Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator
Samsung brings the smart home to your kitchen with its new Family Hub refrigerator. Armed with a WiFi-ready 21.5-inch touchscreen, the Family Hub acts as the digital headquarters for your home with StickiBoard and WhiteBoard, a high-tech reimagining of the refrigerator sticky note that sends messages and syncs calendars to users’ smartphones. For food, three tiny cameras let you peek inside so you don’t waste energy with the door open. If there isn’t any food, simply make an order on InstaCart or Groceries by MasterCard. While you’re cooking, Pandora can stream music through the built-in speakers or play wirelessly through Bluetooth. Standard depth, $5,599.99.

Vivaldi Web Browser
Chrome might be the king of desktop browsers, but Vivaldi is looking to change the way you look at the net. The freeware bears many visual similarities to Opera and improves upon its competitor by introducing features more commonly used through extensions on Chrome. Tab stacking lets you group pages by dropping them on each other, and the window can now display multiple web page sections, ingeniously requesting the mobile version of sites to keep the browser clean and readable. Free.

Sony Alpha a6300
A few years ago, Sony made waves in the photography world with the release of the a6000, a mirrorless camera boasting the world’s fastest autofocus. Despite being the size of a point-and-shoot, the camera gave plenty of DSLRs a run for their money. Sony now follows up with an updated model offering a better signal-to-noise ratio, an improved BIONZ X image processor and an even faster autofocus due to a doubling of the amount of phase-detection points of its predecessor. Body only, $1,000.

Amazon Kindle Oasis
After the success of the Paperwhite, Amazon’s new Kindle Oasis makes an ambitious departure in design. Its most expensive model to date measures an inch wider with a slimmer, sleeker design and an asymmetrical bezel on the right side, engineered to let you read with one hand. It feels more like a book thanks to its page turn buttons and 300 ppi e-ink screen. The Oasis comes with a battery case which extends the life to eight weeks, and Amazon’s e-book store is one of the most comprehensive libraries available online. $289.99.

Host a Fabled Business Event in Wonderful Copenhagen

I imagine that when writer Hans Christian Andersen mused, “Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale,” he was standing at the edge of Copenhagen’s historic Tivoli Gardens, one of his favorite haunts, enlivened by the swirl of human happiness that surrounded him: children laughing; carousels spinning; games of chance played for prizes; lovers holding hands; hungry people whispering over sweets, hot drinks, beer and towering, open-faced smørrebrød, Denmark’s quintessential sandwich. That fairy tale lives on today at the second-oldest amusement park in the world, a spectacle of folly architecture, bakeries, gardens, rides, restaurants, puppet shows and joy ... and which also happens to be one of the city’s most storied places to convene for business.

Irwin’s Review

I recently dined at Irwin’s in Philadelphia. The restaurant is located on the rooftop of the Bok Building, a former school turned collective of small businesses, non-profits, artist workshops, a bar and restaurant. I previously visited Bok for the bar and yoga classes, and I was excited to experience the restaurant.
