I don’t recall what I took in my bag the first time to the hospital when we had Sloane, but I did try to pay a little more attention the second time around. There’s tons of advice for what mothers should pack, but what about the dad? The first thing you need to know is […]
It turns out that stripping all military styling from a GORUCK bag strips all character from it too.
Matt Henderson, talking about why he is switching away from the universally loved Ristretto: First, its vertical orientation. When all my gear is packed in the bag, it’s quite tight in depth (from front to back). However, since it’s tall, there’s still a lot of unused (and unusable) volume in the top of the bag. […]
Gabe Weatherhead: This is the bag you finish with, not the bag you start with. Oh, and that’s 8lbs empty.
Oh, here we go again. Which bag will I love today?
A nice report from Bloomberg’s Linda Sandler on LinkedIn’s incredibly shady practices. The report stems from a lawsuit filed against LinkedIn alleging (very generally) two things: That LinkedIn sent emails asking people to connect with users without user permission. More seriously, that LinkedIn hacked (in someway) into external email addresses of their users and scraped […]
Back when my wife was registering for all of our “baby stuff” for showers she asked me which diaper bag we should get. I am pretty sure I said pick “whatever” because I was confident Target wouldn’t have what I wanted, and knew my wife wouldn’t put up with me spending months trying to find […]
Georgia for iMore: Inside the iFixit Thirsty Bag you’ll find two “molecular sieve packets”. Each of these contains powerful liquid absorption material that, according to iFixit, can reduce the atmospheric humidity to 1% RH and suck up pretty much all liquid inside your device over night. Sounds like a fantastic piece of emergency kit to […]
I need another bag like a need a hole in the head — at least according to my wife. I have (off the top of my head) over 20 different bags at my house: from huge duffle bags to an iPad man-purse. My wife, well, isn’t too happy whenever I get a new bag. For […]
Early one morning I was going through OmniFocus to see what I needed to change into a project and what I needed to delete from my life. I was brain dumping a bunch of stuff for my upcoming adventure to SXSi and I realized that the kit I wanted to carry around with me, while […]
Stephen Hackett: However, linking to stories about how long someone has left to live is a different thing entirely — and is way over the line. Gizmodo, 9 to 5 Mac, Cult of Mac and others all crossed that line today. Amen.
Some great tips from Macgasm. My MacBook Pro used to wake up all the time in my bag and would feel like a hot stove when I pulled it out. Be sure that your Mac is asleep when you put it away – MacBook Air has not yet had that problem which is good because […]
Brian Hoff is compiling a list of some great messenger / laptop bag companies over on The Design Cubicle (my personal favorite are the Booqbags, I have had 4 and only replaced them due to differing needs never because of a problem with the bag). Be sure to check this out before you buy your […]
Continuing on from my pockets to my lightweight weekend and Friday bag: Case: Booq Boa Push Apple iPad 16gb Wi-Fi Verizon MiFi Bose Headphones Sharpie Pen (blue) Sharpie Liquid Pencil Mini Moleskin Business Cards All in all a pretty light and ultra-mobile setup that I try to use on Fridays and the weekends (only if […]
Just got my new iPad bag dropped off today – Booq Boa Push. Very small, very nice looking – review to come.
Testing the latest version of one of the best small backpacks out there.
After roughly 5 years, the GR1 still stands as the best backpack you can buy.
Is that a flashlight in your pocket?
I have so many good light puns here, I just cannot possibly choose.
