Opinion: Man-purses are about to catch on bigtime

Women are set.  Just throw your new iPad into your big-ass purse and be done with it. 

I’m planning to get Apple’s new gadget. The biggest decision is whether to wait for 3G or get one on March 26th. (Who are we kidding? I’ll be camping out at the Apple Store on release day).  The real question is: How am I going to schlep one of these things around? 

The point of the iPad is that I can take it places where my MacBook Pro doesn’t need to go.  I’m thinking weekend trips, vacations, coffee shops, etc. 

The Europeans are also set.  They have the European carry-all because there (in France at least) you need to carry your car registration with you everywhere and your driver’s license is the size of a passport. It’s socially acceptalbe and dare I say? hip. You can fit an iPad into one of those.

But what about us American guys? 

Fanny pack?  Negative.

Unless anyone has any better suggestions, it is looking like my only option for carrying one of these around is going Euro. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
