3 Gadgets to Get You from Geek to Chic

Gadgets, like a sharp suit or fast car, send a message. But you need to know what message you’re sending. Adam Rich from Thrillist.com offers the top three tech gadgets to help upgrade your own personal cool quotient.

1. TeleNav Shotgun GPS ($299, 3 months free):This next-generation GPS module has all the newest bells and whistles as well as a web connection, so you can send emails and web links directly from your desk.

2. Apricorn DVR Expander (From $129):When your digital video recorder fills up, this device – essentially a hard drive – will give you more space. It holds up to 600 extra hours of video storage.

3. George iPod Dock ($499):One of the more high-end tabletop sound systems, George comes with several audio speakers including a subwoofer to turn your iPod into a complete stereo. The front unit also detaches and turns into a remote control so you can control your iPod from anywhere in the room.
