The 2009 Nomad Packing List

Our most popular Life Nomadic article last year was our complete packing list. Since then we've learned a lot, made a lot of changes, and managed to pack a lot more into the same tiny amount of space.

There are a few areas where slight improvement could be made, which you'll hear me talk about in the video, but overall this collection of stuff represents everything a traveler needs to travel through just about anywhere on the planet, live comfortably, and keep connected.

I've consolidated most of the stuff I pack into an Amazon store, which you can access here: Life Nomadic Store. If you use that link, or the Amazon links below, I get a commission. Other good places to buy this sort of gear are ebay and outdoor shops like REI and MEC, although neither store carries most of the gear.

4K Netflix Streaming will begin in January

On Imported Blog

After months and months of speculation, Netflix finally announced that they will begin 4K streaming this month. This means you will be able to watch clear Ultra HD movies and TV shows next month, with the only thing you need to worry about being your internet plan.

There are a few catches though, with one of them being that only select manufacturers will be getting access to Netflix's 4K streams. These manufacturers will announce what TV's will be compatible with this at CES 2014, set to kick off tomorrow.

Netflix also noted that the PS4 and Xbox One would be introduced to 4K streaming "eventually."

Another issue is the lack of 4K content at the moment. The only show that is available in 4K right now is Netflix' own House of Cards.
