GOTENNA MESH SMS AND GPS DEVICE
Ideal for camping trips or traveling into the wilds, these SMS and GPS dongles let you text on phones and share locations without data or WiFi. The GoTenna system works over a range of three miles, a bit like a modern walkie-talkie system, and is compatible with Android and iOS devices. An accompanying app also lets you download maps that can be used offline, a boon in areas without a signal. $179.

ANKER NEBULA CAPSULE SMART PORTABLE PROJECTOR
Whether you’re beaming a presentation onto the wall at an impromptu meeting or relaxing with a film at the end of a long day, a portable projector is a great purchase for a traveling executive. It’s lightweight and shaped like a Coke can for portability, plus it will run four hours on a full charge. The Nebula Capsule also has its own HDMI port and an Android operating system, meaning it can be controlled via remote control without connecting to a laptop. However, an accompanying mobile app makes everything even easier. $319.99.

PALM MINI SMARTPHONE
The original Palm brand was a big deal in mobile technology before it went out of business. Now, a new company revives the name for this mini companion phone. With a tiny handset not much bigger than a credit card, the new Palm is designed to share your existing number but with fewer features than a primary smartphone. It helps people disconnect when they’re traveling with family and friends without worrying about missing a vital call, plus its waterproof feature makes it great for outdoor adventures. Available exclusively on Verizon in conjunction with a smartphone plan. $349.

XENVO PRO LENS KIT
If you’re tight for space in your pack and can’t fit in a standalone camera with all of its accessories, this camera lens kit will give your smartphone a considerable boost in terms of image quality. It lets you get a great shot of that amazing sunset you’re watching and works just as well on close-ups of small objects. Not bad for a device small enough to fit in your pocket. For iPhone or Android. $35.

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.

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.
