Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Waterproof Your Phone and Tablet Before It’s Too Late!

The NACLNC® Conference cruise is just around the corner and I know many Certified Legal Nurse Consultants will be bringing not just family members, but something even more near and dear to your hearts with you – that’s right, it’s your smartphones and tablets.

Today’s blog is just a reminder to my CLNC® amigos that you’ll want to pack a waterproof case for each of your mobile devices. If you’re planning on taking any photos you may even want to get one for your camera.

When you’re in a rush, the quickest place to find a waterproof case for your legal nurse consulting gear is, you guessed it, your kitchen! Yes, those Ziploc® Freezer Bags do a pretty darn good job, and as an added advantage, are easy for even a spouse to use.

Try one today and pack a few for the cruise. You’ll need them on Adrenaline Beach in Haiti, poolside on the Oasis, at Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica and especially at Señor Frog’s in Cozumel when those margaritas start spilling (Arriba!).

Keep on techin’,


P.S. Comment here and share your favorite waterproof case.

  1. Sorry Tom, but I tried the baggie method about five years ago and the photos came out so blurry, they were no good. With the baggie off, photos were clear. Never tried it again. It’s definitely more expensive and a bit of a hassle, but I am going to buy a camera-specific waterproof case. Thanks, though; I usually benefit from your advice.

  2. Thanx for the comment. For cameras, I recommend the baggies ONLY for waterproof transportation = not for actual photo taking. They’ve kept my cameras dry everywhere from Zodiac boats in the Arctic and Antarctic to trekking in the rain in Torres del Paine. The real trick is not letting the baggie blow away when you go to take that quick photo of an Arctic Fox!

  3. Was that for real what I just read?! Did someone actually take photos with their camera in a plastic bag and expect them to come out clear? LOL! 🙂 Hope you all are having a great time on the 2013 NACLNC® Conference Cruise. Can’t wait for the next NACLNC® Conference. I miss the group!
