Does anyone else think it's odd that anytime we see a photo of a young celebrity she's carrying a two-pound dog or 30-pound handbag, but never, ever a computer bag? Let's take a moment to ponder the significance of this particular phenomenon. How is it, while everyone else in the world is studying, writing and communicating via our laptops, it's not a necessity for the famous-for-doing-nothings? For those of us who do read and write, Uncommon Goods offers the retro-looking Laptop Sling ($50). The unusual hourglass shape helps hold our precious laptops in place and will stretch to accommodate a 14"-15" monitor.
