Apple iPhone SE
Apple bucked the trend of bigger and bigger smartphones, listening to customer demands by releasing the iPhone SE. It essentially packs the guts of a 6s inside the body of a 5s, with 3D Touch the only sacrifice. The design features updated chamfered edges and now comes in silver, black, gold and rose gold. It even improves upon the battery life of the 6s thanks to its smaller 4-inch screen. $399.

ZUS Smart Car Charger
Car chargers aren’t the most fashionable smartphone accessories, but Nonda redefines the product with its ZUS Smart Car Charger. Not only does it charge two devices through your car’s lighter port, it does it in less than half the time. Nonda built the ZUS to recognize most electronic gadgets and deliver the maximum amount of charge they can take. If that’s not enough, ZUS also doubles as a location device. Paired with a smartphone app, ZUS automatically records your location when you turn off the car, allowing you to find it without any network connection — even sending you a notification when you are within 500 feet of your car. $29.99.

Logitech’s 650 features a color LCD screen, an ergonomic design and the ability to access up to five devices through an internet-connected PC. With plenty of customization options, you can personalize the remote through five programmable buttons and support for user macros. Logitech also packs a motion sensor inside to put it in sleep mode when not in use. $79.99.

Look for Unique Museums Filled with Fascinating Artifacts Wherever you Travel

Museums beckon wherever we go. They amuse and enlighten travelers and bring to public attention historical, artistic, scientific and natural wonders. Most are thought-provoking and educational, stretching our minds and our knowledge of the world. Some, however, stand out as just plain quirky: personal and sometimes whimsical collections, museums dedicated to a unique skill or long- forgotten industry, arcane collections originally designed for scientific study. Others devote their space to sharing a subject that represents one person’s consuming passion.
