Ritz Interactive has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
"Until as recently as 2007, Ritz Interactive, No. 171 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, was putting up annual web sales of as much as $111 million and operated more than a dozen niche e-commerce sites.
"But a sour economy, problems with inventory and other factors have caused Ritz Interactive to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California. Ritz Interactive, which owns and operates RitzCamera.com and other sites, isn’t talking publically about its bankruptcy filing. It’s also unclear how Ritz Interactive intends to restructure."

Jill-e Designs press release: New Carry Bags From Jill-e® Designs Offer Panache With a Purpose The new Jill-e® Designs E-GO™ collection of carry bags makes it easy for female professionals to accessorize for success.
(Orlando, Florida)-August 29, 2011-Accessorizing for success just became easier. Jill-e® Designs, the leading maker of sophisticated camera and carry bags for today’s technology-rich lifestyle, announced the availability of E-GO™, an exciting new line of bags created specifically to meet the needs of the contemporary, fast-paced and cutting-edge woman.
Balancing fashion, form and function, the new E-GO line offers a professional, stylish solution for everyone, from the career woman rushing to board a plane without getting caught up in a gadget bag barrage to the working mother trying to keep her multiple electronic devices organized alongside her lifestyle essentials. The E-GO line of carry bags provides women with a convenient, one-bag option to help them protect and organize the tools of their trade without compromising on style.
“Most everything we do today is technology-driven. No matter where we go, we tend to be most comfortable when our cell phone is in hand and our other devices like iPods, cameras and laptops are in reach,” said Jill-e president and co-founder, Gail Backal. “The bags in the new E-GO collection give women a stylish, secure option to help hold it all, keep it safe—and look good at the same time.”
Offering strategic protection within a stylish silhouette, the versatile E-GO bags provide a chic, feminine alternative to traditional carry bags, which are primarily designed with the male executive in mind. The new collection offers six high-quality carry bags featuring smart and sassy plaid designs in black or tan, each with durable leather trim. All bags are weather resistant and include padded compartments for electronics as well as zippered pockets for personal items. E-GO Bags include:
E-GO Laptop Valise: An extra-large “shopper” that fits up to a 14” laptop and a camera with zippered pockets and other compartments for daily essentials
E-GO Laptop Satchel: A stylish gadget bag to accommodate a 12” laptop, a camera and personal items with a top zipper closure for extra security
E-GO Tablet Messenger: Convenient cross-body styling that holds up to a 10” tablet, e-reader or netbook with room for other daily essentials, and includes two roomy front pockets for a smartphone, keys and other need-it-now items
E-GO Laptop Tote: A north/south tote to hold a 15” laptop, notebook, camera and everyday necessities
E-GO Essential Camera Bag: Offers full protection with adjustable padded dividers for today’s compact system cameras and personal items
E-GO Wristlet: Great for a day or night out on the town, offering full protection for a smartphone, point-and-shoot camera or MP3 player and personal items
“Jill-e has become the leader in fashionable carry bags for anyone who’s carrying electronic devices that they don’t want rattling around unprotected—for those who care a little more about taking care of these fragile instruments,” Backal commented. “You can take it with you, and Jill-e’s new E-GO line allows busy working women to do it with style and class while safeguarding these valuable devices.”
Jill-e Designs expects to introduce the first of the E-GO line to the public this fall through the Jill-e website and at select retail outlets such as Adorama, Amazon, B&H and eBags.
