The things you find out about your cellphone in the pitch dark

Let Your Cell-Light Shine

6:00 PM -- A standard-issue Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) RAZR can provide nearly enough light to help you get your bearings when all goes dark. This is what I found out last night as the lights failed in the Art Deco wonder of the AT&T Building that Unstrung now calls home.

That's only nearly enough light, mind you. It couldn't quite penetrate the inky blackness of the corridor to the elevators and prevent me from whacking my ribs on the defunct water fountain. Still, it was a lot better than nothing.

And I'm glad the elevators were working when I did find them. I'm not sure my battery, or my knees, would have held out down twenty flights of stairs.

Mobile Editor

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.

He lives in Brooklyn with cats.
