The Sony RX100 series is THE gold standard for compact cameras. It's so good that the original model from 2012 still trumps most NEW point-and-shoot cameras under $300 in 2018. Despite the release of the 6th edition in 2018, I think the RX100 III (2014 model) is still the best for most people. The II added WiFi/NFC, tilt screen and a hotshoe, but the Mark III removed the hotshoe in favor of a pop-up EVF, a faster lens and the new Bionz X processor . At $650, it's half the price of the RX100 VI.
The Basilisk is designed for FPS games in mind with one of the best 16k DPI optical sensors in an ergonomic form factor for superior comfort. Its key features: rubberized thumb rest, a removable DPI switcher, and customizable scroll-wheel resistance. At $55, for the overall specs, tracking accuracy and wide options for customization, this one is hard to beat, and that's why it's PC Mag's top Editor's Choice (Aug 2018). Unfortunately, it's for righties only...
I love Apple products, and though my primary laptop is Windows-powered (for gaming), I own the full trifecta: iPhone X, AirPods and the Apple Watch Series 3 . When Apple announced the AirPower in September 2017, I was excited to be able to charge all my Apple devices on a single powermat. As of September 14, 2018, I'm still waiting...
The AAXA M6 is a portable business projector capable of full HD 1080p resolution. It's slightly bigger than my open palm, and at 2.1 lbs, it's still quite portable. It supports a plethora of ports: HDMI, VGA, audio-in, mini-SD slot, and USB. While it's not the brightest projector, its 1,200 lumens is bright enough for a 50-60" picture in most environs. The built-in battery is good for up to 90 minutes, so it won't last through a full feature film. The 2-watt speaker is decent. $599.
Numero 28 is a new chain of pizzerias (six locations in NYC as of Aug 2018) that serve authentic Neapolitan pizzas baked hot and fast in a brick oven using a recipe that was handed down through five generations of pizzaiolis (pizza makers). They use tomatoes from Vesuvio, D.O.C., buffalo mozzarella from Battipaglia and extra virgin olive oil made in Italy. In addition, they also offer classic Italian dishes such as lasagna, rigatoni alla Bolognese, eggplant parmigiana and homemade tiramisu. $$
