iPad Reflection: What’s In Your Bag – Chris



Name: Chris

Place: New York

Occupation:  Student/Amateur Internet Connoisseur

At this moment It would be extremely difficult to live without my MacBook Pro, MacBook Pro charge, iPhone, keys, and wallet. As for things I can replace with the iPad, I don’t think I could replace anything. If I print something at the computing centers at my university I put them in the folder. The notebook is good for when I need to hand in loose leaf. Pens to write on said loose leaf. The most surprising thing I carry is the clicker because I have no immediate use for it.

Here’s what I have in my bag today (left to right, top to bottom):

  • VGA/HDMI to Lightning Bolt converter
  • Wallet
  • Pens (5)
  • Macbook Pro
  • iPad
  • Keys
  • Nametag for class
  • iPad charger
  • Blistex
  • iPhone
  • Wired mouse
  • Altoids (2)
  • Hand warmers
  • Macbook charger
  • Turning Technologies clicker
  • Moleskine notebook
  • Notebook
  • Folder

  1. Hopefully someday soon those clickers can be replaced by mobile devices.

  2. I detest clickers! I agree with Ken. If we have to use them, then maybe they can be replaced as an app or something.

    I do wonder, however, how you balance your life between the iPad and the Macbook Pro. Do you use one more than another? Is it location-specific? Etc…?
