TESLA MODEL X
Tesla makes established car companies nervous, having won the prestigious Golden Steering Wheel award for the Tesla Model X, or as the company calls it, “the future of the SUV.” The family-oriented vehicle has an eye for technology, seen in Tesla’s staple touchscreen console which connects to a variety of entertainment and information resources like Google Maps and Pandora. In addition to a basic autopilot mode, the Model X features auto-adjusting seats, environment sensors and the ability to go from 0 to 60 in just 3.2 seconds. The falcon-wing doors, on the other hand, are pretty but generally considered impractical. $74,000.

Roli Blocks

ROLI BLOCKS
Smartphones broke new ground for electronic musical instruments, introducing millions of budding artists to the intuitive magic of touchscreen synthesizers. The limits were soon reached by more demanding instrumentalists, realizing a hard glass surface is not conducive to music. Roli is one of many companies seeking to fix this, creating innovative devices easy to pick up yet complex enough to be expressive instruments. Roli Blocks can be your drum pad, clip launcher, synthesizer and arpeggiator, all in one handheld package. $179.95 and up.

Bose Soundtouch 300

BOSE SOUNDTOUCH 300
For a long time, consumers were stuck between stock television speakers and a full-on home theater system. Surround sound is cheaper than ever, but for people with small apartments and a lack of technical know-how, soundbars offer an attractive alternative. The Soundtouch 300 is made of sleek metal and glass, giving it a sharp look, especially under a large LCD. Bose’s 38.5-inch speaker comes with a wall mount and remote, but the best part is it fits right into an upgraded surround-sound system. $699.95.

Xbox One S

XBOX ONE S
Microsoft’s latest gaming console offers a major improvement over the Xbox One released three years ago, giving the Sony PlayStation 4 plenty of competition. It’s 40 percent smaller with a clean look and can also stand vertically, but most exciting is the implementation of 4K and HDR video, increasing screen resolution by 400 percent as well as picture quality. If you’re looking to play today, the console comes in a few bundles with Madden 17, Halo or Gears of War 4, but serious gamers might want to wait for Microsoft’s next-gen console, dubbed Project Scorpio, set for release in late 2017. $299 and up.

Host a Fabled Business Event in Wonderful Copenhagen

I imagine that when writer Hans Christian Andersen mused, “Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale,” he was standing at the edge of Copenhagen’s historic Tivoli Gardens, one of his favorite haunts, enlivened by the swirl of human happiness that surrounded him: children laughing; carousels spinning; games of chance played for prizes; lovers holding hands; hungry people whispering over sweets, hot drinks, beer and towering, open-faced smørrebrød, Denmark’s quintessential sandwich. That fairy tale lives on today at the second-oldest amusement park in the world, a spectacle of folly architecture, bakeries, gardens, rides, restaurants, puppet shows and joy ... and which also happens to be one of the city’s most storied places to convene for business.

I recently dined at Irwin’s in Philadelphia. The restaurant is located on the rooftop of the Bok Building, a former school turned collective of small businesses, non-profits, artist workshops, a bar and restaurant. I previously visited Bok for the bar and yoga classes, and I was excited to experience the restaurant.

La Concha Resort Puerto Rico Review

Arriving early afternoon in Puerto Rico, we jumped in an Uber and took a short, 15-minute drive from the airport to La Concha.  As it was Tuesday, the streets were not too busy and the hotel lobby was calm. During the weekend, the scene likely would have been more bustling. We were greeted by a staff member who requested proof of vaccination and government-issued ID, and were given a wristband to indicate we were fully vaccinated. All guests are required to be vaccinated and wear masks at all times while moving around the hotel. Hand sanitizer stations were placed around the lobby, in elevators and in each common area.
