Tunebug Shake

Listen up! A cool idea that’s long overdue, this speaker mounts to a helmet, creating a fantastic audio experience that lets your favorite bikers, skiers or snowboarders enjoy music while still being aware of their surroundings. It easily connects to iPods, MP3 players and mobile phones wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. Powered by a LiPoly battery with five hours of playtime, it comes with a USB charge cable, two mounting harnesses and an audio cable. $99.99.

Zoom Q3 HD Handy Video Recorder

This brand-new gadget makes a great stocking-stuffer for those in the know: It’s the only handheld to record both HD video and HD audio (24-bit/96kHz), transforming home movies, live musical performances, sporting events or travel videos into truly immersive movies that look and sound hyper-realistic. This “best in class” point-and-shoot features both full HD 1080p at 30 frames per second and 720p at 30 or 60 fps. Zoom’s exclusive “Concert Lighting” setting allows the camera to capture clear, detailed videos, even in light-intensive environments that would cause most camcorders to wash out. A new, icon-based user interface makes the Q3 HD easy and intuitive: Turn it on its side to watch videos in 16:9 format on its color LCD screen or use the built-in HDMI port for output to your HDTV. The Q3 HD also has a built-in USB 2.0 cable to transfer, view and edit your movies on your PC or Mac. $299.99.

Each SITi earphone is individually machined from a solid piece of high-density copper alloy, coated in titanium and outfitted with a neodymium 9mm driver and noise-isolating SiliconeHollowPoints. Available in equally chic dark silver and deep gold, they come with replacement tips. $159.

FanVision

The perfect present for the diehard football fan who has everything, this wireless handheld device streams live football on a digital TV channel, letting you take the game in your own hands and watch every play up close, right as it happens. Granted, it works only within the stadium, but it sure beats paying the price for front-row seats. FanVision allows you to view instant replays from multiple angles and provides access to out-of-town games selected by your team as well as the NFL Red Zone Channel, fantasy football updates, exclusive highlight reels — even a cheerleader cam! A sharp 4.3-inch screen and six-hour battery life let you watch the whole game clearly and vividly, even in bright daylight. Already more than a dozen NFL teams have signed on — visit the website to see if your team is one of them. $199 (introductory price).

Krakow’s Old Town Charms with Stunning Beauty, Museums and Great Food

A stop in Krakow would not be complete without a visit to the Lady with an Ermine, a Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece, said to be second only to the Mona Lisa. One of four extant Da Vinci portraits, it depicts a young woman, mistress of Ludovico Sforza, embracing an outsize ermine thought to be a reference to Ludovico’s nickname “the white ermine.” The national treasure is a highlight of the significant collection in the city’s Czartoryski Museum, the country’s oldest, comprising three historical buildings: a 19th-century monastery, the 16th-century Municipal Arsenal and the neo-Gothic Palace built in the 19th century for the prominent noble Czartoryski family whose ancestor, Princess Izabela, founded the museum in 1796.
