ECBC Hercules 17” Laptop Backpack Review @ Mobility Digest


Another review by me…



Quote: "Back to school next week for my kids, I think of lot of kids are back in school or are heading off shortly and the backpack is, I think, like a symbol of school. Most every kid or adult going to school has a backpack and having kids I know all backpacks are not created equal. My kids are getting older, but I still have a rather young one at eight years old and I found those ‘character’ style packs aren’t exactly the best quality. As we get older we learn to appreciate quality made products and I think going off to college you need something that will last though the year or even years to come. College isn’t like grade school, I know my kids seem to need or want a new bag every year, but college is different, you’re older and grown up so you don’t need a new bag every year anymore, you want one that will last through college and past hopefully. You need a bag like what I have for review today from ECBC, it’s called the Hercules and it’s aptly named as it can hold up to a 17” laptop but it’s got a whole lot of room for everything else you’ll need to take with you and it’s very well made. Quality comes at price though, this backpack will set you back about $140, but I think it’s money well spent as it will surely last for several years I would think… So read on to learn more about the Hercules… "

Bem Wireless Mobile Speaker Review


New review by me!


"Yep we’re still on the back to school theme this week, but today I don’t have another bag for review I’ve got a portable speaker that would be great for a college dorm or great for any use really. The product is from Bēm Wireless and it’s just plainly named the Mobile Speaker. Yes no fancy or cute name, just Mobile Speaker and that’s exactly what it is. The Mobile Speaker is small and portable with a built-in battery that should last about six hours and it has Bluetooth for wireless audio and it even has a 3.5mm audio port so you can use it with devices that don’t have Bluetooth capability. That’s not all though, the speaker has a 3.5mm auxiliary out port too which allows you to connect another non-Bluetooth speaker to it and turn it into a wireless speaker. So it’s more than just a little speaker, read on to learn more…"

Booq Boa Squeeze 15” Laptop Backpack Review


New review by me of an awesome backpack…



"Keeping with the back-to-school theme this week I’ve got another backpack for review today, this one is from Booq and it’s called the Boa Squeeze. Booq names their bags after snakes and this one is named after the Boa Constrictor obviously, but why? I think it’s because this bag is small but yet you can fit a lot of stuff in it, kind of like a Boa, it can eat things much larger than itself, it’s thin but much larger things can go in it. I don’t know if that’s true, just my thoughts on it. Anyway, the Boa Squeeze is a smaller style laptop backpack and by looking at it you wouldn’t think it would hold much but it’s deceiving in its design as you can fit up to a 15” laptop in it and a lot of other stuff like books and more for your school day. The bag is made from from polyester and nylon that is water repelling so you can take it out in most any weather and not have to worry about your things getting ruined. The Boa Squeeze is a high quality bag in my opinion so read on to learn more about it…"

Quote: "It’s back to school time and this week I’ve got two review coming up for you of two backpacks which I think is the quintessential school item! I think everybody, no matter how old, uses a backpack for school so today for review I’ve got the Rivacase 8160 which is a black colored laptop backpack that fits up to 16” sized laptops. Yes the bag is made for laptops but that doesn’t mean you specifically have to use it for that, you can use it for anything and I think it should last a long time as it’s very nicely made and quality bag. It’s not a huge bag by any means, but it’s large enough for books, laptops and most anything else you might need to take with you to classes. So just read on to see more about this backpack.. "

Targus CityGear TCG650 15.6" Laptop Backpack Review


New review by me!!!  Back to school theme this week, so be sure to check back, I‘m working another one right now and I’ll have more all week!



"Today for review I’ve got a backpack, the traditional back to school accessory for sure, a must have for any student no matter what grade level. The backpack is from Targus and it’s called the CityGear and it’s got a plethora of pockets big and small for everything you need for class and life. I’ve got a few backpacks for review and I’ve noticed a trend with all of them, they now have a dedicated tablet pocket, which makes sense as that’s the big thing now is for schools to be utilizing them and even giving them to students as part of the tuition package. The CityGear pack is also made for laptops and it does feature a nice large well padded section that will fit notebooks up to 15.6” in size and keep them protected while you’re going to and from classes and really just going anywhere. So read on to learn more about this bag from Targus…"

810-224-5028 Scammer


So I’ve got another scammy telemarketer calling me..  but it’s pretty much the same company as I just posted about the other day here




Brighton Michigan

Carrier: Mci Worldcom Communications, Inc.

Telemarketing Company: ?
Insight Teleservices
Determined Marketing

Various Reasons for calling Given:
Children’s Cancer Fund
Autism Society Fund
Children’s Leukemia Fund

These people keep calling and hanging up on my machine when it answers and I finally grabbed it and answered it on the first ring.

I told the lady we are on the do not calls lists for federal and state and she said "How am I supposed to know that?"

How is she supposed to know?  Well let’s see, this is quote straight from my state Do Not Call page: "Every telemarketer that calls consumers in Pennsylvania is required to purchase the list from the list administrator." 

Then from the federal do not call registry: "Starting January 1, 2005, telemarketers and sellers will be required to search the registry at least once every 31 days and drop from their call lists the phone numbers of consumers who have registered."

Hmm… that’s how she’s supposed to know…

We’ve been registered since the list came out, both home and my cellphone are registered.

The lady or girl or woman who answered was rude and ignorant and just downright annoying.
