We love the signature striped fabric liner and the fleece lined 15" laptop sleeve for holding our Mac Book. The chambray and leather accents say I got style, the internal media pocket with headphone port says I am thinking ahead. Of course, if you are rocking some wireless buds from Schatzii, you can just stow your phone safely in the soft padded pocket and rock!

Mandal.ai uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to monitor chats both inside of its own platform or on email to spot when a meeting is made and confirmed. Mandal.ai can recognize a request for a meeting, offer suggested times to both (or multiple) parties by quickly looks through each user’s calendar, and confirm and save a meeting without the user ever picking up their phone. Another key feature mimics the much loved "Sunrise" app and integrates a Mandal.ai keyboard into any other messaging app.

We love our MacBooks and iPhones and nearly everything Apple, however, Google is making moves with its latest hardware offerings: the new Pixelbook and Pixel 2 phone. The Pixelbook is a clam shell laptop and flipped around a tablet. We love that you can charge both with the same USB-C cord and that the OS is seemless with all Google's software that we already use and love.

Its telling of the six-decades-old McDonald's saga makes it the quintessential contemporary entrepreneurial tale.
