Best of 2012

From killing an 8 hour layover at an airport, to blocking out sounds while onboard a flight, to making sure you've got all your chargers for the myriad of devices you might be hauling here to there, there's plenty to worry about these days besides making sure you remembered toothpaste and matching socks!
