Default The "Forget-me-not" Skooba Cable Stable DLX

<p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1270834807.usr1.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Any road warrior worth his or her salt has a favorite way to carry their gear into battle. Mine arrived in my consciousness many years ago when the company provided a Dell laptop case along with the corporate laptop. The accessory case has out lasted both the case and the laptop. The contents? A wireless mouse, small surge protector, 2 RJ 45 reels, HP power supply, Bluetooth dongle, several USB cables, and several USB thumb drives. It fits into my current backpack and allows me to keep track of all those things you take along so you can actually use your laptop.</p><p>Well, the old accessory bag may have met its match with the <a href="http://www.skoobadesign.com/product/cable-stable-dlx-84/" target="_blank">Skooba Cable Stable DLX</a> ($39.95 USD). First, as you can see in the above photo, it has plenty of room for the gear and you can actually see it for a change without digging and wondering if you actually left important dongle at home.</p><p><MORE /></p><p>How many times have you had to find the local computer store for that @#$!$! thing you left at the last hotel? I cannot promise that you will never leave something behind, but the Cable Stable makes it less likely. (Hint: if you leave a power supply at your last hotel, ask the next hotel if they have one. Chances are another traveller left their's behind last week some time. It saves some time and money and perhaps your job if it is after midnight.)</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1271881821.usr1.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>True to the description on the package, the zippered case has a place for everything with a variety of pockets, elastic, and sleeves. The mesh pockets are great for wireless mice and RJ 45 reels. The zippered mesh pocket holds I really like the place for small USB thumb drives, batteries and pens in the spine. There is also a zippered pocket on the front for those of us that carry CDs or DVDs along for the ride (see above). The great part is that it is about the size of a hardback novel and easy to fit in almost any PC bag.</p><p><a href="http://www.skoobadesign.com" target="_blank">Skooba Design</a> makes a variety of computer bags, protective sleeves, and accessory carriers. Next time you are looking to replace that old, faithful carry-on take a look at what they have to offer. I know I will.</p><p><em>Jeff Deneen is the Principal at 17 STS Marketing Group, a company which is focused on customers, prospects, and using technology to enable companies to communicate with them.

I have something sort of like this, but this product looks more well thought out than the one that I use. Might have to pick one of these up, it's a great design...

Cute idea - but, Gee, we certainly do not travel with that much stuff!
