At the risk of sounding super-nosy....! :) I thought it would be fun (and interesting) to see what tech are your daily drivers or find their way into your satchels in the morning. You don't have to give a reason why, but if you feel like sharing--- go ahead! I'll start us off.

What's in my bag....
Surface Pro 2- 128gb with Power Cover
Surface 2- 32gb with cyan type cover 2
Nokia Lumia Icon
Nokia Red-Square external battery back-up

I carry two surfaces, the pro 2 and surface 2. The Pro2 is my business laptop and travels from my desk in the office, to the desk at home.

My surface 2 is the real workhorse... and goes with me as I make the rounds with patients. It's use primarily for word processing and the occasional presentation for patient's families. It may seem redundant to have both a pro2 and surface 2, but each has their niche.

My Icon... I just like the build quality. Yes, I am a fan of Nokia. No other reason for owning the phone.

So that's my 2 cents! What about you guys? What pieces of tech are you lugging around all day!?

lol!

I have my Lumia 920, which I use for most things, and my Surface 2.
Apart from that, I have a mini version of a first aid kit (plasters, bandages, antiseptic wipes), pens (I like pens), paper.. the list could go on and on...but I'll stop here as it was only to do with gadgets.

Most of the time I carry my Surface RT, L920, and Zune HD. Looking to replace both the RT and 920 with newer devices.

Well, I've got a Briefcase/satchel that can carry quite a bit. Glad it's got the shoulder strap.

It carries my Lenovo Flex 2-15 Laptop, portable 1TB USB 3.0 HDD, several USB flash drives (totaling over 150GB), Pens, stylus, assorted USB cables/adapters, Power cord/adapter for the laptop, wireless mouse for when I feel old school and don't use the touch screen (for mainly when I'm programming), files/folders, spare 5200mAh portable battery to charge my Lumia, Cleaning solution and cloth for my glasses and my touch screen, laser pointer, flashlight, etc.

When I want to go light, I just make sure the laptop is charged and take it by itself.

My Lumia 520 doesn't go in the satchel. It gets holstered to my hip for easy access.

No satchel here either but I always carry my Lumia 1520 and Dell Venue 8 Pro. The case for the DV8P has a pocket that has a mouse, USB adapter cable, micro-fiber cloth, a pen and headphones.

Oh, and a Gorilla Drive 16GB flash drive in my pocket.

No satchel, but I carry my Lumia 1520, Lenovo Z40, a 1TB external hardrive, and a 10,000 mAh EnerPlex Jumpr Slate 10K external battery to keep the Lumia charged.

Not a Smith & Wesson 4506 or a short barreled Remington 870?

Don't care for .45s because of the imbalance during mag cycling. I briefly had a Desert Eagle .44 AutoMag. THAT was a cannon.

I love this Ruger. 15 in the clip and you barely notice the difference between a full mag and your last shot. The 4-3/4" barrel helps.

I was just kidding. When you mentioned Miami, I thought of Crockett and Tubbs' gear from Miami Vice.

I missed that one. Hey, I didn't know, there's girls who like shooting. I see tons of them at the Dade County range and they're by themselves, not clinging to a boyfriend to impress. That's right, we got some baaaaad sistas down this way. Ever wonder why you don't hear about too many serial rapists on the news here? No means no or you get a 9mm vasectomy.
