LOS ANGELES -- If your company sends you to remote locations, or if you're required to stay in radio contact with other team members, these wristwatch-styled walkie-talkies might come in handy. There is a 1.5-mile range, and like most standard walkie-talkies, a channel scan.

Next up, Belkin makes a FlyThru Laptop Case that Gadget Grrl says is ideal for anyone interested in getting through airport security quicker. This one has a clear plastic side that enables TSA's workers to literally see your laptop, so you don't have to spend time removing it.

We'll look at the case later. Now, more about the wristwatch.

These wristwatch styled walkie-talkies might come in handy, if you need to stay in radio contact with your team members.

A speaker on the front blares out the other person's voice, and for the price, the quality is not half bad.

There is also a watch built into the device and it's powered by a Lithium rechargeable battery.

They come in bright colors including yellow, blue, brown, purple, skyblue, aquaand gray, which make them easy to see if you're using them in a low light environment.The LCD is backlit so you can see the display at night.

Getting through airport security quicker is always something I am interested in, so when I saw this FlyThru Laptop Case from Belkin, I wanted to check it out. You may have seen someone ahead of you in the TSA line balance their laptop on top of their bag only to have it fall on the floor and crash. With this FlyThru bag, that won't be a problem.

For starters, along with the standard compartments on one side of the bag (which includes pockets for PDAs, cell phones, pens, USB drives, etc.), there is a separate compartment on the other side with a soft layer to cushion your laptop. It also has a clear plastic side that enables TSA workers to literally see your laptop, so you don't have to remove it.

There is a zipper that runs along the center of the bag so that when it is unzipped it lays flat, revealing the two sides of the bag.

In fact, the bag will easily lay on the conveyor belt so you don't even have to mess with the grey, plastic bins.

More than Kumbaya is going on here at this site. It is a group chat Web app where members of a group (or business) can congregate in private rooms.

For co-workers who are working from various locations, this can be a great tool to drop-in and compare notes at the time of day that you are available. So, West Coast workers don't get left out of the loop.

There are various pricing plans and a free trial to decide if it's right for your company.
