The beginning of August is a sure sign that the return to school is right around the corner for millions of teens and young adults. Families may still be in full vacation mode, but the days are already getting shorter and the countdown to Labor Day is on.
With retailers shifting gears to promote school- and fall-related items, one thing is abundantly clear: going back-to-school is a little more “high tech” these days than it was 15 or 20 years ago. Rather than loading up on pens, pencils, and three-ring notebooks only, today’s students need to factor in ways to organize and safely transport their expensive gear and irreplaceable data to and from school and between classes.
Whether middle school, high school, or college-age, today’s students (and their parents) have a lot invested in laptops, mobile devices, gaming systems, chargers, and various other tech and accessories. Failing to ensure the safety of that gear with a high quality carrying case or backpack should never happen, but it does.
Mobile Edge strives to educate students, travelers, and parents buying for students about the prudence of protecting their expensive hardware and data. Compared to the value of what’s inside, carrying cases and backpacks are relatively inexpensive, while losing gear and irreplaceable data to an unfortunate accident can be catastrophic to a student’s academic success.
