power outlet on it.
I love the 21st Century.
