  • In Hong Kong with the A-Line bag

    My Speck A-Line bag is still in perfect shape after I packed it with gadgets and dragged it around the world (literally) in October when I covered Hack In The Box 2012 Malaysia.

    Speck's reps were excited to hear I put their bag to the test - my Air, a hard drive, two phones, a jetpack, Kindle, Mophie battery, cords, plugs, adaptors... plus all my airplane necessities. With its smartly designed compartments, the A-Line was the only bag I needed on each of my seven flights.

    I found out on my visit that Speck will be discontinuing the A-Line soon.

  • iPad Mini FitFolio

    I liked the iPad Mini FitFolio's quadruple-angle stand. It doesn't have much else in the way of bells and whistles; it's a pared down solution.

  • Outside at Speck HQ

    I wanted to see and touch Speck's newest gear in person, and it was worth the trip to see how the cases felt and functioned. During my visit, Speck let me investigate and test its newest iPhone, Nexus, iPad Mini, Kindle Fire cases and folios.

    In this photo, you can see some of the cloth patterned Burton cases, and the new kid-proof iGuy for iPad.
