I have been reading the Geeks on Tour blog for nearly a year. It is aimed at folks who live in recreational vehicles (RVs), either full-time or part-time. The couple that write the blog, Chris and Jim Guld, specialize in "computer training for travelers." I was pleasantly surprised to find an article by Chris Guld entitled, Picasa and a Cell Phone are Genealogist’s Tools.
Chris writes, "My cell phone is always with me and I find myself using the camera feature more and more because of that simple fact. Any time I’m at family’s homes and I see a photo on the wall, or in a photo album, I simply take out my Motorola Droid cellphone and I snap a photo. When I get home, I transfer that photo to my computer and view it with Picasa."
Topics in the article include:
Taking Pictures of Pictures
Take Pictures of Letters
Take Pictures of Newspaper Clippings
Adding Captions and Dates
Pictures of Books

While there, RV owners will probably be interested in some of the other articles in the Geeks on Tour blog. I suggest you poke around a bit to see what appeals to you at http://geeksontour.tv/.
