Dacuda PocketScan
This wireless scanner — the world’s smallest at 3.75 by 2 by 1 inches — will dazzle you with its functionality. Thanks to its photo-stitching technology, anything you scan instantly appears on your screen, as if you’re painting. It’s brainy, too, recognizing scanned text or tables in virtually any language and transforming the paper versions into content you can edit on screen instantly. A built-in light source means your scans are always bright, crisp and clear. PocketScan effortlessly scans large formats (like artwork) that would never fit in a standard scanner. Compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. $149.

Explore an Enclave Steeped in Authenticity Just Outside of Ubud

The verdant hills, rice terraces and serene temples have long attracted visitors to the island of Bali, where incense perfumes the air and raindrops scatter with an almost spiritual significance on city sidewalks. Today many visitors decide to stay, taking up residence in the now expat-centric hub of Ubud. The district was once the spiritual capital of Bali, but, in just the last five years, the desire for trendy cafés playing chill lofi music, craft brews and nightclubs has driven out many locally owned shops in central Ubud.

Bio-und Wellnesshotel Stanglwirt Review

The history of western Austria’s Stanglwirt stretches back to the 16th century, when a small tavern catered to miners stopping for a drink after long shifts. Today, it’s far from its modest beginnings, sprawling in scale and catering to a considerably different crowd, but you’ll still find heaps of heritage everywhere in this forward-thinking property that treasures traditional Tyrolean hospitality.
