Reading stands and book holders have been around for years, but recently, due to the proliferation of single-slab devices coming out, they seem to have been making a resurgence. The Wedgestand is one of the new line of stands, designed for laps as much as for a table or desk.
We write a lot about keeping gadgets safe from damage. Cases, gear bags, screen protectors and the like are all subject to being damaged by something you may accidentally do.

I really love things that allow me to use tech in relation to other things in my life, like my dog, Jack. Tom Bihn, a premier bag maker in Seattle, has a great specialty bag called the Citizen Canine which can help you keep all your “dog stuff” in one place.

They are located in just about any city of decent size, and usually carry many small electronics, in addition to larger things like computers, TVs, car audio, and [...]
Interesting take on the age-old gadgeteer’s problem of portable power. AViiQ (pronounced “a-VEEK”) has announced their Portable Charging Station, a 3+1 USB charging hub in a zippered carrying bag. Pockets for your cables, pass-through syncing with your laptop on one of the ports, and a single-slot AC adapter all show their attention to the design [...]
