  • Bag Week 2018: Why I still love the Peak Design Everyday Backpack
    by Matt Burns on June 22, 2018 at 2:17 pm

    Welcome to Bag Week 2018. Every year your faithful friends at TechCrunch spend an entire week looking at bags. Why? Because bags — often ignored but full of our important electronics — are the outward representations of our techie styles, and we put far too little thought into where we keep our most prized possessions. […]

  • Bag Week 2018: Mission Workshop’s Radian rolltop starts simple but grows piece by piece
    by Devin Coldewey on June 22, 2018 at 12:02 am

    I've always been wary of modular, rail-based bag systems. They've always struck me as rather military and imposing, which I suppose is kind of the point. Even Mission Workshop, whose other bags I have always enjoyed, put out one that seemed to me excessive. But they've tempered their style a bit and put out the Radian, a solid middle ground between their one-piece and modular systems. […]

  • Bag Week 2018: The Nomadic NF-02 keeps everything in its right place
    by John Biggs on June 21, 2018 at 4:00 pm

    Nomadic, a Japanese brand sold by JetPens in the US, makes some of my favorite bags and backpacks. The Wise Walker Toto was an amazing little bag and I’ve always enjoyed the size, materials, and design. The $89 Nomadic NF-02 is no different. The best thing about this 15×7 inch backpack is the compact size […]

  • Bag Week 2018: WP Standard’s Rucksack goes the distance
    by John Biggs on June 21, 2018 at 3:00 pm

    WP Standard – formerly called Whipping Post Leather – makes rugged leather bags, totes, and briefcases and their Rucksack is one of my favorites. Designed to look like something a Pony Express rider would slip on for a visit to town, this $275 satchel is sturdy, handsome, and ages surprisingly well. There are some trade-offs, […]

  • Inside Atari’s rise and fall
    by John Biggs on June 21, 2018 at 2:30 pm

    By the first few months of 1982, it had become more common to see electronics stores, toy stores, and discount variety stops selling 2600 games. This was before Electronics Boutique, Software Etc., and later, GameStop. Mostly you bought games at stores that sold other electronic products, like Sears or Consumer Distributors. Toys ’R’ Us was a big seller of 2600 games. To buy one, you had to get a piece of paper from the Atari aisle, bring it to the cashier, pay for it, and then wait at a pickup window behind the cash register lanes. […]

  • New system connects your mind to a machine to help stop mistakes
    by John Biggs on June 20, 2018 at 4:01 pm

    How do you tell your robot not do something that could be catastrophic? You could give it a verbal or programmatic command or you could have it watch your brain for signs of distress and have it stop itself. That’s what researchers at MIT’s robotics research lab have done with a system that is wired […]
