BUY

• MAPi cases for Ipad Mini

$200, www.mapicases.com/milano-portfolio-leather-mini-ipad-case

What does it say about our consumer culture that we're willing to spend almost as much for a case for our electronic devices as for the device itself? Oh, cut it out with the high-minded sociology lesson. This is one cool leather case, made of European leather "handcrafted by artisans in Istanbul," according to the company website. There are zip closures on three sides, two storage pockets for IDs and receipts, two small pockets for business cards and two fully lined pockets for storing travel documents, passport or boarding pass.

BUY

• Rand McNally 90th Anniversary Road Atlas

$4.99, available at iTunes store. More info: www.randmcnally.com/pages/anniversary

Ah, remember the old days when the bulky Rand McNally atlas rode shotgun with you on those long, hot summer road trips? Yeah, well, who uses a foldout map, let alone a dead-tree atlas, anymore? Rand McNally has responded by launching its first iPad app and eBook version of the road atlas. Not only does the app or e-book give you detailed map at a touch of a screen, it also provides "road trip tips" from travel experts.
