July 16, 2014 by  

The SCOTTEVEST SeV Lola Jacket recently arrived on my doorstep, a very soft and and lightweight jacket with 17 pockets — yes 17. It’s a great option for women travelers who want something lightweight they can pack for colder travel months. In addition to the 17 pockets, which are customized so you can pack all of your travel amenities and gadgets you need on the road, there are other great features to the jacket.   Rather than having to prioritize what will fit in the two side pockets that most alternatives offer, SCOTTEVEST jackets pockets are sectioned off inside with places to store everything you could possibly need on the road. The jacket comes in three fun colors – Sparkle (light grey), Rhapsody (purple blue), and Fluff (a bright white). The pattern is quilted honeycomb nylon outer with Polyfill for extra warmth and the interior and zip plackets are lined in contrasting yellow color. Imagine having access to things you use frequently without having to carry a bulky day bag or purse, such as lip balm, phone, camera, gloves, credit card, keys, wallet, phone, earbuds , sunglasses, pen, notebooks (inside the small PadPocket which is included) and more.…

Magellan GPS RoadMate Boasts EasyTouch Screens + Android OS Support

June 26, 2014 by  

There’s nothing easier than taking a road trip with a GPS system which can do all the work for you. I’ve been checking out the Magellan RoadMate Automotive PND GPS system, which features EasyTouch Screens and now supports the Android OS. The RoadMate Personal Navigation Device (PND) units also include traffic and lifetime maps for a more powerful navigation experience. The EasyTouch screens react to even the softest of finger touches, which is a nice feature given how unresponsive my last GPS unit was to the “touch.”  It comes equipped with many premium features such as landmark guidance, PhantomALERT, junction view, and free lifetime traffic alerts and map updates. All of this data helps drivers when they’re on long road trips make critical driving decisions and get to where they want to go quickly and efficiently.  In addition to the built-in PND/GPS technology and DVR (Digital Video Recorder) capabilities of the dashcam, the newer units out can also handle a wireless back-up camera. The RoadMate 6230T-LM can display either where they are headed on the PND map, or what the live camera feed(s) immediately ahead or behind them are showing. DVR capabilities…

Jam Audio Wireless Speakers, Where Fun & Hip Colors Meet Convenience

June 20, 2014 by  

The Jam Audio Speakers are a great line of speakers that are ideal for travelers. Unlike so many wireless speaker lines that simply offer white, black and gray, the Jam guys offer a wide range of speakers in fun, creative colors. They’re also convenient, and by convenient, I mean, they’re compact, easy to carry around and one is even waterproof so you can bring it in the shower or to the beach with you. The Plus Bluetooth Speakers let you pair two for true stereo sound, allowing you to connect wirelessly, up to 30 feet away from your Bluetooth friendly device without the need for cords to tie you down. Battery life is decent also, with rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that deliver up to six hours of wireless play before you need to charge them up again. They are $59.99 and come in a variety of really run colors, including purple, pink, blue, yellow and silver. I have them in purple and silver, silver ideal for putting somewhere in the living room or bedroom, purple, more fun for on-the-go or to use with kids. At the same price point, Jam XT

ShaveMate Razors Load Shaving Cream Inside, Saving Luggage Space & Weight for Travelers

June 12, 2014 by  

ShaveMate, Titan, Diva, all-in-one simplify your shaving, a godsend when you’re on the road. We recently tried out the ShaveMate razors, and here’s what we love:
  • The beautiful curves
  • Great style and design, in other words, not your ordinary razar
  • Nice, clean and smooth shave
  • Comes in black for men or a fun pink for women
  • 6 precision razors means a much closer shave
  • Flex-neck, making it easier to use
  • Shaving cream loaded inside – this is the unique thing we got excited about with the razor and the reason we thought it would be a great option for travelers. It comes loaded with a week (or possibly more depending on how much you use) of shaving cream, making it lighter and easier to carry on the road.
They also have a unique offering where you can save through becoming a member. You simply choose to become a Club ShaveMate Member by selecting one of their razor models — either Diva or Titan and select the quantity level. Pick 3, 6, or 12 month supply then create an account with your billing and shipping details. Then, their team ships you your 3, 6, or 12 month supply

Behind the Scenes of Musement and Life in Berlin

June 9, 2014 by  

I have traveled through Europe quite a bit over the past few years and over that time, I have probably visited close to a hundred museums. During my semester living and studying in London, I made it a point to see all that the city had to offer and museums were definitely on my list. That was in 2008 and there wasn’t a great method for purchasing entrance tickets ahead of time, or at least, I didn’t know of any. I usually bought tickets the day of and hoped that my student discount would save me a few pounds. That was then and this is now. A few weeks ago I discovered Musement, a site that allows you to find and book handpicked tours, tickets to local attractions, museums, art exhibits and city passes around the world. Right now, their main markets are in big cities throughout Europe like Berlin, London, Madrid, Barcelona but also right here in New York. Besides a clean interface that is easy to navigate, I found the images inspiring and it really got me pumped for my trip to Hamburg and Berlin, which I just came back from. I’m often on a budget when I travel and the fact that…

100 Top Mac Apps We Happen to Love

June 7, 2014 by  

Despite all the great reviews Macintosh computers have garnered over the years, we rarely see it stated that Apple’s groundbreaking platform has attracted some of the best designed software on the market today. In fact, we would venture to say that with few exceptions the Mac offers the best possible software for the task at hand.
And that’s from a former Windows user. This bias is partly due to the fact that Apple was first on the market with an integrated smartphone design, pointing the way for Mac developers to create seamless synchronization solutions. But the real story is that the innovation the Macintosh GUI ushered in will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year. Here are our picks for the coolest Mac software:
