The WildCharger

Imagine charging your laptop and portable electronic devices without unraveling a tangle of cords and searching (often in vain) for an available power outlet in your hotel room. The whizzes at WildCharge have developed a revolutionary product using electromagnetic induction that lets you do just that. The WildCharger is a flat, thin, wire-free charging pad capable of delivering up to 90 watts of power — enough to simultaneously charge and power most laptop computers and a range of small devices placed anywhere on its surface. (The WildCharger Mini provides almost 15 watts of power for up to four small devices.) Simply put, it’s true full-power, wire-free electricity for the mobile consumer. How cool is that? $100.

Speed Trio TV5

This handheld entertainment center combines a movie player, video recorder, MP3 player, and 5-megapixel digital camera into one nifty, versatile package that won’t break the bank. It supports MP3, WMA, WMV, ASF and WAV formats, and comes equipped with 512 megabytes of built-in memory (expandable to 2 gigabytes with an SD card). A built-in surround-sound feature provides a rich listening experience. Bottom line: The TV5 boasts lots of features and functionality for a fraction of the cost of many media players. $119.

iGo Stowaway Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard The Bluetooth revolution is gaining converts left and right — and there’s no shortage of devices aimed at making working on the go easier than ever. Enter this perfectly portable, practical keyboard from iGo, ideal for extensive emailing and typing. The Stowaway boasts a Qwerty keyboard with four full-size rows, yet folds up into a convenient case ands weighs in at less than six ounces. It’s sure to make your smartphone seem even smarter — and will take up much less space than your laptop on your next flight. $149.99. (www.iGo.com)

The Tornado

While it’s virtually impossible to keep up with the lightning pace of computer innovation, replacing your home computer with the Next Big PC just became a whole lot easier. This nifty gizmo from Data Drive Thru, a standout at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, lets you transfer data between two computers in a snap — with no additional software or pesky computer experts involved. Just connect both computers via the Tornado’s USB cables and watch as the contents of both hard drives are displayed in split-screen format. Then simply drag and drop files or entire directories from one computer to the other. Better yet, sit back and let the kids take care of it. $59.95. (www.buythetornado.com)

Indulge in the Seductive Splendor Bora Bora

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
