What We’re Reading: July 6 – July 12

eBook pricing, real estate infographics, and a remarkable life rediscovered on Wikipedia

Apple lost its ebook price fixing case brought by the Department of Justice. The real winner? Maybe it’s Amazon…

The most interesting man in the world? This is quite a life according to Wikipedia:

Lieutenant-General Sir Adrian Paul Ghislain Carton de Wiartserved in the Boer War, First World War, and Second World War, was shot in the face, head, stomach, ankle, leg, hip and ear, survived a plane crash, tunneled out of a POW camp, and bit off his own fingers when a doctor refused to amputate them. He later said “frankly I had enjoyed the war.”

And that’s just the first paragraph! The rest of his biography is pretty amazing too…

Infographics have become a popular way of presenting an abundance of data in an easy to digest format. You see them online, in the media, and even on TV. Of course real estate information is well represented. Pinterest user and digital consultancy firm Yakadanda has collected some great real estate related infographics in one place.

Are your dogs bored and lonely at home?  DirectTV  is launching DOGTV next month, to keep your dog entertained while you are working.  Programming includes relaxation, exposure to different sounds and stimulation.  Since dogs can’t see red and green, shows are broadcast in blue and yellow.
