#53: Travel Apps, an Awesome Tech Backpack, and Twist

In honor of Juan’s upcoming trip, we take a look at one of the coolest tech backpacks we’ve seen: the North Face Surge II, which features tons of pockets, dedicated laptop and tablet storage, and a build worthy of a K2 expedition. We review two awesome travel apps: FlightTrack PRO, which provides flight tracking and status (including push updates, terminal info, and weather forecasts), and TripDeck, which stores your critical trip info, like flight/rental car/hotel confirmations and reservations. Both integrate seamlessly with the TripIt service, which automatically parses forwarded confirmation emails for the information you want to store. Also, Chuck reviews the Twist app — a cool way of keeping people updated on your pending arrival time when driving.
