It's that time of the year again, when WIRED Magazine brings in bamboo keyboards and more to open a pop-up shop in NYC, and Racked NY has the first word on how they've renovated an old Tower Records for it. "The shop sprawls across the basement, first, and second floors of a certain former record shop at 4th and Broadway. It's organized into six personalities: Digital Gentleman, Gastronaut, Smarter Upstarter, Adventure Capitalist, Maker, Culturazzi, and, uh, female (OK, "Gadget Girl.") Certain co-branded products, like an Incase iPad holder and Urbanears headphones, can be purchased in-store, but if you fall in love with anything else, you'll have to order it online." [RNY]
