Jill-e Designs for Colourful and Stylish Gadget Bags

Posted by Andrew at 4:50 PM on February 11, 2011

Jeffrey and Esby get fashion tips from Jill Wight, President of Jill-e Designs, creators of stylish gadget bags. From SLR cameras to smartphones, there’s pretty much a bag for every device. But these aren’t boring grey or black – they come in a wide range of bright colours and fantastic patterns.

Although aimed mostly at women, there are some very stylish brown leather bags in the collection (see the Jack range) which would appeal to the men too.

Prices from $30 upwards.

Targus Introduces A New Line Of Bags

Posted by Alan at 1:04 PM on January 26, 2011

Targus, the premier computer bag maker, was at CES 2011 showing off their new line of products.  To nobody’s surprise they are going heavy on the tablet cases this year – as PC makers scramble to go heavy on the tablets.  They have been producing iPad cases for several months, but they give us a look here at the Samsung Galaxy Tab cases as well.  But, beyond cases they also have a stylus, which can be used with any touch device, including those running iOS (we know Steve Jobs LOVES the stylus).  They are also now producing a bluetooth keyboard as well.

Availability on these products is immediate and price points are mentioned during the interview.

Mobile Edge Scanfast 2.0 Checkpoint & Eco-friendly Stylish Laptop Bags

Posted by tomwiles at 1:45 PM on January 23, 2011

Matthew Olivolo of Mobile Edge Stylish Laptop Bags (www.mobileedge.com) presents the Scanfast 2.0 collection of Checkpoint-friendly and Eco-friendly laptop computer bags. Amazingly, the material is actually constructed out of corn and is therefore made of non-petroleum-based material. Featuring a butterfly design, the laptop does not have to be removed in order to be scanned, nor do the bags have to be placed into the TSA gray bins — they are designed to roll right down the rollers into the scanners. The laptop bags feature plenty of zippered pockets for numerous accessories. Models include a briefcase, messenger bag and backpack. The briefcase version will accommodate up to a 16″ inch laptop, while the backpack version will accommodate up to a 17″ laptop. The bags are priced affordable at $99 each and come with a lifetime warranty. If a zipper should break the consumer can send it back in for repair at no cost to the customer.
