foto-234jpg

Diego Della Valle’s enamorment with all things JFK (he famously purchased the late president’s cruiser, Marlin, at auction at Christie’s in 2005) extends well beyond the White House. From July 2 to August 20, the Tod’s chief is sponsoring a new exhibition of iconic images taken by Italian paparazzi photographer Settimio Garritano of Jackie-O on holiday in Capri from 1968 to 1972.

Tech Review: T-Mobile G2x Smartphone

201105-b-tmobilejpg

With the advent of the smartphone, finding a cell phone that has access to travel-friendly apps is easy. Nowadays, the real trick is finding one that not only can run all those apps, but also do it seamlessly.

So when I tested out the new T-Mobile G2x, powered by Android 2.2, I was happy to see that it was top notch. The phone, released just a few weeks ago, is a great addition to the slew of new Android-based smartphones. I found the touchscreen to be extremely responsive and on point when making selections and even typing texts. (Though I should admit, I don't think it's quite up to par with iPhone's responsiveness, but that's a feat that seems to be among the biggest challenges for all creators of touchscreens.) Still, the mistakes made while firing off texts were few and far between.
