    So today's road warrior flies Southwest, stays at Hyatt Place, brings his/her own pillow, uses an iPad and a Thinkpad, has a droid for a phone, uses Scullcandy headphones, shops at The Limited and does yoga in Adidas shoes.

    Boy, I guess I'm not a road warrior, because the only thing I do on this list is have an iPad :)

    Anyways, fun contest even if winning 10 nights at a Hyatt Place and flying Southwest to get there doesn't sound very attractive to me

    Basically a Road warrior cannot make up his/her mind between Apple/Android or Apple/Microsoft...so they hedge and have both ;)

    Ha ha - well the Southwest and Hyatt Place part do describe my husband's business travels exactly. He does have an iPhone, if that counts. ;) He may rather eat a rat than go to The Limited or Yoga, but you never know!

    That's what he says - I think our "family trips" have spoiled him a little! Sorry babe, there is no Regency Club at the Hyatt Place.
    Still a cool contest though!

    This is going to be pretty hard for most people I know.....as they either have an Android phone or an iPad....but rarely ever both! ;)

    Just to clarify.....email entries are only for the weekly drawing of one free night at a Hyatt Place. For the main contest, you need to enter via Facebook and supply the requested content (as per SC's post in http://milepoint.com/forums/threads...s-diamond-thru-2-2013-plus.15191/#post-663822)

    If you count my Google TV, I have four Android devices (1 tablet, 2 phones, one TV). Plus one iPad and two iPhones. What do I win?

    Oh... not sure I want to like them on FB, though.
