If you are looking to connect your Windows 10 tablet to your hotel room's TV, get the new Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter.

Just plug the USB and HDMI connectors from the Wireless Display Adapter into the TV or monitor, then mirror or extend your screen, to enjoy a bigger view. The adapter uses Miracast technology, so you will be able to stream anything that is displayed on devices that support this technology.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1



The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1 is the portable Bluetooth speaker you need when you venture into the great outdoors. Designed to take bumps and scrapes, it is splash- and dust-resistant, with a battery life rated at 24hr.

The Beoplay A1 delivers crisp and sharp audio, thanks to its cone mid-woofer, a silk dome tweeter and advanced digital signal processing filter.

Samsung KS9000

From $5,199

Samsung's latest KS9000 Curved SUHD TV features the world's only cadmium-free 10-bit Quantum dot display that is said to achieve 1,000-nit high dynamic range for vibrant colours and contrast. And it has such a thin bezel that pictures seem to float in a darkened room. It comes in 55-inch ($5,199) and 65-inch ($7,199) variants, while the 78-inch model (pricing not confirmed) will be released by the end of next month.

Need a battery case for your iPhone 6 or 6s? Consider the slim Mophie juice pack reserve.

It is equipped with a 1,840mAh rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery that is said to add 8.4hr of talk time, or 6.6hr of Web browsing time, to your iPhone.

Yet, this battery case adds only 7.9mm of thickness and 75g of weight to your iPhone, while offering edge-to-edge protection for your phone.

Unveiled early last year, the Razer Turret keyboard and mouse combo is finally here. Designed for use in the living room, both accessories feature dual wireless connectivity, so they can connect to your game console via Bluetooth or to a PC via a bundled wireless 2.4GHz USB adapter.

The Razer Turret's gaming-grade keyboard has an ultra-slim form factor designed to be used on your lap, as well as a highly precise gaming mouse with a 3,500 DPI sensor and an integrated magnetic mouse mat.
