Some technically savvy folks are taking “anytime, anyplace” computing a bit far.
At a nudist resort in Palm Springs, 80 percent of visitors bring laptops and do work in the buff using the poolside Wi-Fi, according to a ComputerWorld interview with the owner.
Among the tips for naked telecommuters:
Get a laptop with good screen resolution. Since Palm Springs is very sunny, we have seen guests with a towel over their head and laptop to cut down glare. Otherwise, you will be forced to work in the shade. Also don’t use a laptop at the edge of the pool while you are in the water. Laptops, a few cocktails and pool water do not mix, as we have seen a few times.
My suggestion for the undressed and unplugged: Make absolutely sure you’ve replaced any potentially explosive laptop batteries.
