How to Carry Your Gadgets in Style

Are you having trouble finding accessories that protect your tech bits and pieces, yet are also practical and look good at the same time?  If we were all freakishly strong, didn’t have to battle thousands of people during our daily commute and didn’t mind looking like crazed bag ladies day in and day out, it’d be pretty simple to carry all of our gadgets around with us.

Giles Deacon Designs 3D Glasses for LG

After trying to convince myself that I was a purist and enjoyed a more simple, straightforward cinema experience, I have finally admitted to myself that I actually really love 3D films.
