YANKEES FANS KEY TO A-ROD’S DECISION
JOE Torre was asked yesterday if he thinks Alex Rodriguez has won over Yankee fans.
“I think so,” Torre said at his Safe At Home Foundation Golf Classic. “Yankee fans like to see explosiveness. They’re used to having big boppers.” Now he imagined A-Rod bopping until the age of 40, probably past Barry Bonds, and said: “God only knows where he’s gonna wind up.”
Torre may as well have been referring to A-Rod’s future home. Because the $30 Million Question hanging high over The Bronx is this one:
Have Yankee fans won over Alex Rodriguez?
After three years of crying and moaning about his October failings, after boobirds mocking him at every opportunity because he is not Derek Jeter, Yankee Stadium gets its chance to show A-Rod the love.
Maybe it’s too late now. Maybe A-Rod has made up his mind to opt out of Pinstripes.

NEW YORK -- A major New York City taxi drivers' group says it might strike over new technology that's being required in all the city's cabs.
The executive director of the Taxi Workers Alliance says the group may call for a strike in September -- if city leaders don't address drivers' concerns about their privacy and income. The group has more than 7,000 members.
The city Taxi and Limousine Commission is requiring all 13,000 city cabs to install touch-screen monitor and mapping systems. Taxis must have the systems when they come up for routine inspections, beginning October 1.
The technology allows riders to pay by credit card, check on news, map out where a cab is going and find information about eateries and entertainment.
Many drivers say the systems are expensive and would let officials check up on them. Taxi officials say the new technology could boost ridership by eliminating the need for cash, while giving drivers information about traffic and lost items.
The commission originally called for the technology while approving a 26-percent fare increase in 2004.

DIES FIVE DAYS AFTER BEING HIT IN WILD SHOOTOUT
July 15, 2007 -- Officer Russel Timoshenko, who was shot in the face Monday while confronting a trio of vicious thugs in Brooklyn, ended his brave battle for life yesterday afternoon.
"Officer Timoshenko made the ultimate sacrifice with unflinching bravery and dedication to duty," Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said outside Kings County Hospital last night.
His doctor, Robert Kurtz, struggled to hold back tears as he told reporters that the NYPD lawman died while on life support at 4:14 p.m.
In the dramatic final moment of Timoshenko's life, a line of nearly 150 fellow officers filed past him to pay their respects. His devastated family huddled near by.
Friends outside the hospital room could hear his heartbroken mother muttering "god help, god help" between her gut-wrenching sobs.
"People were kissing his hands and his feet," said George Kallaur, an archpriest at the Russian Orthodox Church of the New Martyrs and the Confessors of Russia in Bensonhurst.

Yankees slugger still in prime as he nears 500 career homers Life with Alex Rodriguez is loud. It has to be.
From deafening roars after 450-foot home runs to ever-present tabloid turmoil that follows the slugger's every movement, noise is a constant of A-Rod's existence. It's anticipated and expected, with the only sure bet that there will be plenty of it.
Perhaps that's why a man who strides to home plate behind Mims' "This Is Why I'm Hot," a modern rap anthem, spends so much time blocking the world with rubbery plastic earphones, sending his iPod back to a simpler decade with the musical styling of Pat Benatar, John Cougar Mellencamp and Hall & Oates.

Early iphone owner are very very happy with their devices, which is what i surveyed out in NY TODAY. PLUS APPLE and AT&T are luring customers way, or are they?
lets us know...
MyMaps, as the new feature is known, allows consumers to select from more than one hundred mini-applications created by independent software developers. These allow users to overlay data on top of Google's popular online map service.
Visitors to http://maps.google.com after Wednesday at 6 a.m. PDT (1300 GMT) will find a new tab that contains links to dozens of the mini-applications, which Google calls Maplets.
One map application allows users to watch YouTube videos based on the locations where they are uploaded. One could switch from the video confessions of a teenager in Ohio to tourist videos shot in the Andes mountains of South America.

- Miss New Jersey says someone is threatening to make some personal photographs of her public if she does not give up her crown.
But Amy Polumbo is not just Miss New Jersey, she's also a Jersey girl, and says she has no intention of giving in.
"It would certainly be easier for me to simply succumb to these unlawful and immoral threats, and quietly disappear,'' Polumbo said Thursday at a news conference she called in Asbury Park.
Polumbo, a 22-year-old Howell resident and a senior at Wagner College on Staten Island, won the Miss New Jersey competition last month, giving her the right to compete in the next Miss America competition -- wherever and whenever it may be held. Her platform: Protecting children from online predators.
Polumbo's lawyer, Anthony Caruso, said that starting last week, Polumbo, her family and officials in the Miss New Jersey Education Foundation received packages with pictures of her and the demand that she resign by Friday.

"According to CrunchGear's 'trusted source' that the upcoming MacBooks which are expected to be released around October will support the iPhone's multi-touch technology built into their touchpads. The feature will be built into the touchpads, allowing you to navigate through your notebook's files, applications, etc. the same way you can on the iPhone. (Yes, I know you can already scroll with them, that's nothing new. I'm talking about all the other finger gestures that can be done on the iPhone's screen) On June 20th, CrunchGear reported, "The upcoming MacBooks will be about half the thickness of current models (which would be quite the feat) and they'll be made from new plastics/materials"
Apple's stock soared to a record high Tuesday amid analyst reports that sales of highly profitable iPhones easily rocketed past 300,000 after its US launch.
Apple shares were up nearly five percent, going for 127.17 dollars a piece when the New York Stock Exchange closed. The price slipped a fraction to 126.82 in after-hours trading.
Investors were evidently reacting to reports from analysts that from 310,000 to 700,000 iPhones have been snapped up since the devices began selling on Friday and that the profit margin on the devices is estimated at 55 percent.
Apple and US telecom giant AT&T, the exclusive iPhone service provider, did not disclose sales figures "for competition reasons."
"In its first weekend we sold more iPhones than in the first month of any other wireless phone AT&T ever offered," AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel told AFP. "That's how good it's been. We are simply not releasing figures."
Nearly all of AT&T's 1,800 stores were sold out of iPhones by Monday and new stocks were en route, according to Siegel.
The rush of people activating their iPhones online during the weekend flooded AT&T computers, causing delays in a small fraction of cases, according to Siegel.
