Looking for a Backpack

Today’s spoiled consumer rant … I’m looking for a new backpack. My old one is around 10 years old and fraying. I got it at Uniqlo back when they used to carry backpacks (they don’t anymore). It’s been great and I still use it. But, I carry my notebook PC more and more and it’s less than smooth getting the PC in. It’s got an inside pocket for a notebook but if the bag is full or if the area is cramped, like when I’m on a bus, then it can by hard to get the PC back in. Sometimes I end up just carrying it outside the bus until I have room to force the bag straight to get the PC to fit the pocket.

So, I’m looking for a new one and it’s surprising with just a few, I would think, common sense requirements it’s hard to find a bag.

Random Links

Checking out Japaneze I found this fun site, Geisha Asobi Blog which links to the most random stuff. For example this site with Fake Japanese Products. Actually most of them are not done that well but a few made me laugh. Of course it was done better in the book 101 Unuseless Japanese Inventions which is also a bunch of fake inventions most of which actually seem almost believable.
