Pocket TV

Now you can convert any TV into a Smart TV. This Android 4.0-based HDMI dongle lets you display Android on a TV, magically converting it into a mega-sized tablet. When you get to your destination, hotel room or office, plug into any monitor or TV to access your entire digital life. Download apps to stream videos, connect with friends on Facebook, catch up on news or surf the Web. Edit documents, read PDFs, review PowerPoint, conduct video conferences and send and receive email from a 50-inch monitor. No need to carry a heavy laptop for a presentation: Just plug the Pocket TV into the projector, and your presentation plays from a cloud account like Dropbox or from your SD card. $99 (pre-order price).

DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Tablet

The new DROID XYBOARD 10.1 is a real powerhouse, boasting dual-core 1.2 GHz processors; 1GB of RAM; and MotoCast for remote access to music, pictures, videos and documents stored on your work or home computer. Lighter than a paperback book and thinner than an AAA battery, the tablet features Android 3.2 Honeycomb and brilliant high-definition displays with wide viewing angles. An array of Business Ready features includes enterprise-grade security, apps like Quickoffice HD for document editing and creation, and Google Talk for video conferencing. Stylus support and a precision-tip stylus enable easy notetaking and markup. Powered by the lightning-fast Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. $529.99 (16GB), $629.99 (32GB) and $729.99 (64GB), all with a new two-year customer agreement.

Eye-Fi Mobile X2 Wireless Memory Card

The Eye-Fi card, the first wireless memory card of its kind, fits into cameras like a regular SD card — but with built-in WiFi, it automatically uploads pictures and videos from your camera to your computer, smartphone or tablet. During the quick set-up, choose the computer and the sharing site where you want your pics sent. With Endless Memory mode, the card automatically offloads to make room for new shots. And whether you’re at the beach, on top of Yosemite or at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, Direct Mode transfers photos and videos from your camera to your iPhone, iPad or Android device. Works with more than 2,000 digital cameras. $79.99.

GoFlex Satellite

No more worries about running out of space on your mobile device. GoFlex Satellite is the first battery-powered external hard drive to wirelessly extend the storage capacity of any WiFi-enabled mobile device. With 500GB, WiFi access over 802.11 b/g/n and a rechargeable battery, you can carry an entire library of video, music, pictures and documents. Wirelessly connect devices to the GoFlex Satellite drive via a Web browser or the free GoFlex Media App. Take more than 300 HD movies on the go, stream media to eight devices simultaneously and automatically sync documents from your computer. The device boasts seven hours of battery life and 25 hours of standby time.

Philadelphia’s Fairmount Boasts Impressive Collections and a Friendly Vibe

As a native of the Philadelphia region, I’m quite familiar with the drive in and out of the City of Brotherly Love. Even as the city’s skyline continually transforms, my favorite views of Philadelphia have always been along Boathouse Row, with the Philadelphia Museum of Art rising in the background, before looping around the museum to the flag-lined Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Home to many of Philadelphia’s incredible and world-renowned museums, the Fairmount neighborhood is fittingly aesthetically pleasing and practically synonymous with fine art.

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.
