Once again summer was too short, but what else is new. At least I can finally say I am in my final semester of college and wow, what a journey it's been. Working here at Mobile Edge I've started to pay much more attention to what my fellow students are toting those ridiculously overpriced text books in. I've seen a variable cornucopia of bags, from the typical black backpack, all the way to things that that look like they should be shot into orbit. Over my extensive college career :), I have seen more and more students drop the notebooks and text books altogether, in favor of carrying just a laptop. Heck I am one of them. The one thing we all have in common, is that like typical college students, we

Here is a great review of the SecurePack which was featured on webBikeWorld.com. Mobile Edge SecurePack Laptop Backpack by Glenn W. for webBikeWorld.com "Anyway, I was looking through the Mobile Edge website a few weeks ago and learned that they just released the new Mobile Edge SecurePack laptop backpack for motorcycles, which really piqued my interest. I ordered it and got one of the first available and I'm really pleased. I had been looking for a good motorcycle laptop backpack but most of the products seemed to be either cheaply made or not really designed with motorcycling in mind. The SecurePack is not only a very high quality item but it also has a couple of very unique features that make it perfect for motorcycling and also for simply trudging back and forth to work. The biggest selling feature of the SecurePack and the reason it's named is that the
By Bruce Horovitz, USA TODAY SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — Backpacks, which began emerging as an accessory for high school students in the 1980s, have become a $2 billion business with double-digit growth. And they're everywhere: 58% of consumers own backpacks, with 61% of the packs bought on impulse, according to a JanSport survey. About half of sales come in the back-to-school third quarter. Back-to-school dreams are designed here, just south of Oakland. The world's biggest backpack maker, JanSport, designs its megaline here. So does its oh-so-hip sister company, The North Face. The two make almost half of all small backpacks sold in the USA. Backpacks are no longer just for lugging books and peanut butter sandwiches. Students also pack them with laptops, cell phones and iPods. They've evolved into techno-fashion statements that have to look hip, feel comfortable and hold an ever-evolving array of stuff. Bagging the right backpack may have passed buying
Mobile Edge designed the new 17” Premium V-Load 2.0 (vertical load) briefcase with innovative designs no other manufacturer offers. This briefcase designed to carry 17” wide screen laptops has a removable SafetyCell Computer Protection sleeve. This removable sleeve makes it easy to go through airport screening checkpoints. This rugged briefcase uses their exclusive Bungee Comfort System (BCS) shock absorbing shoulder strap system. This patent pending design helps absorb the weight of the bag from your shoulder with flexible material that is built within the bag. Other innovative features are the use of low-frequency magnets to keep the outer flap closed. This replaced the harsh ripping sound that Velcro makes. Additionally, the V-Load comes with a Wireless Security Shield accessories pocket, which actually protects your Bluetooth enabled cell
So I am finally back in the office after a much needed escape from civilization last week. The trip was great, but it was a great opportunity for me to put my new Premium Backpack to the test on the road, literally. I was flew out to Missouri one way on Express Jet, I tell you some more about them in a bit. The return trip was packed into a van with 5 friends and a golden retriever named Sancho; very interesting to say the least. The trip out was a little different for me; I was flying out of an airport I hadn't used in quite some time and on an airline I had never used. For you Southern California business travelers, I am sure you already know how great Ontario International Airport is. What you might not know
