A while back, I reviewed an excellent Cocoon Innovations netbook case with an integrated GRID-IT! Organizer, a feature that I really loved.

Being the gadget freak that I am, I like to have gadgets in the kitchen almost as much as I do in the office or on the go. I am a big fan of drinking tea (both hot and cold), but often I only want one mug of tea at a time, not a whole [...]
Once again, Barnes & Noble was ill-prepared when it comes to the nook. Now, don’t get me wrong–I really, really love mine. Since I got mine on the 8th of December, I’ve read somewhere in the vicinity of twelve books and can’t wait to read more. But today, when I tried to buy the Sookie [...]
