All three descriptions apply to Anil Polat, my friend and the guy behind Foxnomad.com.
Anil has established himself amongst travel bloggers as the go-to guy for technical advice. I've gone to him privately on several occasions for help when I've been unable to resolve an issue with this blog.
His latest eBook, The Ultimate Tech Guide for Travelers, is the product of a computer security specialist who wants to save his fellow travelers time and energy. Even before he offered to send me a copy for review, I was thinking about buying it because I know I can trust his advice.
A variety of topics are covered, including:
- Strategies for backing up photos and computer files.
- How to use proxies to get around countries that ban certain websites.
- Finding free software for photo editing and learning languages.
- Tips to improve your wi-fi connectivity.
- The last chapter is dedicated to some really cool hacking tips.
When I initially opened the eBook, I thought it'd be a quick read, but an hour later, I was still working my way through the material. Anil includes links to all of the software programs and resources he recommends, most of which are free. Trusting that he's pointing you in the right direction is a big time saver in and of itself.
The real value in The Ultimate Tech Guide for Travelers is not the 40 pages of easy-to-understand guidance, it's in taking action to implement the advice. And yes, that will require you set aside some time.
If installing software intimidates you, that's where Anil re-enters the picture. He's offering 6 months of personal support to anyone who buys the book! So if the do-it-yourself approach makes you nervous, you've got the free, patient, and personalized tech support of the author to fall back on.
In addition, he's offering one year of free updates to anyone who purchases the eBook. So unlike buying the latest laptop only to have a better model released a few months later, you can pick up The Ultimate Tech Guide for Travelers and feel confident that you'll benefit from additional information added within the first year.
The Ultimate Tech Guide for Travelers is currently available for $37.
