Okay, I want my commission from the folks at
Cyber3. They’re the folks who make the US$39.95 TiBook Tote & Lift, which lets you add a handle to your Titanium PowerBook.
The Tote & Lift attaches to the TiPB’s screen hinge brackets. Besides offering a handle, it also tilts the PowerBook at an angle that makes it easier to see the screen and to type. Tilting it also allows for the bottom back of the TiBook to be raised, allowing, as with the TiCase, better cooling of a Titanium PowerBook. Everywhere I go, people ask where I got it. I’ve written down the Cyber3 URL on the back of my reporter’s notepad so I can give it to people quickly.
MacCentral users, as always, are helping me in my quest for good food. John Getter recommends going to the Roxy Deli in Times Square on Broadway.
“They are famous for their massive and delicious sandwiches,” he said. “I ordered a pastrami sandwich that, honestly, had four inches tall of just meat. I could not believe it. It was heaven. If you go, make sure to sit on the lower level, because the upstairs has no atmosphere and can feel isolated.”
He also says that a good breakfast can be found at, of all places, one of the Sabaro Pizzas. They have an all you eat breakfast buffet in the morning with eggs, bacon, sausage and other things.
Meanwhile, “writer, editor and a gastronome” Richard Jenkins thinks I was waaay off base in yesterday’s Reporter’s Notebook in which I talked of an Indian restaurant called Mezze and spoke of having “some calzone.”
“Mezze isn’t Indian food but Greek, nor is anything you described eating remotely Indian,” he points out. “Likewise, eating ‘some calzone’ is a bit difficult as it’s loosely a folded over pizza with filling.”
I stand corrected and gastronomically embarrassed. But the Mezze food and calzone was still great!
