techMotorola ATRIX 4G
Billed as the world’s most powerful smartphone, the ATRIX 4G was first unveiled to widespread acclaim at CES. Motorola’s revolutionary webtop application changes mobile computing forever by dramatically boosting the already formidable power of the smartphone. Its webtop application runs a full Mozilla Firefox 3.6 browser and supports Adobe Flash Player to open up all the rich graphics, animations and video on the web. While in the webtop application, you can run Android applications in a window, browse your favorite websites with the full Firefox desktop browser, send instant messages and make phone calls, all at the same time. Motorola ATRIX 4G includes a dual core processor with each core running at 1 GHz, delivering up to 2 GHz of processing power. It also runs Android 2.2, with access to more than 100,000 apps and games in the Android Market. The ATRIX 4G even features the AT&T U-verse Mobile application, which lets you schedule recordings and download and watch hit TV shows on your phone. And a Batman-esque biometric fingerprint reader keeps this little powerhouse safe and secure. Available exclusively to AT&T customers.

Samsung Sliding PC 7 Series
Another CES debut, this nifty computer is high-tech guru Samsung’s first sliding tablet PC equipped with the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system and powered by the upcoming Intel Atom processor platform, currently codenamed “Oak Trail.” The PC 7 Series maximizes the benefits of a tablet PC with its compact, 2.2-pound design; and it incorporates a sliding keyboard for easy typing, enhanced productivity and top performance. The display slides up to reveal a physical keyboard, giving you the option of a multi-touch display or full keyboard and mouse interface. Additionally, the built-in webcam and audio speaker make the 7 Series ideal for video communication with family, friends and co-workers across the globe. And in a nod to green thinking, an innovative Eco Light Sensor conserves energy and adjusts screen brightness based on available ambient light, allowing the 7 Series to last for up to eight hours. Available in 32GB or 64GB starting this month. Available in March 2011 starting at $699.

GE DV1 HD Digital Video Camera
Colorful, rugged and pocket-sized, this user-friendly debut from GE is the perfect companion for your next vacation. Designed for simple one-hand operation, it records in high-definition 1080p-quality video with the touch of a button. The built-in USB arm flips out, making it simple to upload and share videos and photos on any computer instantly, while the built-in HDMI jack offers full HD output and easy connection to HD- compatible TVs. And given that it’s waterproof to 16 feet and shockproof to five feet, it’s clearly ready for action. Available in five splashy colors — lime green, aqua blue, citrus orange, red velvet and graphite gray — and equipped with a 2.5-inch LCD monitor, it’s high style at a low price. $129.99.

Aegis Padlock
Designed specifically with business travelers in mind, this 750GB storage drive packs a wallop: It uses 256-bit AES hardware encryption, which encrypts all data on the drive in real time. “Data at Rest Protection” ensures that all PINS and encryption keys are encrypted even when the drive is at rest; these features combine to safeguard your data even if the drive is dismantled. It can also be used on any operating system and requires no software to install. To access the drive, you simply use a unique six-digit PIN. Apricorn’s Brute Force Self Destruct feature protects the drive from hacking attempts by blocking automated attempts to enter PIN numbers. If the Padlock senses it is being systematically attacked, it will destroy the encryption key and lock the drive, keeping your data safe. Very James Bond, no? $199

Mix Work and Play in Bangkok

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors. Today, however, a Thai massage is considered an activity that improves one’s physical and mental well-being. The city has shed its former reputation as a place of wild nightlife and decadence, over the past few decades emerging as a major center for international commerce, wellness initiatives and tourism.
