Bheestie

Bheestie Bag

Our favorite newcomer from the it’s-about-time-someone-thought-of-that department, the Bheestie Bag removes moisture from personal electronics, including cameras and mobile phones. Spill your drink on your phone? Drop your PDA in the pool? Just remove the battery, toss it in the bag and zip it shut. Bheestie’s powerful moisture-absorbing beads physically pull the liquid right out. Presto — your gadgets are saved! Lasts up to a year, depending on use. How cool is that? $20.


Blio eReader

Like the idea of a Kindle but prefer to maintain some of the vestiges of “old-fashioned” books? The brand-new Blio is the first eReader to preserve the image-rich format of books and magazines, including their layout, typesetting, images, color and graphics, while also supporting full media functionality, including video, graphics and Web links. Through a partnership with Baker & Taylor, the world’s largest distributor of print and digital books, Blio offers a library of more than 1.2 million titles across genres; purchased books are stored in your personal virtual library, giving you limitless access to their downloaded content. This library seamlessly migrates from one device to another, allowing you to begin a book on a home PC, then pick up where you left off on a mobile device. For 2010, Blio will run on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile and iPhone operating systems. Prepare to be wowed. Free.


Nikon COOLPIX L110

One of the newest COOLPIX cameras from industry stalwart Nikon, the L110 is optimized for action shots, high-powered zoom and simple operation. A full-featured long-zoom camera at a great price, the COOLPIX L110 owes its versatility to its incredible 15x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens. Covering a focal length from a wide 28mm to 420mm super-telephoto, the lens’ broad focal range can capture everything from action photos to stunning landscapes. It also features Sport Continuous Mode, allowing you to capture the best highlights from the stands or the sidelines. The power-efficient L110 digital camera can shoot approximately 840 still images or record seven hours of HD video. Available in red or black. $279.95.


5BARz Road Warrior

Here’s another idea whose day has finally come: the first consumer-ready, portable plug-and-play cell signal booster. A winner of the International CES Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering Awards, the patent-pending 5BARz Road Warrior delivers full cell phone signal strength and up to 20 times faster Internet speeds (including 3G) in “dread” zones with the weakest network carrier coverage. The device can be used anywhere that power is available, including cars and hotel rooms. And unlike conventional, professional-grade cell phone boosters, the 5BARz Road Warrior requires no installation, external cables or antennas. $299.

IMAGINE SETTING SAIL IN AN EXOTIC, far-flung destination, just you and your family or group of friends aboard a private yacht. The sun warms the deck, a soft breeze dances off the water, and an über-attentive crew caters to your every whim while the personal chef whips up the finest of the local cuisine with all of your culinary preferences top of mind. All the while, the captain navigates the yacht into secluded coves; to pristine, seemingly undiscovered beaches; or even to the hottest spots along the coast for a night out on the town.

Parkway Bakery & Tavern Review

My husband, friends and I visited Parkway Bakery & Tavern on a recent trip to New Orleans. The restaurant is one of the most well-known for the city’s signature sandwich, the po’ boy. The restaurant doesn’t take reservations, so we arrived close to when it opened and braved the already-long line.
