Knomo has a new bag in town in the form of the Kobe Soft Messenger bag. the Kobe features full grain cow hide leather and recycle PET fabric exterior with brushed nickel hardware, should fit a 15-inch laptop nicely along with other miscellaneous items.

if fabric or nylon messenger does not speak of the executive-ness in you, then the leather item is the way to go. i love leather stuff but usually that love does not applied to messenger, but this one from Knomo looks pretty sleek. the interior is of soft fabric lining with scotch guard coating.

the bag features several compartments, among them is a quilted laptop pouch with high density foam around the base to help cushion any knocks. i say, Kobe is nice on first look, but quite hefty price for a messenger. the Kobe will be available end of the month.

oStylus – stylus for touchscreen with a ring

oStylus Capacitive Touchscreen Stylus | US$37.50 | ostylus.com

we brought attention to the stylish stylus, the Just Mobile AluPen last week. here’s any stylish yet odd-looking stylus from oStylus. unlike traditional stylus, the oStylus has a ring tip instead of your normal rubber head.

so what’s with the ring tip? here’s the logic: our finger, or any other stylus out in the market, tends to block the screen. with the ring tip, it allows you to see the lines and colors that you are drawing. through the ring, of course. as an avid doodler on iPad, i fully comprehend the logic. especially when i was trying to draw fine lines.

the ring is hinged, so it swivels ensure flat contact at any angle. to be honest, when i first saw this product. i was like ‘metal for a stylus tip? that can’t be right’ but my worry was put to rest when i realized that there’s a vinyl at the bottom of the ring. if you ask me, i’d think i will be putting my touchscreen at risk for putting a metal that near to it.

good things don’t come cheap these days – or any other day. the oStylus retails at US$37.50. well, considerably cheap if you compared to it’s original version which is cost US$70. wow. the original version is available upon request.
