An app that lists every wi-fi hotspot on earth, a collection of biking gear in 11 different colorways, Neil Stephenson’s new Sci-Fi epic and more.



WifiMapper App
Don’t be the guy wandering into cafes to ask if they have wi-fi and refusing to buy anything if they don’t. Download WifiMapper, a free app that maps out every available free wi-fi hotspot in your vicinity (out of over 500 million worldwide), provides information on the venue via FourSquare and reliability ratings from WifiMapper users like you. It’ll even tell you whether the coffee is worth it. Free

Fone Salesman WoodPuck Bamboo Edition Qi Wireless Charger
If you’ve spent the day searching for hotspots, you’ll need a charge when you’re home. The Woodpuck wireless charger is both convenient and handsome — a nice change from the plasticky look of most chargers. And the Mao Zhu bamboo it’s built from grows ten times as quickly as wood; the sustainability is as relieving as not having to deal with wires. Works with all Qi-compatible products. $63

Hue Go
Good lighting will make even the most gadget-filled home warm and inviting. That’s why we’re early fans of Phillips Hue Lighting. Their new mobile lamp shifts all the features of their smart lightbulbs — dynamic presets, a sunrise-mimicking function to wake you up, and light settings that sync with your music, TV and games. The lamp can display 16 million different colors and shades across 3 hours of battery time. meethue.com

Seveneves: A Novel
Feeling overwhelmed by the sci-fi vibes of modern life? Read a sci-fi novel for some perspective. Neal Stephenson’s latest, Seveneves, explores humanity’s path from a rapidly destructing earth and back again after 5,000 years — by which time humanity has branched into seven distinct races. Sounds a bit more adventurous than Interstellar. $22

Isaora Xylite Running Windbreaker
Isaora has made a name for itself balancing the performance demands of athletes with aesthetic demands of life in the city and their new sportswear collection is no exception. The XLTLite running windbreaker features exceptionally light and water-resistant Japanese nylon fabric with strategic laser-cut venting, auto lock zip pockets and reflective seam taping, allowing wearers stay prepared for whatever the streets hold. $123

Pactimo Match Your Ride Collection
Once you’ve rightly remembered that earth is great — as is America, by extension — go biking on it. But remember to do it in style. After matching the most popular colorways in cycling apparel to the Pantone color system, Pactimo is offering a series of kits — bibs, jerseys and hats — in those select hues. $240
