Private Wifi

Did you know that, in any public WiFi hotspot, an enterprising hacker can view any information you’re sending or accessing? Firewalls and antivirus software can’t stop it, but Private Wifi can. The service protects your identity and secures your sensitive information by encrypting everything you send and receive, including website traffic, emails, attachments and IMs, making it invisible to hackers on any public network, anywhere in the world — plus it masks your IP address for an added level of security. The service uses industry-standard 128-bit encryption, the same technology banks and credit card companies use. PC and Mac compatible; coming soon for iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle Fire. $9.95/ month or $84.95/year.

Slow Down and Unwind in Easy-Going Phuket

It’s not even 9a.m. in the sleepy fishing village of Rawai on Thailand’s famous Phuket Island, but already the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea swarm with local fishermen casting their lines and releasing their nets from the bows of rustic long-tail boats. The scents of lemongrass, incense and sweet pandan leaves season the air as the villagers slowly rise from their beachside bungalows to start their day. In just a few more hours, the fishermen will return with their catches, filling the stalls of the iconic Rawai Seafood Market with buckets of shellfish and displays of fresh filets. Visitors line up each afternoon for the catch of the day, selecting their fish with care before hauling their purchases across the well-worn road to the restaurants opposite the market to have the fish cooked for 100 Thai baht per kilo.
