If you are like most people with a pulse in the city, you have a phone and care for it very much. Whether we phone-ophiles would like to admit it or not, we are obsessed with their well being because, let’s face it, we don’t function properly when our phone doesn’t. So to ensure that your device is constantly comfortable and, in even having its technological life lengthened, springing for a Toddy Gear Universal Wedge Stand for your phone can be a decidedly responsible, not at all frivolous, investment.

These cute little bean bags have a grove that props your phone up to a comfortably tilted position so that you can swipe photos and observe texts without even having to pick it up. They are brightly printed and keep your phone elevated closer to your eye line so you are that much less likely to accidentally bump it, sending it over the edge of your desk.

To further the pampering of your much beloved device, the beanbag also comes with a cloth for cleaning its screen and making it look like new.

Let’s face it, without your phone, you would be lost, hopelessly out of touch with friends you never see and constantly bored in line for coffee shops. Our phones do so much for us, so why not show it some unabashed luxury? The wedges run for around $14.99 and can be purchased on their website.

Grace Capobianco, CEO/Publisher of Downtown Media & Production was born to be a visionary. She has spent the majority of her life working, developing and marketing innovative media products that not only engage and inform but also bring entire communities together. Utilizing her personal vision as a professional guide, Grace started her first company, Tropical Publishing, when she was just 27 years old and from this moment on, she knew that entrepreneurship was her passion. On a perpetual quest to bring innovative and relevant news to communities, she also created, developed and published the first ever Chamber of Commerce magazine for the Palm Beaches, The South Florida Office Guide. Evolving within the realm of publishing, she moved on to launch Up The Coast magazine in the 1980’s, a guide to Jupiter, in north Florida, where the population aggrandized from 9,000 to more than 70,000 today, and then continued to hone in on niche markets with the launch of publications like Alternative Medicine and NewBeauty. Simultaneously, she launched ATSI, a telecommunications company, which sold Mitel and Siemens products to her publishing clients. The idea of Downtown Magazine NYC was born for Grace in the wake of the devastation of 9/11. A Lower Manhattan resident at this time, Grace saw firsthand the incredible sense of community the neighborhood had demonstrated during these trying times, as well as its immense strength and perseverance. She explored every angle of launching a magazine that would speak to this community but initially felt the timing was just too soon. It wasn’t until 2010 that Grace felt the community was ready to hear its voice and launched Downtown Magazine NYC.
