By Kate - Funky, Chic and Cool Laptop Bags on Squidoo.com Geek Girls, Go Retro with Your Laptop Bag! I grew up smack dab in the middle of the Bible Belt. Consequently, I spent a lot of time at church, listening to evangelical preachers exhorting sinners to join the flock. One of the most common motivational questions I heard was "Do you know that you know that if you died tonight you'd go to heaven and meet Jesus?" I always thought this was a pretty good motivator - a little fear, a little hope and the promise of schmoozing with one of the biggest celebrities around. What does this have to do with cool laptop bags? Well, two decades later and I still don't know if I'd go to heaven, BUT, I know what laptop bag I'd take with me to meet Jesus. And that bag, my friends, is the Maddie Powers
(CBS) October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a time for us to celebrate our friends and family who are breast cancer survivors and to remember and mourn those no longer with us. It's a time to renew our energy to fight this cruel disease and to focus our efforts to support the researchers and physicians who are working for a cure. There are people however, for whom awareness of breast cancer is a 12-month-long commitment. These are the men and women who help raise money for research, help patients who are fighting the disease and help educate women young and old about early detection and treatment. For the past four years, The Early Show has done a special series, Pink for a Week, that puts the spotlight on the

Caring Globally, Acting Locally Another great turn out at this year’s Orange County Komen Race for the Cure. The Mobile Edge Team was there in full force showing their support for the Komen Foundation and to help the cause in finding a cure for breast cancer! More than 35,000 people attended this year’s race and it always is a wonderful event to be a part of. I had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of local people who share the same cause, and they really liked our Pink-themed laptop bags. I have to admit, seeing t-shirts that say I’m doing this for my mom always makes me well up. My step-mom too is a breast cancer survivor. For Mobile Edge, this is our fourth year as a corporate partner with the Susan G. Komen for the
By: Sarah Meyer of NotebookReview.com The Mobile Edge Express Backpack is a recent addition to the lineup from a company known for making solid, affordable notebook bags and cases. At first glance, the Express Backpack has a sporty look and a ton of pockets. On the outside alone it has five pockets plus the main compartment. But is there anything underneath the flashy exterior of the Express? I decided to see if this backpack would really protect a laptop and provide plenty of room for books, or if it was all show, no substance. The Express Backpack Specifications Dimensions: 20" x 16" x 8.5" Compartment Dimensions: 13.2" L x 11.7" H x 1.9" W Weight: 2.65 lbs. Heavy-duty Duraflex fittings Ergonomic Cool-Mesh ventilated back panel Reflective safety material Dedicated media pocket w/ headphone port Lifetime replacement warranty Design and Aesthetics The outside of my Express Backpack definitely looks good in a
Evan Ackerman over at OhGizmo just got finished playing with a couple our backpacks for a few weeks. Here is little bit of what he had to say: Now, here's the part I was most impressed with: this thing has a lot of padding. Like, seriously, a lot. The shoulder straps are padded all the way down, the back is entirely padded (except for some stitching which allows air to circulate nicely), and there's even some sort of padding inside the rest (sides and front) of the shell. I feel like I could get whacked between the shoulder blades with a baseball bat and not only would I not feel a thing, neither would my laptop. Well, maybe that's a bit extreme, but it certainly makes a comfortable pillow when you're on the road.
Satsuki from Slashgear just recently posted her review of The Monaco and we are happy to say it received one of her highest ratings. Here is a quick excerpt from the review: The quilted MicroFiber exterior is very elegant but still cute enough to have youth appeal. Meanwhile, the interior is lined with rich poly-suede, so it both looks and feels good. The Monaco bag holds notebooks with up to 15.4? screens and is not too heavy, in fact it only weighs around 2.5 lbs. My MacBook Pro fits nicely. Besides the well-padded laptop compartment there is section for papers and files, and in the bottom section there is a pocket for spare batteries and cables. I particularly like the space not only for two

I found out that Business 2.0 Magazine is printing its last issue, October 2007 while reading a blog post on TechCrunch today. A very sad day indeed. One of the few magazines I genuinely liked. Here is the blog post I read from Michael Arrington. The final issue of Business 2.0 magazine, October 2007, will soon be in the mail to subscribers and on the newstands. It promises to be a collector’s item and will probably be the biggest selling copy of the magazine in its nine year history. The image to the right, we’re told from a source, is the cover for that final October issue. Click for a larger view. It is a shame to see it go - Business 2.0 is one of only three magazines I subscribe to and read cover-to-cover every
