Scanjet

HP Scanjet Professional 1000 Mobile Scanner

Hot from the high-tech presses at HP comes the venerable brand’s first mobile scanner, designed to capture documents on the spot — in the office, at a customer site and even on the road. With the ability to scan a variety of paper sizes and mediums, including embossed cards, it lets you digitize documents nearly anywhere and on the go. Complemented by a comprehensive software suite — which includes Nuance PaperPort to convert scans into editable files and the NewSoft Presto! BizCard Reader, which scans and organizes business cards — it’s ideal for keeping tabs on contracts, forms, receipts and business cards away from the office. Powered solely by a PC USB 2.0 port, the scanner weighs less than two pounds and comes with a carrying case for maximum portability. $249.


nook eReader

Arguably the most buzzed-about player in the ereader market, Barnes & Noble’s nook marries innovative technology and sleek minimalist design with access to the book behemoth’s digital store of over 1 million ebooks, newspapers and magazines — and can store up to 1,500 of them with its 2GB of internal storage. Nook’s color touch-screen for navigation, along with a best-in-class E Ink display, make ereading enjoyable (and pretty, too!). Equipped with both free AT&T 3G wireless and WiFi access, including free WiFi connectivity and exclusive content and promotions in Barnes & Noble stores. $259.


SanDisk 32 GB Memory Card

Introducing the world’s highest-capacity removable memory card for mobile phones. The highly versatile 32GB SanDisk microSDHC card delivers immediate memory expansion that lets you pack an unprecedented amount of photos, videos, music and data in your handset. How much? For example, the card can store enough music to outlast 35 round-trip flights between San Francisco and New York before repeating a single song. Now you just have to find the time to download them. $199.99.


Powermat Portable 2x

When it comes to charging your devices, it doesn’t get much cooler — or easier — than this portable powerhouse. Just plug your run-down gadget into the Powermat 2x’s Powercube universal receiver, place the receiver and your gadget on the mat and — presto! — the rejuicing begins. (You can also purchase dedicated receivers separately for common devices like BlackBerrys and iPhones, allowing you to charge them directly on the mat without the Powercube.) Embedded into the mat is a high-capacity battery which lets you charge two gizmos at once without the need to plug the mat into an outlet. The mat also folds into a sleek carrying case and comes with a set of international plugs. You’ll never have to waste time untangling cords of your various chargers again — hooray! $80.

Workshop Kitchen + Bar Review

Palm Springs became a destination of legend when Hollywood’s biggest and brightest during cinema’s “Golden Age” turned the desert community into their glamourous backyard. While restaurants and hotels epitomizing definitive Palm Springs luxury open, adapt and change with the times, it says something that one of its hottest restaurants sets up an outpost back in Los Angeles. And that’s exactly what chef Michael Beckman and restaurateur Joe Mourani did on the southern tip of the always-evolving Fairfax District.
