SanDisk's new $199 4-Gbyte SD High Capacity card<< STORAGE GALORE
SanDisk's new $199 4-Gbyte SD High Capacity card comes bundled with its MicroMate USB 2.0 reader and is capable of storing more than 2,000 high-res pictures, 1,000 digital songs, and up to eight hours of MPEG-4 video. Few manufacturers support the new SDHC standard, but SanDisk says that will change because the 2.0 spec was developed by the SD Association and will become more popular.

Scott eVest's Performance TNO AVERAGE T >>
Scott eVest's Performance T ($30 short sleeve, $35 long sleeve) isn't your father's T-shirt. Made of 3M Quick Dry moisture-wicking fabric, this T keeps you cool even in the summer heat. The shoulder pocket has a nice deep well to accommodate a cell phone or music player. A weight management system--a panel across the shoulders spreads the load--keeps you comfy.

Archos 104 digital audio player<< BIG SOUND FOR LESS
The Archos 104 digital audio player offers lots of bang for the buck. A 4-Gbyte model with a crisp, 1.5-inch color display runs just $160. It features Windows-like navigation and balanced and clear sound quality. Another admirable feature is the ability to listen to changes in how the music sounds as you select the preset equalizer settings or create custom equalizer settings. The device supports subscription sites, including Yahoo Music Unlimited and AOL Music Now.

Picture a device the size of a large paperback book that replaces your PDA, MP3 player, media player, portable game device, notebook computer, and even your phone. This is what the designers at Samsung had in mind when they created the $1,099 Q1 Ultra Mobile PC. The Q1 has a nice feel and measures about 9 by 5-1/2 by 1 inch. It's fully loaded, with a generous 40-Gbyte hard drive, a 7-inch WVGA touch LCD screen with an auto-scale feature, two USB ports, and more.

Yahoo's Trip Planner<< HAPPY TRAILS
Yahoo's Trip Planner lets you document your travels with photos, journals, ratings, reviews, and interactive maps. The tool includes personalized formats for journals with text and photos, simple search functions, and an interactive map with top trip plans. Other features include Web clipping and tagging, a recommendation engine from Yahoo Travel Guides, community feedback, and collaborative editing.

Two other perks: extraordinary battery life and a $399 price tag.
