The latest on-the-go digital travel innovations.
The new origami-inspired Joby Gorillamobile Ori for iPad ($80; joby.com) is made from super-light aluminum and has multiple hinges so you can adjust the viewing angle to practically any position.
The recently launched TKTS App ($0.99; tdf.org/tktsapp; iPhone, Android) lets you access real-time listings of its same-day discounted Broadway and off-Broadway shows without having to brave Times Square.
Clocking in at just under three pounds, the Samsung 9 Series laptop ($1,599; samsung.com) is featherweight, thin, and, with its race car–inspired curves, ultrachic. It’s also powerful with a top-of-the-line Intel processor.
The expanding Kindle for the Web (amazon.com) means that anyone with a Web browser can buy and read books—no app necessary—and any site (blogs included) can be a Kindle portal.
