Bose SIE2i Sport Headphones
Don’t you hate it when your earphones fall out when you’re running? Bose’s StayHear tips conform like a glove to your ears’ shape, so even during vigorous exercise they stay put, while hydrophobic acoustic cloth keeps moisture out but lets sound pass through. An inline remote offers convenient control over the music on your iPod or iPhone — no need to touch your device. There’s also an inline microphone for switching seamlessly between calls and music, and you even get a Reebok fitness armband that fits most smartphones and MP3 players. Available in four high-impact colors. $149.95.
iPort Charge Case and Stand
An all-in-one iPad case, charger and stand, this nifty gizmo — the first of its kind — makes a handy sidekick for your device. Featuring three different mounting angles ideal for FaceTime, movies or typing, it’s the first stand that lets you snap an Apple Smart Cover directly onto the magnetically equipped case. Two charging points — one on the long side and one on the short side — allow you to simultaneously use and wirelessly charge the tablet in either portrait or landscape mode. Think of it as a sleek iPad easel that does double duty. Compatible with iPad 4th Generation, Air, Mini and Mini with Retina display. $119.95 (iPad 4th Generation and iPad Air); $99.95 (iPad Mini and Mini with Retina).
Moonstone 9000mAh External Battery
There are a lot of power banks out there, but few are as easy on the eyes as this one. Light and portable, it boasts a shiny lacquered finish and rounded edges for sleek, chic appeal. Simply plug each device into one of the Moonstone’s dual USB charging ports (1.2A and 2.1A) and never be without power again. It’s more efficient than similar power banks (containing almost 3.5 full iPhone 5 charges) and compatible with a wide range of smartphones, computers, tablets and iPods. And at 3.2 inches by 3.2 inches by 0.7 inches and weighing 8 ounces, it’s ready to go anywhere. $39.99.
LG G Flex
The world’s first curved, flexible smartphone, the LG G Flex is emblematic of the seemingly never-ending innovation in mobile telephony. Its curved, 6-inch HD display helps reduce glare and provides a more cinematic viewing experience, while its 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and the fast-growing Sprint Spark LTE — or 4G — network enables peak data speeds of up to 60 Mbps to support a new generation of online gaming, virtual reality, advanced cloud services and other high-bandwidth applications. A dual-window feature even divides the screen into two separate applications for better multitasking — who can’t use help with that? $299.99 (plus taxes and surcharges, with a two-year service agreement; available exclusively through Sprint).

As a native of the Philadelphia region, I’m quite familiar with the drive in and out of the City of Brotherly Love. Even as the city’s skyline continually transforms, my favorite views of Philadelphia have always been along Boathouse Row, with the Philadelphia Museum of Art rising in the background, before looping around the museum to the flag-lined Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Home to many of Philadelphia’s incredible and world-renowned museums, the Fairmount neighborhood is fittingly aesthetically pleasing and practically synonymous with fine art.

It’s not even 9a.m. in the sleepy fishing village of Rawai on Thailand’s famous Phuket Island, but already the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea swarm with local fishermen casting their lines and releasing their nets from the bows of rustic long-tail boats. The scents of lemongrass, incense and sweet pandan leaves season the air as the villagers slowly rise from their beachside bungalows to start their day. In just a few more hours, the fishermen will return with their catches, filling the stalls of the iconic Rawai Seafood Market with buckets of shellfish and displays of fresh filets. Visitors line up each afternoon for the catch of the day, selecting their fish with care before hauling their purchases across the well-worn road to the restaurants opposite the market to have the fish cooked for 100 Thai baht per kilo.
