Chill Pill’s Mobile Speakers ($49.99); let you have big fun along the way. The speakers pack a powerful sound in a tiny, portable 2- by-4-inch form. Retractable USB cables (included) mean they won’t get tangled—and you can use the cables to charge your iPod and iPhone from the speakers. Chill Pill’s Rapcap Mini Microphone ($14.99) for the iPod lets you capture and save in WAV format for easy playback.

April might have been the “cruelest month” for poet T.S. Eliot, but when it comes to planning and executing a business trip or the perfect summer getaway, June runs a close second. Whether the travel is work related (a summer conference, perhaps), personal–or a mix of both–with so many recent industry changes (airline, rail, auto rentals, hotels), it’s often hard to keep track. And that could prove costly in terms of time, energy, and money.One of the toughest tasks for travelers, however, is deciding what to take. For those who can’t seem to leave the office behind, the trip can seem daunting. Although we can’t promise that you won’t have an occasional hiccup along the way, we want to make sure that getting “there” — wherever your destination might be — doesn’t involve slogging through a wasteland of unnecessary products. Black Enterprise has assembled a mélange of lightweight, easy-to-use tools–some no heavier than an Android app–to help ease the journey.
