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.

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.

The installation process takes place on its smartphone app, a much easier process than purchasing your own setup.

As a native of the Philadelphia region, I’m quite familiar with the drive in and out of the City of Brotherly Love. Even as the city’s skyline continually transforms, my favorite views of Philadelphia have always been along Boathouse Row, with the Philadelphia Museum of Art rising in the background, before looping around the museum to the flag-lined Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Home to many of Philadelphia’s incredible and world-renowned museums, the Fairmount neighborhood is fittingly aesthetically pleasing and practically synonymous with fine art.

It’s not even 9a.m. in the sleepy fishing village of Rawai on Thailand’s famous Phuket Island, but already the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea swarm with local fishermen casting their lines and releasing their nets from the bows of rustic long-tail boats. The scents of lemongrass, incense and sweet pandan leaves season the air as the villagers slowly rise from their beachside bungalows to start their day. In just a few more hours, the fishermen will return with their catches, filling the stalls of the iconic Rawai Seafood Market with buckets of shellfish and displays of fresh filets. Visitors line up each afternoon for the catch of the day, selecting their fish with care before hauling their purchases across the well-worn road to the restaurants opposite the market to have the fish cooked for 100 Thai baht per kilo.
