RIGHT PRICE: Asia can seem inhospitable to travelers searching for the middle ground between youth hostels and top-dollar lodgings. But mid-price accommodation is available--if you know where to look. Asia-Hotels lists hundreds of such options, with reviews by guests. The site is easy to navigate and includes descriptions of each inn's facilities. You can also book rooms through the site, sometimes at a substantial discount.
E-READING: Holiday reading taking up too much space in your suitcase? Go digital. The Rocket EB-500 lets you store as many as 10 titles in a single book-sized device that is back-lit and easy to read. Select any of the 750 titles online, download them to your computer and then upload to the EB-500. The battery lasts 30 hours and recharges in 90 minutes. Expect to pay around $300 for the E-book; titles cost about the same as books on Amazon.com.
