I'm back in the office now after spending a few days out in Florida. It was a great trip and the weather was awesome, even with the daily thunderstorms. Nice change of pace though for someone from So Cal where we aren't used to having that kind of weather. The flight was great too. I'll definitely be flying Continental Airlines again after this trip. What I was really stoked about was the new Mobile Edge Premium V-Load I had with me on this trip. Typically I am more of a backpack kind of guy, but the Premium V-Load went a long way in changing that. The biggest thing I was concerned about was how comfortable the bag would be after I stuffed it out with my 15.4" widescreen laptop, 8"

By Kate - Funky, Chic and Cool Laptop Bags on Squidoo.comGeek 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 organizations and the individuals who wage this battle on a daily basis. We also use Pink for a Week as an opportunity to

Caring Globally, Acting LocallyAnother 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 Cure Foundation nationally. To date we have donated nearly $200,000.00 and counting. Locally in Orange County, this is
By: Sarah Meyer of NotebookReview.comThe 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 SpecificationsDimensions: 20" x 16" x 8.5" Compartment Dimensions: 13.2" L x 11.7" H x 1.9" W Weight: 2.65 lbs.

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.
