Best for chargers and cables: Incase Nylon Accessory OrganizerPhoto: Michael HessionGet this if: You want a sturdy, lightweight, waterproof organizer to corral all of your gadgets and chargers as well as some toiletries or cosmetics in one place.Why it's great: The Incase Nylon Accessory Organizer has plenty of room for everyday gear; it zips closed, so items won't get lost or fall out; and it's water-repellent.The Incase bag is roughly the size and shape of a large paperback, and like a book it opens flat from a spine. It's 2 inches thick, which is among the slimmest we found for this type of bag, but it still has enough space to stash most of what we carried for a day. It has two medium-sized loops that can hold two 5 W USB power adapters or multiple pens. It has an external zip pocket with a cable-sized hole leading to the inside. We love this feature because it's great for charging a phone without removing the external battery pack from the main compartment. It also has a large, … [Read more...] about The best bag and cable organizers

What’s in your bag? is a recurring feature where we ask people to tell us a bit more about their everyday gadgets by opening their bags and hearts to us. This week, we’re featuring rock and electropop band A R I Z O N A. Zachary Charles, Nate Esquite, and David Labuguen technically have the day off, but that only means from touring. The three, known collectively as A R I Z O N A, are spending the afternoon at New York’s Quad Recording Studios working on a mixdown when The Verge arrives to shuffle through their things. A New Jersey-based band, Zach, Nate, and David started A R I Z O N A in 2015, as a last-ditch effort after years of trying to make it in music. “Fuck this, fuck music, fuck everybody, fuck the industry, everybody sucks, everybody’s terrible,” Zach says about his mentality at the time of the band’s creation. “But,” he proposed, “real quick before we before we go, do you guys want to make some songs just for … [Read more...] about What’s in your bag, A R I Z O N A?
ONE of the best meteor showers of the year is about to get under way, peaking tonight - and stargazers can't wait. Up to 120 shooting stars every hour are set to streak brightly across the sky at the peak of the Geminids shower. Here's how to watch. When does the Geminids meteor shower start? The Geminids meteor shower hits the Earth at the same time every year, beginning around December 4. In 2018 the peak - and therefore the best time to watch - will be on overnight on Thursday and Friday December 13-14, which means tonight is the night to catch the view. Nasa says it is one of the best and most reliable displays of shooting stars in the astronomical year. Meteors are very bright with trails that last long enough for a clear view. And they occur often, up to two a minute in the best conditions away from light pollution. The peak lasts for about 24 hours, giving everyone a chance to watch wherever they are on the planet. Flashes appear to come from the constellation Gemini, hence the … [Read more...] about Geminids 2018: What time is the Geminids Meteor Shower visible in the UK tonight where is the best place to watch and what’s the peak number per hour?
By Imad Brohi Published: November 16, 2018 0 SHARES Share Tweet Email The trip to Kilimanjaro and Tanzania ended but the memories will remain etched in my mind forever. PHOTOS: IMAD BROHI At 5,895 metres, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in the continent of Africa. Though dormant now, it is also the highest volcano in the world outside of South America. The mountain is one of the seven summits (a term used for highest peak in each of the seven continents). From the plains of Moshi to its summit, the mountain rises a staggering 5,100 metres, which makes it the tallest free-standing mountain on the planet. While it may not be for the faint-hearted, for many trekking/mountain climbing enthusiasts like myself, it is one of the starting points of their climbing career. At 5895 metres, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in the continent of Africa and one of the seven summits.
