Traveling is amazing, some of the best experiences of my life have been when I have been traveling. One downside of traveling is of course packing and then going through the security checkpoints. Typically when I travel I have a backpack for my laptop and other electronics and a carry-on style piece of luggage for my clothes. ECBC has combined those two into what they are calling the Pegasus Wheeled Backpack. At first glance it looks like a typical piece of carry-on luggage, but open it up and you have room for your laptop and all types of electronics. On top of that it can be a rolling bag, or you can wear it on your back as a backpack. Did I mention the Pegasus is TSA safe, meaning you don’t need to remove your laptop from the bag when going through a security checkpoint. Let’s see what the Pegasus is all about!

Currently most airlines do not allow you to have personal electronic devices turned on till the aircraft reaches 10,000 feet, which seems pretty ridiculous.

Regular readers may notice that this is my first article in a while. Why, you may ask? I’ve been traveling throughout the eastern United States on business. Since June, I’ve spent more than 18 of 30 weeks on the road, in the air, or on a train. In that time, I honed my travel skills and, most importantly to we geeks, my travel kit.
This article aims to describe some of the necessities and nice-to-haves when traveling by car, train, or plane. I’ve got things from headsets to personal battery packs, so hopefully you’ll learn and thing or two and be even more prepared for your next trip.
When you are purchasing a laptop for most people speakers are really not their first concern and they really shouldn’t be. I’ve owned quite a few different laptops over the past couple of years and the speakers have been pretty bad on all of them. The speakers on netbooks are even worse.
