When I saw the brilliance that is Kid Lid, I couldn’t help but wish I’d had one of these brilliant laptop keyboard covers when my kids were little. And that I had thought of an idea like this myself. Darn. Like dad Matt Mogol, founder of Kid Lid, I’d use my computer for work but inevitably, it would end up being a video player for my little ones–especially easier when we were on the road or I just wanted a bigger screen than a tablet.. But then I’d find myself in that annoying state of restarting the video they were watching 400 times because they’d tap...Read More

We all have our rational list of features that make for ideal laptop messenger bags but can I get real for just a second? We know why some of our menfolk pick their bags – it’s for the way they look when slung nonchalantly over their shoulders. Then there’s the new Moleskine myCloud Messenger Bag–yes, from that Moleskine–which combines smart features and great looks into one amazing bag. And amazing Father’s Day gift idea. – You may be able to win one of your very own! See details below – A friend of mine owns one and I was instantly impressed. The tone-on-tone dark greys say “totally pro” but with...Read More
If you’re looking for a sweet Father’s Day gift (you are starting to look, right?) for a cool, stylish, gadget-loving dad I think I’ve found just the thing. Now on sale for a sweet 40% off at Nordstrom, the Burberry iPad Mini case jumped off the web page at me, begging me to buy it. It’s a full $50 less than other department stores also touting the sale right now. Should this be calling your name, I’d grab one quick while it’s still around; that sapphire blue is absolutely stunning and it’s all made of real leather, of course....Read More
With summer unofficially here (and can I get a big amen to that?) it’s the time a fashion-conscious techie’s mind turns toward other pursuits. No, not getting off the iPad; I mean finding a more summery case for toting that bad boy around. If you’re thinking about swapping out the wintery black case for something more of the season, check out this new offering from our friends at Knomo who make an iPad case I’ve got my eye on. The Maple crossbody Knomo tablet bag comes in this beautiful taupe that’s the perfect summer neutral. Though there are some other gorgeous colors...Read More
We have covered more than our fair share of awesome diaper bags at Cool Mom Picks and laptop cases right here, but a bag that does double duty may be a first. The Courage Backpack from TWELVElittle has room for all of the baby stuff you need for any outing, plus a tech sleeve to keep your 14″ laptop or tablet on hand but far far away from any of the scary diaper bag essentials. It sure beats carrying two bags on one arm and a baby in the other. And it sounds like an awesome Father’s Day gift for a new dad. This unisex diaper bag-backpack hybrid also have a ton...Read More
Not every guy wants a slick, board room-ready, fancy European looking iPad case. I know quite a few who would appreciate something a little more rugged. More defiant. More ironically low-tech. For him, consider the Upcycled Mail Sack iPad Case for Father’s Day. When I saw it at Uncommon Goods I thought, now that’s the kind of case that says “yeah, I’ve got every episode of Bear Grylls on DVR. Got a problem with that?” Each one is one-of-kind, and obviously eco-friendly; even the ultrasuede comes from remnant scraps. And the case is designed to be super rugged and durable, with an inner lining to protect...Read More
I used to think that stylish laptop bags were just an urban myth until I discovered Knomo, whose gorgeous totes are a staple in my spring wardrobe. (Yep, that’s my own on our Instagram feed). Well, I just spotted their new collection and let’s just say, if you’re one of the lucky ones who’s got a tax refund coming back to you (Happy Tax Day?), this could be the perfect way to spend it. And maybe a deduction too, if you use it for work? Ask your accountant about that one. I truly love the sleek design and rich orange...Read More

We’re all for having fun with our gadget cases, but some occasions demand more sophistication than playfulness. Lucky for us, one of our faves, Mujjo, has launched two new collections of beautifully handcrafted cases and iPad sleeves that fit the bill perfectly. And they’re more affordable than they look.

The Mujjo Low-key Collection features black leather and dark charcoal grey felt...Read More
Riddle me this, Miss Drew: what looks like a book and feels like a book but is actually thousands of books? Oh… you already solved it by reading the title. Well, you’ll never guess how pretty this handmade e-Reader cover is on the inside. I love real books, and I love e-books, and I especially love finding ways to bring them together. For example, my iPad mini case is handmade by bookbinders, which feels and looks delicious. But if you’re even more old-school than that, you might enjoy the feel of an actual book wrapped around your e-Reader, as in these beautiful...Read More
So I’m aware there are actually splurgier tech accessories than this stunning Christian Louboutin iPad case but uh, did I mention it’s stunning? And splurgy? And also stunning? Not that I expect to own this at any point my lifetime, so I am imagining printing out a full size image of the case, front and back, and just gluing it onto some cheap clutch I own now. Then again, I’d be missing all that fabulous detail like the stud embellishment on the mint leather, that beautiful lemon leather trim, and the cute little pull tab that looks like a Louboutin shoe....Read More
