Belfast Airport security warning

After the announcement that British officials had thwarted a plot to blow up airliners using explosives smuggled in carry-on luggage, heightened security measures were quickly put into place; including a ban on all gadgets on flights originating from the UK to NY. British Airways, along with other airlines, have notified passengers that no electrical or battery powered items including laptops, mobile phones, iPods, remote controls and electronic key fobs can be carried in the cabin and must be checked in as hold baggage. There has been no official word as to how long this ban will remain in effect.

Ralph Lauren window shopping

Polo Ralph Lauren has turned its Manhattan store’s window display into the ultimate impulse buyer’s paradise. Inspired by the movie Minority Report, a 67-inch image showing various Polo products is projected onto the window pane from the inside of the shop, while a thin touch foil mounted on the glass powers the touch screen. People passing by need only to pick, point and purchase. A credit card swiper mounted outside of the store allows buyers to complete their transaction. Polo reports that they will keep the window available, 24 hours a day, until September 10th. Depending on the success of the window, Polo might decide rolling out the display to other stores.

Heidi Klum promotes Victoria's Secret Body bra

Trying to drum up a little press of their own in the wake of FreshPair’s National Underwear Day, Heidi Klum showed up at a Victoria’s Secret store in New York showing off her brand new bra. Yep, her bra … well, maybe not “hers” — although we do have to wonder if she intentionally grabbed that 34B.

Heidi, who was once nicknamed Muffin (we don’t want to know), said of Victoria’s Secret’s latest creation, it’s a big honor having a bra named after my nickname that people know in the business, ‘The Body.’

There are 16 additional pictures of Heidi flaunting The Body after the jump, so you know the drill…

National Underwear Day

Times Square in New York was once again overrun by a bevy of beauties baring their bodies. Well, not quite all of their bodies. Founded in August 2003, underwear maker FreshPair celebrated National Underwear Day today. So what’s the reasoning behind the event? According to FreshPair, to evoke the care-free attitude of Sixties ‘happenings’, when free spirits took control of public spaces as venues for their art, their message … in other words, just another excuse to hire hot models and have them parade around in their panties.

Evan Guttman

Two weeks ago Evan Guttman’s plight to recover his friend’s stolen Sidekick took the web by storm. After numerous headaches with the NYPD, countless telephone calls and interviews, thousands of emails, clashes with the perpetrators, and millions of visitors to his website, Guttman is glad to report that the story has a happy ending.

Sasha, the girl who found “bought” the Sidekick off of a friend cab driver guy in the subway, was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property in the fifth degree, a misdemeanor.

If you find something, chances are that someone else is missing it. Do the right thing and return it — or you just might find yourself, your family, and your friends the object of ridicule by millions of people.

Fendi ad

When you think of where you could find designer knock-offs, the first place to come to mind would probably be street vendors. Well, Wal-Mart just added themselves to the list. The retail giant has been sued by Fendi for selling fake handbags, wallets and key chains at Sam’s Club stores in states including New York and California.

Fendi contests that the fake goods were being passed off as the geniune article and being sold at hugely discounted prices. One example cites a Sams Club in Las Vegas selling a handbag with a retail price of $925 for a mere $295. Wal-Mart had nothing to say, natch.

Jessica Simpson looks like Britney Spears Britney Spears looks like Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson seems to be channeling her inner Britney Spears … what’s going on here?! Didn’t Jessica recently say she was going to exact her revenge on Nick by transforming herself into a whole new sexy? Somehow, I just don’t think this is making the grade. Perhaps she’s starting to regret her split with Nick. She was recently quoted as saying she’s tired of being alone … When I was with Nick, I had someone who understood what I was going through.

GoMobo order food on the go

A new company, GoMobo, has emerged in Manhattan which allows you to order and pay for your food via SMS. The best part, when you pick up your order feel free to step to the front of the line — wait, there is (supposedly) no line! According to their site, it just takes four easy steps.

1) Order a saved favorite or select a restaurant and customize from their menu.

2) Each order is securely debited from your automatically refilled “Mobo Go” account (works just like EZ Pass).

3) We will text message you that your order has been accepted and the estimated time when it will be ready.

4) There will be a separate, no-line, Mobo counter where you will simply state your name and the last four digits of your cell phone so you can pick up your food and be in and out in seconds.

They may only list four steps, but that first step looks pretty involved: Go to your computer, log-in, build your order, add your billing info, save the order, log-out, pick-up your phone, then SMS the restaurant. I’m sure they will eventually streamline the process, and branch out beyond the seven restaurants they are currently partnered with, but until then, it’s a start.

The black wrapping came off and Apple’s new NY flagship store cube has been unveiled. One more bit of news, this store is set to be 24/7, 365. It’s the 7-eleven of tech. So if you have nothing better to do while you stumble home drunk from the club, stop by the store and grab yourself an iPod, or two. Now if only the Genius Bar was really a bar…
