On the "brief" Prowl... As I work away tonight, the first "fireworks" have begun--even though they happen to be illegal in my local City :-(   @Mitch underscored that OlloClip was not for him--Some of the latest products they have is quite interesting and enticing--which is part of parcel of the evolution we have to see and be witness to.    May we live in interesting times!!

Happy 4th of July to all...may it be a safe and joyous one!!

Re: Keyboard addiction MikeP688 - Oh, I'm not dismissive. It's just not for me. 

I'd like a decent, inexpensive zoom lens for the iPhone. Haven't found one yet.

Re: Keyboard addiction The "pano" feature of iphone is amazing--no question.   Yet, the supplemental capabilities of Olloclip (and others that operate within the iphone "Ecosystem") underscore a sense of transformation.   The need for "SLR's" will never really go away--they just need to innovate further and yes be an engaging part of the ecosystem and be even more smart than they have.     I would also humbly suggest not to be too dismissive of start-ups like "ollo clip" because they seem to have a specific niche that serves them well.

Re: Keyboard addiction I've looked into the Olloclip and I'm afraid I don't see the point. I use the panorama setting on the iPhone and in Google Photos for the equivalent of wide-angle photos, and I don't see enough need for a fisheye or macro lens to warrant buying the extra equipment.

Re: Keyboard addiction ..and to add to thoughts from @Susan, I use my iPhone  as a SLR utilizing Ollo Clip @ http://www.olloclip.com/ which has given me some  interesting shots.   I have also been using it to produce video clips using Animoto.    The possibilities are quite limitless aren't they?

Re: Keyboard addiction Hopefully we're see an "evolution" in exercise gear so that you all don't have to pack up so much as you are.   If it is not, it should be though--because we have to be "expansive" in our view of what an "Office' should be.  :-)

Re: Keyboard addiction I pack my exercise gear when I travel. It's not shown here because it's not part of my office kit. 

I never use it, but I pack it.

Re: Keyboard addiction Mitch, 

I have also thought at some point about getting a good camera, but I believe the iPhone 6 Plus does the job pretty well. Apple keeps on improving the camera on the iPhone, and I finally see no reason to add more stuff to my office-in-a-bag.

Speaking of the iPhone, I also carry with me my Yoga Studio, FitStar personal trainer, and iRunner for my walks. There is no need to stop one's exercise routine. You can also carry your gym-in-a-bag along with your office. :)

Now that I see you also carry snacks, sometimes I carry some snacks, a bottle of water, and a Design Museum cup to avoid getting those paper cups in places, or the minuscule cups at press rooms. :D

Re: privacy screen for laptop... mhhf1ve - Good tip. Seems like another complication in an already-too-complicated go-bag, though.

Re: Kenu Airframe for $24?! mhhf1ve - The phone holder works great. It SEEMS a little loose and that worried me when I started using it. But it has never lost its grip. 

If your $3 phone holder is as good as my $25 ones, I'm going to be frustrated.
