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
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.
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
By Chris Marshall10% of the $70 that you pay for this Mobile Edge backpack will go towards finding a cure for cystic fibrosis, thanks to the cooperation between Mobile Edge and the Boomer Esiason Foundation.That is the good news. The even better news is that the bag appears to be quality bag at a more than reasonable price. Made from ballistic nylon it is tough and strong. The buckles, seams, stitching and zippers are robust. The design means that it is “easy on the back as well as on the eyes”, and it has more than enough storage space for your laptop, accessories , and MP3 player, especially as it has a specific pouch and space for your headphones built in.To see full review click here.
A Laptop Case For The GirlsBy Alyse Wax Yes, I am obsessed with laptop cases. Probably because I am just obsessed with my laptop. My MacBook Pro is a good-looking machine; I want its case to be just as good looking.Enter Mobile Edge. They offer an entire line of totes, briefcases, backpacks and portfolios specifically designed for women. Not little girls, but businesswomen. This particular tote is part of the BEF Line. The Boomer Esiason Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis, and Mobile Edge donates 10% of BEF Tote sales to the foundation. The bag goes a step further: it is 100% vegan-friendly. The leather trim is faux; the suede lining is faux; the body of the bag is nylon. Read the entire review on SporkFashion.com.
By Doug AamothJust got done playing with a couple of new backpacks from Mobile Edge. They’re being sold in cooperation with the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which “is committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis.” A generous 10% of each one sold goes to the charity itself, so let’s see what these souped-up tote bags are made of.Boomer Esiason Foundation G-Pak The smaller of the two bags (although by no means tiny) is called the G-Pak, named after Boomer’s son Gunnar. It’ll hold up to a 15.4" laptop and has pockets for just about everything including a digital audio player pouch with a little rubber pass-through opening for a headphone cord. Mobile Edge pitches it as “the ideal backpack for students and others requiring a sturdy
