Were I ever to move to New York, I know one of the key places that I would want to live. Downtown, designed by Philippe Starck, sits directly across from the New York Stock Exchange (as you can observe from the rooftop park) in the old JP Morgan building. While I could wax rhapsodic for days on this amazing location, the price tag is still a bit out of my range – the smallest available unit is offered at $1,160,000 plus $606.60 in monthly charges for the common areas and over $1250 in taxes. And let’s be honest, we would need a bit more room… So, let’s up the price to at least $1,695,000 for a unit that has a couple of home offices in addition to the master bedroom, and a terrace.

Ed Felton presents a great explanation of one of the key problems with Diebold’s electronic voting machines. More importantly, he explains the issue in very simple, straight-forward terms. This is an easy article for anyone to read, and everyone should as it may well have a major impact on this year’s elections.

Paparazzi! is a great OS X app that produces a full size screen shot of a Web page, which can save a fair amount of time compared to the old method of capturing multiple screen shots and piecing them together in Photoshop.
