New condos are hot again, and this time it's a luxury market, as Marilyn Alva writes in this terrific piece for Friday's Inside Real Estate section. (Would you buy a million-dollar condo sight unseen? That's happening.)

Can the Tesla Motors Model S go up against the BMW 5 Series and 7 Series, the Mercedes E/S class, the Audi A6, A7 and A8, and the Porsche Panamera?

They are all in the full-size luxury sedan segment that is up 10.4% in U.S. sales this year through May, but would be up only 0.8% if not for Tesla, says Jefferies analyst Elaine Kwei. Here's my story ...

So I tried a Google Chromebook and really liked it. Here's my review on why it excelled as a travel ultraportable laptop, in Thursday's +Investor's Business Daily.
