Why I Carry This Stuff?

I have found that when I visit a hotel or go to the office, there are times when I need some widget or another to fix a problem. I have found that it is a lot faster to pull out a widget from my bag and use it temporarily than it is to go to the store. I use my Fiva to update my website and retrieve e-mail.  I use the Pocket PCs for their PIMs and I test apps and hardware on them.  So now you know more about what I carry around.  I think it may help some of you decide what you may need in your bag of tricks along with your Pocket PC!
