Skooba Design Netbook Messenger Bag Giveaway

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Events" @ 10:00 AM

Skooba Design is once again giving us the opportunity to give away some of their products - and this time it's their new Netbook Messenger bags ($49.95 USD). These small bags are a great companion to your small netbook, allowing you to travel light. I hate taking my netbook in the same laptop bag I use to carry a 13.3" screen notebook - and it's a laptopbag designed for a 15.4" screen laptop. Small computers deserve small bags, and that's what the Skooba Netbook Messenger bag aims to deliver.

Want to win? All you have to do is tell me what kind of a netbook or notebook you'd put in it (it will hold a netbook up to 10.5" x 7.5" x 1.5" in size), and what colour of bag you'd like. Three of the colours are pictured above, and it's also available in "Abyss Black". I'll be randomly selecting three winners from amongst all the entries.

This contest is open to anyone in the USA or Canada (sorry rest of world, shipping is too expensive on a large product like this). There's one post per person allowed, and the contest will stay open for one week, closing down on Monday the 30th of November at 3pm GMT -7. One entry will be selected randomly. All posts are moderated, so if it's your first post, it might take up to 24 hours for it appear.

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone that entered - it was neat seeing the variety of devices that everyone carries. The three winners, randomly selected, are: Steve Jordan, minikj, and Brad Adrian.

Win One of Two Skooba Sidekick Laptop Bags

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Events" @ 06:00 AM

I've reviewed a lot of Skooba Design (formerly RoadWired) products over the years, and their latest line of messenger-style bags look great. The Sidekick bag is priced in the realm of your typical found-at-Best-Buy laptop bags ($79.95 USD, on sale right now for $39.95), but I'm willing to bet it's much better than anything you'd find at retail. I haven't looked at one of these yet, so I can't say for sure, but my previous experience with Skooba Design bags tells me I'm probably right. I keep trying other bags, but always go back to my Skooba bags.

Want to win? All you have to do is tell me what you'd like to carry in the bag. Take a look at the photos on the Skooba product page, check out all the pockets and pouches, and post a message telling me what gadgets and gear you'd put into this bag. I'll randomly select two people and each will win one of these bags.

This contest is open to anyone in the USA or Canada (sorry rest of world, shipping is too expensive on a large product like this). There's one post per person allowed, and the contest will stay open for one week, closing down on Wednesday the 11th of November at 3pm GMT -7.

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone for entering! The two winners, randomly chosen, are Dyvim and NeilE. Yes, the same NeilE that won the last contest...but this is what happens when there are so few entries! We've got another Skooba Design contest coming up later this month, so watch for that.

Skooba Design Contest Now Over

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Events" @ 03:11 PM

Our giveaway contest for the Skooba Design Checkthrough Brief is now over, and the randomly drawn winner is...Neil Enns! Here's Neil's rather interesting travel story:

"On my last business trip I was flying to Austin. I got into the security line and realized I didn't have my wallet. I quickly called my wife and she turned around back to the airport in case my wallet was in the car. Nope. So I had no ID, no credit cards, no cash. And my house is more than 40 minutes from the airport so there was no way to go home and get it in time. What did I do?

I grabbed the $40 in cash my wife had and got on the plane. Yes, that's right. On the plane. Thanks to reading BoingBoing I knew that you don't actually need ID to fly. You just have to be ready for some extra scrutiny. The TSA supervisor gave me a stern lecture, but you could tell she was amused and she was nice about it. They had to call some special number, I had to answer some questions to "prove" who I was, sign an affidavit, submit to secondary screening, and that was it. Even the secondary screener was apologetic when he couldn't find the big stamp they needed to put on my boarding card to say I was clear to fly. My wife found my wallet at home and FedExed it to my hotel. It cost $28, and was at the front desk by 8:30am the next day. Fun stuff!"

Thanks to everyone that entered! I enjoyed reading the stories - some of them gave me a good chuckle. Thanks also to Skooba Design for the donation of this bag. I hope you'll enjoy it Neil!
