    Navigating through NYC with a Nokia N95

    Yesterday, I was tasked with navigating the streets of Manhattan using only the GPS on a Nokia N95. Of course, I wasn’t alone in this ordeal. I was up against two heavy hitting travelers. Lee Abbomonte is a crazy mofo who is attempting to be the younget person to travel to every country in the world. He’s already been to 135 countries and he’s not even 30. Caleb Smith has… Read More

    RC a human tonight in NYC

    In case you’re bored tonight around 8:30 PM EST. Imagine being able to control people by telling them what to do, what to say, and where to go. Imagine being able to see and hear the world around them as each new scenario unfolds. With the launch of
    modmylife.com, this strange new brand of entertainment has arrived. Mod My Life Read More

    The Unreasonable Stance: Time Warner Cable

    This week, I’m going to take a seat while the other eight gazillion people on the Web complain about Comcast. See, back in New Jersey and Philadelphia, I never had problems with Comcast. Maybe once a year something would happen where I needed to call and bitch at them for an hour before something was done. But overall, it was a fine experience and I’d have no problem going back… Read More

    T-Mobile launches first 3G handset for 3G-less network

    No need to freak out over this quiet launch of the 3G Samsung t639 for T-mo. There’s no way in hell they’re even close to launching their 3G network because they’re waiting on the US government to relinquish the spectrum T-mobile purchased last year. If it concerns national security, which it does, we won’t see jack from T-mo’s 3G network for years to come so… Read More

  • An Apple grows in Brooklyn

    An Apple grows in Brooklyn

    I never though about it before, but Apple doesn’t have a store in Brooklyn. Considering how popular Brooklyn is and the amount of Apple users you can find anywhere you look, it would be a perfect match for the company. Now, in a move that is sure to please Brooklynites, the NY Post is reporting that the Madison Retail Group is trying to get a space in a brand new condo building for an… Read More

    Bloomberg, Nokia want you to man up, recycle that old cell phone

    I’m the treehugger at CrunchGear and I make it known every chance I get. I don’t overwhelm you with facts and figures or any of that nonsense, but I do put in a gadget here and there. Now this isn’t a gadget, but it does involve your old mobile device that’s just sitting in your junk drawer so listen up. Today is the start of Nokia’s campaign to collect… Read More

    NYC Getting Sprint's WiMax Service

    Thought Sprint’s WiMax service was only going to be limited to small, rural towns? Nah, didn’t think so. You knew it was going to hit the big cities like NYC and San Francisco first, didn’t you? Well now Sprint has confirmed that New York will be getting WiMax service when it’s rolled out in 2008. Samsung will be building the infrastructure Sprint needs to operate the… Read More

    Nintendo Opening Offices in NYC October 1?

    The last time Nintedo was in NYC. Did you know that that Nintendo is opening up a huge, badass office at 445 Park Ave. in New York on October 1? Neither did we, but we just got a hot tip that says it’s so. What is it Nintendo could be up to in NYC? The image above gives us a place to start our brains.

    Motorola Throwing Up Cryptic Posters Around NYC


    GEE, WHAT COULD IT POSSIBLY MEAN? Nicholas and I were on our way to some bar/event yesterday when we noticed this poster conveniently plastered next to a Paul van Dyk flyer. Seems Motorola is really gearing up for a big promotion involving something with the number 2. Oh my! Because we’re not retarded, we concluded it was related to the RAZR 2 and wandered off to get drunk. Hours later… Read More

  • Fox News Camera Crew Gets Out Of Line

    I don’t want to put too much personal commentary into this one so I’ll leave it to you guys to sound off in the comments. Reader Owen sent us this video of a mascot from Hungrr.com handing out pins and collecting donations for a charity on the day of the iPhone launch in NYC. However, good things suddenly turn bad as some asshole from Fox News berates the poor guy for being in… Read More

    Interview: David Clayman, Third In line

    Here is a brief interview CG got with with David Clayman, 21, who has jumped in front of the public eye along with the three other people on the iPhone line at the 5th Avenue Apple store. Surprisingly, these people aren’t the crazed Apple fanboys everyone made them out to be. In fact, for David here, the event was more about the experience. Read More

    Helio Officially Lands In NYC

    It’s finally here! After months of waiting, the NYC Helio Flagship store officially opened its doors for business. I took a quick peek around and it’s definitely not 100 percent done, so consider this a ‘soft launch’. That’s not to say there are paint buckets and scaffolding strewn about the store. Some of the art work is missing and a few other things here and… Read More

    NYC Helio Store Opening This Week?

    Three months ago I spotted the Helio store being built in my neighborhood and it looks like it’ll be opening up very soon. My peeps at Helio have told me it could be open as early as this week. If you’re in the area then you should definitely stop by and take a look because it looks way cooler than the Santa Monica shop. The store is located on Broadway just north of Houston. Read More

    NYC Taxis To Go High-Tech

    I only use cabs in the city when I’m trying to get my mack on and I have no time for that silly subway. But if I should come across a situation where I need to use one, I’ll finally be able to use my credit card instead of cash. How, you ask? NYC has finalized plans to install 13,000 devices into all the cabs around the city. These units will allow you to pay with a credit card… Read More

    Third Apple Store Coming To NYC

    As we already know, Apple apparently feels the need to make its presence known throughout all of NYC. In fact, Apple isn’t content with two great stores located in SoHo and 5th Avenue, so they’re building a third in the meatpacking district. That’s right. After stuffing your face at Morimoto, you can now stroll over to 401 W. 14th St. for an iPod Shuffle or a Mac Pro. The… Read More
