I am not talking about a form-fitted case or sleeve, but an actual bag created and/or named to hold a certain device. But the folks at WaterField Designs have done just that; the HardCase is aimed specifically at Apple's 13" [...]

duchesscase-bags-for-women

Women don't need special versions of tech gear, but sometimes we'd like a case that doesn't look quite so "manly" or even so "unisex".  It's gratifying that more companies are making tech accessories for women these days.  DuchessCase is an Israel-based company that makes a line of cases for women that they say has been [...]

avallone-city-messenger

Avallone says their sophisticated City Messenger bags are for men, but I don't see why women wouldn't like them, too.  These bags are certainly not the distressed leather bags often marketed for men.  They are made of Italian Nappa leather with cow suede accents and silver-colored metal hardware.  The bag measures 13.5" X 10" X [...]

TechSlinger clip detail

Tablets and mobile phones are great tools, and I wouldn't want to be without either of mine very long. I use both of mine constantly throughout the day, both for work and for personal information. Carrying them around, however, is a pain. Especially an iPad. Shirts and pants have pockets that can handle most smart [...]

"A place for everything and everything in its place" - Samuel Smiles, Isabella Beeton, Benjamin Franklin? :) Isn't coincidence a funny thing?  My wife had to go on a work trip for a few weeks and asked if we had a small backpack she could use while she was away.  Now I'm a messenger sort [...]
