What's in your bag

What people choose to carry with them every day can say a lot about a person. This was the founding idea behind the What¡¯s in your bag? interview series. So whether it¡¯s Verge staff, musicians, movie stars, or tech giants, we pry into their bag and their psyche to see what they use every day, in order to see what possessions have earned a prized spot among their personal items and why. What¡¯s the story behind the stickers they have on their laptop? Why do they keep using an older model iPhone instead of upgrading? What headphones do they prefer to use for travel versus in the studio? Why they swear by a certain type of gum? Why so many dongles?
