Check out the live news segment that aired on KUSI.

Summertime and the living is easy — even easier (and more fun) with the right tech and accessories to make the most of the season. Here are my picks for living the good life this year as you hit the road for a memorable and action-packed summer vacation:

Samsung Galaxy S9 Mobile Phone from Verizon:

The feature-packed Samsung Galaxy S9 is your personal translator when traveling in a foreign country. The phone has “Bixby,” a voice-controlled feature that can translate foreign languages — street signs, menus, road maps and more — into English.

UE Wonderboom Speaker:

This bluetooth-enabled, lightweight, super-portable speaker is also water-proof — the ideal companion for lounging by the pool or at the beach.

Samsung 360 Camera:

Capture epic 360-degree views of your vacation destination with this pocket-sized, lightweight camera that delivers crisp 4K images.

GoPro HERO5 Silver Edition:

This GoPro camera has a built-in touch display for adjusting shots and settings, and its waterproof housing keeps it safe to a depth of 131 feet. With its built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you won’t have to wait until you get home to share your exciting vacation video and photos.

FitBit Ionic SmartWatch:

The smart watch that cares — about your health. Packed with features from fitness tracking and guidance to health insights, music storage, apps & more. Great travel companion to the Samsung Phone from Verizon.

Tile Style:

These Bluetooth-enabled “smart” tags help you keep track of everything while you travel, from your keys to your luggage. It has a 200-foot wireless range, it’s water-proof and resilient — so no more misplaced items.

Sony Noise-Canceling Headphones:

The must-have accessory for “getting away from it all,” on the plane or on the move. Sony’s new WF-SP700N “Truly Wireless” Noise-Canceling Headphones for Sports are water & sweat resistant — perfect for the beach or the gym — while the 1000XM2 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones provide “over-the-ear” protection to stop anyone from “messing with your mojo” when you’re on the road.

H2O Audio

This San Diego company doesn’t let a little water get in the way of rocking out to your favorite tunes. Their Stream Player MP3 device, along with a pair of Surge + or Surge S+ headphones, lets swimmers, surfers and other athletes and watersports enthusiasts enjoy an exceptional audio experience under even the most extreme conditions.

For centuries, people having been searching for a way to make themselves disappear at will. I have perfected the technique, and I demonstrated it today on live television!

How to make yourself disappear on live TV

Here’s my secret (warning: this is dangerous — don’t try this at home, and especially not while wearing a kilt!):

Step 1: Find a gorgeous “fitness model” wearing tight spandex. I recommend using spokes-hottie Lacie Weddle (see video).

Step 2: Just in case that’s not distracting enough for the audience, further upstage yourself with a handsome anchorman wearing a kilt.

Step 3: Just stand next to them. If you look like me, no one will ever even notice you’re there!

See for yourself!
