Electrolux Perfect Steam Electric Dryer
It seems just about anything can be improved with a digital upgrade. The latest household appliance to receive the “smart” treatment is the Electrolux Perfect Steam Electric Dryer. Even without the bells and whistles, it’s an impressive dryer, handling an 8-pound load in less than an hour, though you’ll appreciate its various tech features. If someone leaves the room in the middle of a load, it automatically turns on the extended tumble to prevent wrinkling. If you prefer to line dry, there’s a button for damp alert to let you know when the load is ready for hanging. $1,199.
Invoxia is known for its teleconferencing equipment, but the company is looking to enter your family’s kitchen with the Triby, a multitasking device that integrates with Amazon Alexa. With a magnet on its back, the Triby becomes a high-tech notepad on your refrigerator.

Microsoft Office 2016
Microsoft revamped its latest version of its Office Suite software to be the most collaborative edition ever. Like Windows 10, the slew of programs is made to work on both desktop and mobile, but 2016 brings a whole new element of teamwork. Instead of emailing documents back and forth, your files now live on a cloud, which enables real-time co-authoring similar to Google Docs. If one of your team members makes a mistake, a window for version history lets you work from a previous draft. $149.99.
Roku Streaming Stick
Roku’s updated Streaming Stick is the smallest and cheapest device for video streaming. It’s also one of the fastest, sporting a quad-core processor that actually feels faster than the company’s flagship Roku 4 and Amazon’s competing Fire TV Stick. Compared to Apple TV and Chromecast, the Streaming Stick holds its own with more apps and customizing options available. It doesn’t matter if you have Netflix, Vudi or Amazon Video — just plug it in and be entertained. $49.99.

I was part of a group of travelers attending the Hamad International Airport Expansion presentation in Doha. Most arrived the day before, but due to a family commitment, I arrived the following day. A driver picked me up at the airport and drove me to the sleek and modern Mondrian Doha, designed by Marcel Wanders of the Netherlands. The 270-room property was the first sbe hotel in the Middle East. My luggage was scanned and put aside for a hand check and the guard removed the little sleep sound device I use to cover city noise when I sleep and travel. “No speakers allowed,” the guard said, but once I explained what the item was he allowed me to take it. From there, check-in was swift, and I received a packet of information about dinner and the week’s agenda.
