Comfort Technology: 5 Criteria for The Perfect Backpack

You don’t want to break your back just because you happen to be lugging around that really heavy laptop, do you? Fortunately, there is one backpack brand that meets the five criteria of a backpack, which I’m about to share with you. I can’t wait to tell you all about it!

Say goodbye to backpacks that hurt your back! It’s time you upgraded your backpack choice, especially if you’re carrying heavy gadgets with you. People like you who carry tablets or netbooks wherever you go need a good backpack, one that not only protects gadgets, but also uses the best technology in comfort design.


Ergonomics of the Perfect Backpack: My 5 Criteria

The science of comfort design cannot be overemphasized, especially when it comes to something you use a lot… like a backpack. Too bad the techie ergonomic stuff didn’t come in style when I was still in school. My life would have been easier without the backaches!

I’ve always been on the lookout for the perfect backpack the same way others have been constantly looking for the elusive perfect pair of jeans. My quest for the perfect backpack never really ended – until a few days ago, that is.

In fact, I have my own personal criteria for that perfect backpack! Obsessive-compulsive techie readers, here’s your chance to scratch an itch as I provide you a neat list of my “perfect backpack” criteria.

No Warm Hello for Ello, the Newest Social Platform in Town

Have you signed up for the invitation-only network, Ello? You’ve probably heard about it, what with your friends saying it’s the next Facebook. Maybe it’s because of these great expectations that I’m not really warming up to Ello.

ElloSorry, Ello, there’s no warm hello to you coming from me – at least, not right now.

To be honest, I’m not exactly looking forward to managing yet another social network, as I shared with David Wales on Google Plus. David, by the way, is a programmer studying at the University of Canberra.

Ello feedbackShameless plug: Add me up on Google Plus. It’s where smart conversations happen. (Ello, look away. Sorry, Facebook.)

5 Things I’m Looking for (But Didn’t Find) at Ello

Let’s not waste your precious time. Here you go: the five main reasons I’m not giving Ello a warm hello just yet.

Royqueen Releases Suplado Tablet + Headphone Giveaway!

Wait, say what now? A Suplado tablet? Yes, that's exactly what it's called according to Royqueen, the snazzy Philippine tech company that thought of doing something radically different for a change. And yes, their wild idea seems to be working.


FYI: We are giving away stuff to all you techies out there, from iOS apps to Royqueen speakers and headphones! Details in this post - they're coming up in a bit, I promise!

Suplado Tablet by Royqueen: Daring to be Different

Formerly focused on selling computer games, Royqueen has since expanded, selling speakers, headphones, and tablets to a more tech-savvy market. After witnessing the Suplado phenomenon take off with the Suplado Tips book series (penned by comedian and FHM columnist Stanley Chi), Royqueen decided to join the bandwagon.

Stanley Chi for RoyqueenStanley Chi is the new face for Royqueen's Suplado Tablet. Who else is there who can pull off being suplado and be loved for it?

To complete their unorthodox campaign, Royqueen asked Chi to be their brand ambassador. (Chi's success with books didn't end with the Suplado Tips series; his latest book, entitled Men Are From QC, Women Are From Alabang made it to the National Bookstore Top 10 Bestsellers List this year.)

Excited to join the giveaway? You’re gonna have to read the rest of this post!

Follow us! Don't worry; we don't bite.
