iPhonesque Camera with GPS

Fevzi Turklap, The Gadget Detective

Fevzi tell us that sure, it’s small, lightweight, less than three-quarters of an inch thick, and takes twelve mega pixel photos with a 5x optical zoom and that alone would make it perfect for the traveler. But wait, that’s not all! This baby has some great extras like an iPhonesque touch screen that takes up the entire back of the camera (3.5 inches), built in Bluetooth and, get this, GPS that provides complete geographic location information for each photo taken. Learn more and listen here  

Dam Good Rafting on the Colorado River

Sofia Justan, Director of Sales, Black Canyon River Rafting for Forever Resorts

From there, it’s a smooth water ride for twelve miles down the sparkling Colorado River surrounded by some of the most awe inspiring scenery, flora and fauna imaginable. Take a break from the one-arm bandits for this natural winner! Learn more and listen here
