How Artists Are Reinventing the Pay Phone, Now That It's Obsolete

This week, New York City announced its plan to replace public pay phones with digital hubs called Links. Starting in 2015, the kiosks will offer free Wi-Fi, phone-charging stations, touchscreens for accessing directions and other services, advertising displays, and yes, free phone calls within the U.S. The disappearance of the pay phone, while inevitable, is also a little sad; it's been part of our streetscape for longer than most of us can remember.

Is "Uptown Funk" the Most Stylish Music Video of the Year?

Music producer Mark Ronson may be best known for creating impossibly catchy aural landscapes, but it's hard to ignore the fact that he's a damn snazzy dresser too.
