Recently, I purchased a Surface Go 3 tablet after seeing a peer using a tablet. I have to say this is a game changer. Because it runs on windows I can access any of the websites a regular computer can access and even use the Microsoft Army 365 suite online. I can log into my OneDrive at my fingertips. The case has a built in CAC reader that makes logging into military sites so easy. I even made this post with it.

What Tech had you used to mage your life more productive or easier.

CPT (Join to see) The An-Prc-25 Radio kept us in communication when we needed to coordinate our efforts or needed help. As long as it was kept clean, the radio worked good except for the handsets. I always carried an extra battery, handset, a brush, and plastic for the handset. The whip antenna could be an issue, so the tape antenna was used as much as possible.

in 2003 when we moved from Camp Virginia to Balad, Iraq, we first used a GPS navigation system. I still had a map, but the convoy leader used the GPS, had way points logged in. It was great. Also I had a Dell laptop issued to me which worked flawless, except for the "A" drive which the floppy discs were effected by the sand and grit, so a little thing called a USB stick was issued. They were big, 128mgb., but they were great for transfer of files .

The first personnel action I input in 1994 was on a TACCS.
The most recent one I did from my phone.

But if we're talking about any tech that made Army-ing easier:
Back in the old AN/PSN-11 (PLGR) days, I used a Garmin Geko or eTrex Vista, both were at least 10x faster.
And do I enjoy being able to do anything CAC-enabled (except for ATRRS and MOBCOP) on a Linux laptop rather than booting Windoze, thanks to the gang at militarycac.com.

I remember the PLGR. The military is getting a lot better with technology but I still think it's a little bit behind our civilian counterparts. I like that the Army let's us use phone or t tablet now.
