This week saw the release of a new breed of carry-on travel bag which I believe is a game-changer in bag design. The ProTravel Carry-on was launched via Kickstarter and it has already seen demand that has got the project funded within 24 hours.
The bag is designed and created by Jimmy and Doug from Minaal. I know the guys personally and I’ve been watching the bag develop over 2013. I’ve ordered my own bag which is on sale at Kickstarter at a discounted rate.
Check out the video as well.
The new iPhones are out and I know many digital nomads come to Bangkok to buy unlocked iPhones. Richard Barrow has the unofficial prices of iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c at MBK in Bangkok.
And more news on iPhones (of which half of my newsfeed seems to have been iPhone related this week), here are the most expensive countries to buy an iPhone. While the Big Mac Index covers more countries I like this idea of comparing phones prices to gauge costs around the world.
