NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

This week's Fab 5 is hosted by Mac King.

Mac picked five of his most creative, original stories that he loves and we hope you do, too.

Everything in your phone: Mac explored how smart phones these days are full of all the gadgets and items that we used to have to carry around.

Make your own music app: Mac shows us the app that lets music lovers who are short on talent take center stage with just a few swipes and clicks on their phone.

Who needs the funnies?:  The Sunday funny pages used to be a staple of American life. Mac finds out whether people still actually read the funnies. If they don't, why not and what has replaced them?

Curling: Curling is one of those sports that people pay attention to every four years during the Winter Olympics. Mac hit the ice to learn how to sweep the ice and make that rock move.

Square knishes return: The knish craze is in full swing. Mac heads to Katz's deli and talks to happy customers who are enjoying digging into their knishes again.
