Sonos PLAY
The Bluetooth speaker market is experiencing a renaissance, with several companies manufacturing portable sound machines at a great price. Sonos recently updated its line of tech-minded PLAY speakers. Unlike most Bluetooth speakers, Sonos devices connect to each other using the existing WiFi network, allowing users to control music from any source on any device in their home using the Sonos app. The speakers can be stereo paired, and now you can tune the sound to fit your room with Trueplay, Sonos’ recent software update for its app. By utilizing the iPhone’s internal microphone, Trueplay measures the acoustics of the room and automatically tweaks the speaker sound. $199–499.

Microsoft Surface Book
With the Surface Pro in its fourth generation, Microsoft aims to revamp its line of laptop/tablet hybrids with the flagship Surface Book. The machine runs Windows 10 out of the box, which looks beautiful on the 13.5-inch screen, though the 3:2 aspect ratio appears a little jarring at first. The dimensions, a bit taller than most laptop screens, feel more natural when using the device as a tablet. Use your fingers on the detachable screen or try the new Surface Pen, which now features a resistive tip for more natural writing, an eraser for easy editing and a button to activate Microsoft’s intelligent personal assistant, Cortona. $1,499.

Roku 4
Apple TV and Google Chromecast get a lot of media coverage, but the Roku 4 earns praise as the best set-top box currently available. Believe it or not, Roku actually released the first on-demand streaming box, the Roku DVP, back in 2008. The box didn’t include HD or even access to the entire Netflix library, but the company has come a long way. Roku 4 now offers 4K support and features more than 3,000 channels and apps, including Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, Amazon Prime, YouTube, GoPro and more. $129.99.

Magna Pars-L’Hotel à Parfum Review

Navigli is Milan’s current “it” neighborhood, a quick tram or train ride from the Duomo, the oft-photographed Quadrilatero della Moda shopping, museums, chain stores and throngs of tourists. While it has the youthful vibe and artist-chic found in formerly industrial neighborhoods in major cities around the globe, it’s not every day you’ll find such a district that has reinvented itself as a Venice that’s wholly defined by the stylish and tech-savvy locals who live, work and play there. It is both photogenic and approachable, while also tapping into the current sustainability zeitgeist.
