Geek Out: Where Won't You Whip Out Your Laptop?

Geek Out: Where Won't You Whip Out Your Laptop?

In the movie Motherhood, which opens today, Uma Thurman plays a multitasking stay-at-home mom trying to raise two kiddos and keep up her passion for writing. Her busy schedule of feedings, cleaning, meal making, and party planning means she has to sneak short moments of computer time in wherever she can. She blogs in 10-minute increments at her desk while baby plays, at the playground, and even in the stairwell of her building.

I'm not a mom, but I can relate to whipping out my laptop in usual places (you know, the car, the laundromat, the camping ground) in order to get work finished and stay connected. Where won't I blog or log on? The bathroom. Unlike Brooke Shields' character on Lipstick Jungle, the idea of bringing my Mac to the powder room makes me cringe. Where is your no-tech zone?

I would love to say my tech doesn't go to the bathroom with me,but I am guilty of attending a conference call in the bathroom (I had the mute button on), and taking my Kindle to the bath tub.

My phone and laptop go almost everywhere with me, except so far the bathroom, too germy.

I'm worried I don't have a no-go zone. I don't think I've brought my laptop in the bathroom with me, but whenever I take a bath I prop my BlackBerry on the tile above it to watch my email. I really should stop that.

I wouldn't take my tech to the bathroom..bc then I'd be freaked out about germs. Otherwise, my iPhone goes with me almost everywhere
