If you live in New York and ride the subway, you probably have no hair because you've been pulling it out since you first boarded at Times Square.

For those who don't live in New York, the subway is the worst place on earth. It is infested with rude, loud, smelly "human beings" who are seemingly unaware that a world of other people exists around them outside of their "Candy Crush Saga" bubble.

Johnny T, the puppet who taught tourists how to act like decent human beings, has a new video, and this time it's all about the necessary evil called the MTA.

In the wake of its taxi upgrade, NYC will upgrade 250 old phone booths across the city with 32-inch touchscreens that provide access to local neighborhood information -- and the "smartscreens" will eventually be wired to make Skype calls, log into email, and serve as WiFi hotspots. "The goal is to pilot it and see what the response is," said city spokesman Nicholas Sbordone. Perhaps most important to the 8 million New Yorkers who won't go near current pay phones: "They're built to be cleaned with a jet hose," said Tom Touchet, CEO of City24x7, which will install the screens. "They're waterproof and dust-proof."

The Nissan NV200 minivan has taken top honors in New York City's competition to find a new taxi cab. The vehicle boasts odor-reducing and anti-microbial interior fabric; charging ports for passengers' small electronics; a sliding door; floor lights; and GPS. The new design will be revealed today, though it won't make its official debut until October 2013. Current taxi cabs will be phased out by 2018.
