Good morning @metronewyork. A lot of great stuff on www.metro.us, including a chat with Halle Berry, and a plan by Google to bring WiFi to NYC's masses. The Metro6@7 points the way.
iPHONE PISTOL CASE OUTRAGE
Cops and community leaders across the country -- and abroad -- Wednesday morning are decrying the iPhone pistol case, urging people not to buy them, and calling for a ban.
HALLE BERRY BACK IN EXTANT
Metro's Ned Ehrbar talks with Halle Berry about Season 2 of Extant and the problem with her drive-by breastfeedings in Season 1.
YOUR 'CUE? COSTS MORE
It’s nearly 4th of July weekend, which means fireworks, swimming and BBQ. But for lots of New Yorkers, that’s going to hurt the wallet more than usual.
WIFI FOR THE MASSES
This is Google’s city. We just live and text in it. Former New York City Deputy Mayor of Economic Development Dan Doctoroff is leading the tech giant’s plans to replace the city’s pay phones with a free, superfast gigabit WiFi network in all five boroughs.
SLOWING UBER'S GROWTH
A fight is on to limit the number of Uber and other for-hire cars on the streets, which yellow cab advocates say have become more jammed than ever. There was a hearing and a protest at City Hall.
Kristian Dyer riffs on how NYC is clearly a soccer town. There are no ifs, no ands and certainly no buts about it, Dyer argues.
Note: The Metro6@7 will be on hiatus until Monday, July 6. Enjoy your holiday weekend!
