Welcome to the November issue of ATPM. This issue includes:
Mac About Town: On the Road Again
If you are a laptop user and a traveler, odds are that you have a collection of items you carry with you on trips. Mike Chamberlain spent five weeks in Europe this summer, and shares some insights on what to take (and what not to take) when traveling light.
