You may be shocked to learn that there are still breakthroughs to be made in backpack design; that people are still working on ways to arrange pockets, and not just make them look like whatever cartoon their company has licensed. But I have to say that the Boa Squeeze by Booq has a slick, sci-fi design with lots of pockets to keep your digital life organized and mobile.
The company whose tagline is “The original maker of bombproof gear for living and riding the city” has introduced two new bags for the urban commuter. Whether you’re biking, walking, or taking the train, Chrome Industries’ new Postbag or Rucksack can get your gear there safely. Hopefully your commute doesn’t require bombproof protection, but if you are less than delicate with your Macbook, iPad, and other gear, Chrome has got you covered.
There are few Apple devices Moshi wouldn’t like to cover with an iGlaze hard case, the latest of which is the 13″ Retina MacBook Pro in translucent and graphite black color options. That’s good news if you own one, because the iGlaze Pro is worth considering no matter what you need covered.

Whether you’re a refined gentleman, fashion-forward lady, or just want to dress up your workaday routine with some casual elegance, the Drake offers a winning combination of style, protection, and utility for carrying around your MacBook, iPad, and accessories.
MacCase’s Premium Leather Flight Jacket has a retro flair, reaching back to the era between the two twentieth-century world wars when aviators wore leather flight jackets to buffer the wind-battering they got in open-cockpit aircraft and chilly temperatures at high altitudes in non-pressurized cabins. The Flight Jacket Case looks like a piece of kit in which Indiana Jones (a young Indiana Jones) might’ve packed his gear around.
The Booq Boa courier messenger bag is supposed to be Booq’s most comfortable and versatile bag to date. It’s a messenger bag made from water-repellent ballistic nylon and trimmed with night-time reflective binding. That means you’re sure to be seen, at least by cars, which is a good thing indeed.
The TwelveSouth BookBook is designed to mask your Apple device in a faux-vintage leatherbound book, and the company’s lineup now includes a BookBook case for the 15″ Retina MacBook Pro.

HEX—designers of stylish bags and accessories for laptops and mobile devices—has just launched a new lineup of cases and totes for spring 2013. Called Cabana, the nautical ticking stripe is at once casual and contemporary, for those who want a bit of style without an overly loud pattern.
As our laptops get smaller and thinner, laptop bag manufacturers are left with two choices; they can make their bags smaller, or they can make more room for accessories, documents and other gadgets. With their Poseidon Messenger bag for up to 13″ laptops, ECBC does both, although not in equal measure.
After three grueling months, North America’s national nightmare has finally come to an end. This Saturday, the puck will drop on the 2013 NHL season. I may be the only AppleTell writer who cares about this, but our parent company is based in Philadelphia, and you know what that means, right? It means mandatory Flyers skins for all employee electronic devices. Thankfully, SkinIt is offering 20% off all orders through January 21st.
