Traveling with a laptop can be a bit of a pain when you are trying to get through security and need to remove your laptop and trust it to the TSA officials as it moves through the x-ray machines. With checkpoint friendly bags like the Skooba Checkthrough Brief you can leave your laptop securely in position adjacent to all your other gear and rest easy that no one has to handle your laptop. Every test that I conducted in real trips through security have been successful with the Skooba Checkthrough bag and I recommend this outstanding quality case.

There are several ebook readers on the market today with the Sony Reader, Amazon Kindle, and Barnes & Noble Nook the most popular. One of my favorite ebook stores is Kobo because books purchased through them can be read on multiple devices. This summer they will be launching their own piece of hardware, the Kobo eReader, at an affordable $149 and I had the chance to spend some time with it.
