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.

Keep a close watch when sending your laptop through airport security checkpoints.A durable laptop bag is fundamental when traveling with your laptop. Make sure it has a dedicated computer section with plenty of padding. Mobile Edge has many laptop bags that offer superior protection for your laptop, and many don't even look like laptop bags at all. Most importantly, keep your bag with you at all times to ensure it doesn't mysteriously walk away without you noticing.Here are a few useful tips on traveling with your
