  1. Melissa, You put some very cool stuff on this list.

    Admittedly, the Star Wars X Wing Pilot Hoodie by Marc Ecko, the Powerbag, and of course the Shirt from ThinkGeek top my Christmas list. ;-)

  2. Thanks for featuring the ZAGGfolio, Melissa. It performed amazingly at PubCon last week. Didn’t have to recharge it once. (And we added 10 new colors/materials today)

  3. Tim, same for me! I want that hoodie and I love the shirts. I love the power bag, but have an LV bag for my laptop :-)

    Scott, t the ZAGGfolio looks amazing! Congrats on the new colors. I love the pink! Smart move. Didn’t you all have a vote for that recently?
