iPhone 4S
Apple's new smartphone is finally out. Sadly, it's also the last product released under Steve Jobs's stewardship. While it looks just like the iPhone 4, much has changed inside. The biggest difference is a new dualcore A5 processor. Apple claims it's made the iPhone 4S seven times faster than iPhone 4. The camera has had a big upgrade. It now has a better low-light sensor, 8 megapixels and reduced shutter lag. The best new feature though, is Siri. This clever software allows you to do everything from scheduling a meeting to finding a new restaurant (and getting directions to it) just by asking your phone.
Price Rs 38,500, available unlocked in the UK.

Suntory's Midori Melon Liqueur
In Japanese, midori means green. The sense of effervescence associated with the colour is captured perfectly in the liqueur. Distilled from melons from Japan's melon orchard district Yubari, it is then infused with other fragrant ingredients. Owing to its high mixability, it is great base for cocktails and tall drinks. It is now available in India through Aspri Spirits.
