New High-Tech Tools For Spring

Apr 1, 2012
2012 / April 2012

Samsung Galaxy Note

Bigger than a smartphone, smaller than a tablet … it’s the latest showstopper from tech titan Samsung. The Galaxy Note is equipped with a 5.3-inch display with HD Super AMOLED technology, a high-resolution screen for bright, colorful viewing. The S Pen tool delivers fast, responsive and precise control to create fine lines and detail on the device display, much like an ink pen and paper; and S Memo, a multimedia application, captures content created by the S Pen. Combine pictures, voice recordings, typed text, handwritten notes and drawings via a single application, and then convert it all to a memo and share. An easy screen-capture function lets you save any screen, which you can personalize with the S Pen. A zippy 1.5GHz dual-core processor makes the Galaxy Note faster than a speeding bullet, while lightning-fast network speeds on AT&T’s 4G LTE ensure quick and seamless browsing. Available in carbon blue or ceramic white, exclusively through AT&T. $299.99 with two-year AT&T contracts.

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.
