Central Park carriage owners responded to Pink’s animal-cruelty charges by deriding them as the “ignorant comments of a B-list pop star.” Nets chairman and real-estate developer Bruce Ratner is getting married to plastic surgeon Pamela Lipkin. At Sundance, Paris Hilton gave a lap dance to Jared Leto, David Katzenberg took pictures of his privates for girlfriend Nicky Hilton, Cisco Adler got into a shoving match, Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian made out, and Adrian Grenier lost his drumsticks. John Legend says he doesn’t get caught up with dating models and that he’s “more concerned with (his) happiness.”

    Hitting the RoadAs a halfhearted cabbie strike made it easier to flag down a school bus than a yellow taxi during rush hour last week, the Big Apple did its best to keep moving forward. Hillary out-earned rivals Barack Obama and Rudy Giuliani in the city during the second quarter — and bested Rudy in a poll asking which candidate people would most like to have riding shotgun on a long road trip — but hit a speed bump trying to maintain her distance from former six-figure fund-raiser and felon Norman Hsu, who skipped out on bail.

    Fake Steve Jobs Is Greedy, Outed, and at Work on a Fake Novel If you’re enough of a techie that the idea of a parody blog written from Steve Jobs’s point of view strikes you as rife with comic possibilities, well, you probably already know Fake Steve Jobs. And if you do, you’ve probably just read (while browsing the Times on your iPhone, no doubt) that the paper exposed the anonymous author of that blog — i.e. Fake Steve himself — as Daniel Lyons, a senior editor at Forbes. (“Hope you feel good about yourself, you mangina,” wrote Lyons to Times reporter Brad Stone in today’s you-got-me post — written in his own voice, not Steve’s.)

    Problems for Apple? Ha! Oh, no, the Sun told us yesterday, the iPhone is a disaster, and Apple is in trouble! But then the company released third-quarter earnings, and, well: Oh, yes, the Journal tells us today, Apple’s earnings are a massive 73 percent, and the iPhone had little to nothing to do with it! Um, huh? Well, while Apple has made the gizmo of the moment its face of the moment, the truth is that it continues to rack up incredible revenues on good old Macs ($2.3 billion in sales, up from last year’s $1.87 billion) and iPods ($1.57 billion). Even better, the phone, which is also an iPod, isn’t even eating into the iPod sales. (The new data also defangs AT&T’s report of 146,000 iPhone activations between June 29 and July 1: Apple says it’s sold 270,000 units over that period.) In short, while bloggers were griping about the fallibility of the Jesus Phone, Jobs sold ‘em two Powerbooks, four Shuffles, and a Nano. And the best fringe benefit of the iPhone hype? Nobody is noticing the total floperoo that is AppleTV. Apple’s Old Standbys, iPods and Macs, Drive Profit [WSJ] Earlier: Is the iPhone a Failure? Maybe!

    Steve Jobs Wows the Faithful (But What About Those Options?) It’s a camera! It’s a phone! It’s an iPod! Yup, as has been widely expected Steve Jobs introduced Apple’s new iPhone — a next-generation smart phone — in his Macworld keynote address just a few minutes ago, and of course the nerds cheered. And he also introduced AppleTV, which allows users to integrate their computers and their televisions. The Apple CEO has an amazing flair for great products and better showmanship. But, as John Heilemann wonders in this week’s magazine, will the Cult of Jobs be enough to get him through a burgeoning options-backdating scandal?
