Getting ready for vacation, but not quite ready to cut your digital umbilicus to the outside world? Can’t say I blame you; so much of our lives–work, social, whatever–depend on being online. Fortunately, with wireless devices and wifi and all that fun stuff, you’re never not online if you choose not to be. Lifehacker has a guide to getting your gadgets ready for summer, including tips for cleaning out sand, ways to dry out wet devices, ways to protect your devices from the sun and rain, and even tips on how to get the most mileage out of your electronics while outdoors.
