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.

SITi by MUNITIO Earphones

These show-stopping SITi (standard issue titanium) beauties will be music to the ears of your favorite audiophile this holiday. Engineered to provide a superior listening experience within a one-of-a-kind bullet casing design, they offer a tight, low and thundering bass and accurate, enveloping sound. 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).

Germany Discusses Doubling Air Travel Tax

In response to climate change, Germany’s Christian Democrats proposed doubling taxes on domestic flights to reduce CO2 emissions. The plan would exempt connecting flights (part of long-haul trips) so the impact would only be on the current tax of $8.10 per ticket for domestic flights.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
