We haven't had a landline for years, and I rely exclusively on my cell phone.  I need to keep it with me so I don't have to run around like a crazy person, trying to find it before the caller hangs up, but most of my clothes don't have pockets.  I've tried various bags over [...]

Ah, gadget lovers and their gear. Hauling around our stuff used to be such a hassle.  Today, it's all about carrying multiple screens rather than a single screen and power adapter. Most of us carry a smartphone, as well as a tablet or phablet, and maybe a laptop. To accommodate the changes wrought by the [...]

There are a multitude of gear and laptop bags on the market, but most of them are unisex or styled for men or hip young things (or whatever the kids call themselves these days)  - or seemingly anyone other than the professional woman.  Levenger has several bags that are designed for women and sized to [...]

waterfield_hardcase-1b

Not often do manufacturers design a laptop bag with one specific brand or even model in mind. 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 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 [...]

We Gadgeteers haul our tech everywhere. Sometimes, we just need a few things, sometimes we need a lot. Sometimes we need to look presentable and business-like, sometimes it's OK to look like we're packing for a trip into a war zone or the wilderness.
