It's the final day of the Luggage-Free challenge, and I've hit Adelaide. This video highlights a common problem I've experienced: a lack of power outlets near the bed.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


There are contexts where 4G speed is nice to have, and contexts where it is essential. The Luggage-Free experiment definitely falls into the latter camp.


It's hump day and I've travelled from Melbourne to Brisbane. Working on the road using only a phone means apps are vitally important. Here are the BlackBerry 10 ones I've found most helpful so far, and the handful that have been a hindrance.


Two days in, I haven't experienced any showstopping issues on the Luggage-Free journey, beyond a mild Wi-Fi shortage in Auckland. But equally I haven't yet developed a working rhythm that makes me think working solely on my phone  would be completely  sustainable in the long term.


The obvious  annoyance with going from Australia to New Zealand ? Leaving at lunch and arriving for a late dinner. But that and poor Wi-Fi aside, Day 1 of Luggage-Free is largely  going well.


Keeping luggage to a minimum is the goal of many business travellers, but how far can you take it? Can you work on the road for long periods without a computer and a spare pair of shoes? We're about to find out. Next week I'm taking on the Luggage-Free challenge, travelling to a new city in the region every day and trying to do my regular job as Lifehacker editor armed only with a BlackBerry Z10 and without any meaningful luggage.
