IDAPT i4 Universal Charger
This sleek accessory charges up to four different mobile electronics simultaneously and is compatible with the iPad and iPhone 4, as well as 4,000 different mobile electronic devices including BlackBerry, Nintendo DS, PSP, digital cameras, GPS systems and Bluetooth products. With three charging ports and an additional USB charging port to meet all charging needs, it features an interchangeable tip system, making it completely customizable. Available in black, white or silver, it includes six of the most popular tips: miniUSB, microUSB, iPod/iPhone, Samsung 4, Nokia 2 and Sony Ericsson 2. $59.99.

Tumi Travel Workout Player
Step away from the hotel buffet and put that workout gear on, pronto! From the travel aficionados at Tumi comes this nifty gizmo that makes staying fit on the road a cinch. The lightweight, compact, clip-on device includes a pedometer with 3D motion analysis, heart rate monitor, stopwatch, 4GB MP3 player and FM radio. It also comes with earbud headphones and a USB cable. Now get stepping! $165.

LG Mobile Digital Television and DVD Player
This is not your run-of-the-mill portable DVD player, no sir. This gizmo also picks up mobile DTV reception, so you can watch TV when in range of a digital signal — even in the back seat of a car or zipping along on a high-speed train. The 7-inch screen can be tilted to your preferred viewing angle, and when not in use the clamshell-style screen folds down and the device shrinks to about 9.5 inches by 6.5 inches — the size of a small hardback book. It plays DVD movie discs and audio CDs, displays JPG photos and plays WMA music files from its USB 2.0 connection. Equipped with two headphone jacks so you can tune in with a friend, it also boasts both AC and auto power adaptors, a remote control and a removable battery that powers the device for up to 4.5 hours, 2.5 hours in TV mode. $249.99.

Jorno Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard
This foldable Bluetooth keyboard turns your iPhone, iPad or Android into a fully functioning laptop — how cool is that? Bluetooth connectivity lets you pair the keyboard with your mobile device and position the keyboard anywhere you like. It folds down to the size of a deck of cards to easily fit in your pocket or bag, and includes a detachable cradle to hold your device in either portrait or landscape orientation. The keyboard, with keys that are only 15 percent smaller than a standard model, is also rigid when unfolded, allowing you to type in your lap. $79. (Special pre-order price; available in early 2011.)

Global Gateway

SINCE ABOUT 2000, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been the busiest airport not only in the United States but also in the world. Each year more than 100 million passengers pass through the gateway, so it only makes sense the airport continues to evolve.

Piedmont Paradise

DON’T EXPECT TURIN TO FIT your image of Italy. It’s Italian, all right — the evening passeggiata and a love of good food and wine are alive and well. But you’ll look in vain for medieval cobbled streets, crumbling castles and works by Michelangelo (who never set foot here). Instead, although you’ll find some Roman ruins, you’ll also find a faux medieval village, a world-class film museum and a café life that rivals Vienna’s. You and your family will have fun here.

Shanghai: Night Vibes

DURING THE 1920S AND ’30S, Shanghai was known as the Paris of the Orient — glamorous and decadent with a vibrant nightlife. A century later, Shanghai still parties hard. Most bars and clubs stay open until 3 a.m.; some don’t close their doors until 5 a.m.
