1. Editor's Note: Summer's Best Tech Toys

Summer's all about the freedom to indulge in your favorite outdoor activities, take trips to your favorite places, or reconnect with friends and family. But consumers and tech pros now expect -- even demand -- that when pursuing their personal passions, they remain connected -- to their music, their e-mail, their cell service, and more.

As we transition into the summer season, we've got 28 hot new gadgets that will afford just this level of uninterrupted connectivity. A couple of highlights:

  • A VoIP handset that stores in a slot inside your laptop, charging while it's docked.

  • A portable all-in-one device featuring video recorder/player, TV input/output, PC Webcam, digital camera, MP3 player, and much more.

  • Cases that protect your smartphone from the elements and assorted mishaps while still allowing you to use the phone's voice, e-mail, Net access, and other functions through the case.

  • An iPod dock and 10-watt amplifier and speaker for an indoor/outdoor electric grill.
  • We hope you discover at least one gadget that meets a pressing need as we roll into summer.
