Gazing into the new MacBook Pro ($2,200) or iPad Mini ($350) is like opening your eyes for the very first time. The gadgets of tomorrow offer state-of-the-art retina display, making images so crisp they rival glossy magazine pages (like this). Flash storage makes tasks fluid and lighting fast.
Jumpstart your day with BeoTime ($410), the alarm clock that beckons you from slumber by turning on the television or radio and tuning to your favorite station. Doubling as a magic wand, it turns off lights and late-night reruns and energizes the morning ritual.
It upped the ante in Sex in the City and The Devil Wears Prada, and it can do the same for you. Bang and Olufsen’s iconic BeoCom 2 ($1,100) combines sleek design and functionality into a singular must-have. It controls the volume of everything, allowing you to answer calls in style.
