We have posted a review of the LAbeace Classic 13" MacBook shoulder bag from French company, Be•ez (be easy). It's a less expensive, but fine looking bag. The quality construction combined with its unique design makes it a good fit for students and others with lightweight needs. From the outside, it looks remarkably similar to Booq bag products, but that's as far as the similarity goes. The 1682D nylon outer fabric wears well and all the stitching is finished off nicely. This black bag comes with a variety of interior fashion colors, but simple black or white piping gives it an outward business look.
iLEVL holder for iMac debuts
Botle and Sell has introduced the iLEVL, a copy holder designed specifically for the iMac desktop. The accessory was designed by Scott Amron of Amron Experimental to attach to the side of an iMac without magnets, adhesives or clips. The iLEVL Copy Holder is constructed from a single sheet of steel. It has a non-slip rubber coating and adjustable paper tray angle. The copy holder is attracted to the strong magnets located inside the iMac. The iLEVL holds papers at eye level, reducing neck and upper back stress during the reading and referencing of copy. It's priced at $15.
Desktop Transporter unlimited license unveiled
DEVONtechnologies, LLC presents a world-wide license for its remote desktop solution Desktop Transporter for $200. While the regular Desktop Transporter license is valid for two machines (the walkie-talkie concept), DEVON says many users requested a more cost-effective license for larger installations. The new Unlimited Pack license allows to use Desktop Transporter world-wide within an organization. esktop Transporter requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 later, a fast LAN and/or Internet connection is recommended.
VMware Fusion video contest unveiled
The VMware Fusion team has announced a new video contest, entitled "My Switch to VMware Fusion." In the contest, users who have already switched to Fusion pull together a 60 second video on why they switched to VMware Fusion to run Windows on their Mac, and post it on the web. VMware says "There's no better spokesperson than a happy, delighted customers, which is why we see this customer validation as central to our campaign. Marketers can say all kinds of things (trust me, I know), but unvarnished peer references really count." Every single participant will get a VMware Fusion team t-shirt exactly like the team had at Macworld, and a "My Mac Loves VMware" bumper sticker. One lucky videographer whose video "best demonstrates why it was important to switch, why Windows on the Mac is important, and does it with the highest production value," will walk away with a MacBook Air, complete with VMware Fusion and a copy of Windows.
