Hex introduces Cabana collection, stylish bags that guard your gadgets


I may be a technological nerd, geeking out over every cool new cutting edge innovation that I read about, but I moonlight as a fashionista. For better or for worse, I’m kind of obsessed with finding interesting and new accessories to wear. Coupled with that, I’m also constantly on the road. For years, I tried to find a bag that would not only protect my laptop or tablet, but that was also stylish. Unfortunately, I continually found myself drifting in a sea of plain black vinyl bags. 

Based on this, you can imagine how excited I was to stumble upon the designs from Hex, particularly their latest Cabana collection. They offer bags that are not only affordable, but also completely stylish. They’re designed so well that most people won’t even realize that the bag you’re toting was strictly designed for protecting your laptop or tablet.

Each bag is designed with a thickly lined sleeve on the inside, perfect for anyone constantly on the move with their mobile devices. The sleeves are sized to protect anything from a small e-reader to a 17-inch laptop. And the best part is, there are styles for just about anyone’s taste. I prefer the tote and the duffel (pictured above), but there are also backpacks, messengers, cross-body, and even just a straight up sleeve to tuck your laptop into.

Also a comfort for travelers, the sections of each bag that store electronics are easy to access, so pulling your device out while going through airport security is insanely easy. Since many of the bags store much more than just a single device, these bags are much more useful, and I can also throw in my wallet, keys, iPod, glasses case, and much more. (As anyone living in a city can attest, carrying a bag at all times is pretty essential.) To boot, prices are affordable, ranging from just $40 to $100.

In addition to bags, Hex also offers stylish iPhone cases, watch bands designed for fitting an iPod nano, and even hard cases that fit right onto your Macbook, offering additional protection and some personality.

Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) -- $220, was $249

The Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) is a marvel at this price. Easily one of the best smartwatch deals, it covers everything you could need. You gain comprehensive yet easy-to-use fitness tracking thanks to Apple's Activity Rings system and steady stream of challenges and rewards. It's fast too thanks to having the latest processor. Despite that, you still get to enjoy a two-day battery life with the watch easily comfortable to wear all day long. It lacks the ECG and blood oxygen sensors of the Series 8 along with the always-on display, but that won't be an issue for everyone. The key thing is you get an excellent smartwatch at a great price.

Apple Watch Series 9: the 6 biggest things we want to see
The Apple Watch Ultra with the Apple Watch Series 8 and Watch SE 2.

The Apple Watch Series 8 was a bit of a boring release for Apple’s wearable, as it wasn’t a huge upgrade over the Apple Watch Series 7; Apple seemed to spend more energy focusing on the Apple Watch Ultra instead. The only real upgrades for the Series 8 were the newer-generation S8 chip and a new body temperature sensor, though the use cases for that are pretty limited. But if you didn’t have a Series 7, then the Apple Watch Series 8 was still a great upgrade for those coming from older models.

We’re still a few months away from Apple revealing the next generation of Apple Watch with a Series 9 model, which is most likely coming sometime in the fall, along with the iPhone 15. But until then, here’s what I’m hoping Apple will put in the Apple Watch Series 9 when it finally comes out.

iPhone 15: release date and price predictions, leaks, rumors, and more
iPhone 15 render by 4RMD

As great as the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are, they're both already a few months old at this point, and the rumors about the iPhone 15 are well underway. We still have several months before the iPhone 15 models drop, though, as Apple usually makes iPhone announcements in the fall. In other words, there's still a lot of time for rumors to circulate around the internet.

We're keeping all of the reports and rumors of the iPhone 15 here in a single place for your convenience, but do remember to keep in mind that these are all still just speculation. Nothing is final until Apple confirms it during an official announcement. Still, a lot of the rumors give us an idea of what to expect each year, which is unfortunate if you like surprises. Here's everything we know of the iPhone 15 so far!
