Our laptops and mobile devices make it easy to take something fun with us wherever we go. Like to read? There is a Kindle app for your smartphone. Like to play board games? Do it online, with or without a partner. Like movies, music, photos, television shows, and crossword puzzles? Yep, all available online with a couple of clicks of the mouse. Like to gamble or play video games? Online casino games and a number of downloadable video games let you play any time of day or night.
For frequent travelers, all this digital media has made being mobile much easier and a lot less cluttered. We can view travel guidebooks, books, and magazines online, eliminating the need to haul around a heavy backpack. Skip fighting with unwieldy paper maps--Google Maps and other navigational devices let us find our way wherever we may roam.
Technology has made it easier to live in small spaces. Computers and mobile devices almost eliminate the need for DVD players, stereo systems, and video game players. With a digital flat-screen TV, high-quality speakers, and a laptop with remote keyboard and wireless mouse, a home entertainment center can tuck away into a small cabinet. Plus, there are essentially no wires to try to hide.
While many of us love paper books and magazine, they can become a source of serious clutter. Pare down print subscriptions and read magazines online. Readers can view the latest New York Times Bestseller on a Kindle or smartphone.
Finally, there are a number of yoga and pilates classes, and other workout regimens, available online. This makes it easy for those of us on the go to squeeze in a workout or relax after a long day, whether we're in a hotel room or in the comfort of our own home.
