Sean Carruthers: Taking a trip with your Android devices

“One of the upsides of business travel is getting the chance to visit a lot of different places and see new things. But one of the big downsides is that you often have to decide what to take, not only to do your job, but also to stay sane while traveling.

Here are a few options for those who plan to travel with an Android device as a companion.”

And amongst Sean’s recommendations is the…

“I’ve had a few Tom Bihn bags now, and they’re incredibly sturdy – they’re designed to last through years of heavy use without coming apart. The Synapse 25 is a checkpoint-friendly backpack with five water-resistant pockets along the front that can handle everything from keys and camera to a one-litre water bottle. Inside, you can add the foam-padded Cache with Rails accessory to add easy slide-out access to a notebook computer or a larger Android tablet. Add the small Snake Charmer pocketed pouch to store your power cords and cables, to keep them from getting tangled up inside the backpack. Even with this gear inside (and a bit more besides) there’s still room left over for a change of clothes, making it a perfect choice for a day trip…or for cycling/commuting to work (there’s even a little built-in strap designed for a bike light accessory).”

Side Effect as In-Flight Organizer

“Just got back from my first trip with my new Side Effect. During this trip I determined that 1 Side Effect + 2 S-Biners == great way to keep little fiddly things (earbuds, iPod, gum, pens, notebook, tissues, snacks, makeup bag, etc.) handy during a flight.” — Ms. Ferret

Apartment Therapy on small space desk solutions

“As tasks at hand get bigger, the space available on your desk seems to become smaller. When your workload is outgrowing your desk, there are a few ways to expand usable space. Just look up, down or sideways and think out of the box.”

Up? Apartment Therapy offers that: “There’s no reason ceiling-mounted storage, traditionally used in a garage, can’t be installed inside.”

Down? Many options, including our Horizontal Freudian Slip: “Buy a ready-made desk caddy that mounts or hangs off the side of the desk, like this one from Utretcht, this inexpensive option from Bed, Bath & Beyond, or the Freudian Slip from Tom Bihn (meant as a briefcase insert, but works great as a desk caddy, pictured above).”

A Week in Montreal

Zeek and Rachel packed their bags and took off on a week-long trip to Montreal earlier this year.

When he’s not in Montreal doing karaoke, Zeek is the Director at SHEP Films, the people who worked with us on our Smart Alec and Synapse/Ristretto/Swift videos.

impluvium: Empire Builder Review

 

Forum member impluvium recently graced us with this review of his new Empire Builder. He writes:

“It stands up beautifully by itself, even when empty, and the handles (which really do magically fall together for easy pickup) are super-comfortable. While it can hold a remarkable amount of stuff (more than I would want to carry!), it doesn’t feel too big, or unwieldy. And, of course, it’s beautifully made. It has the feeling of being a bag that I’ll happily be using 10 years from now.”
