Most Expensive Houses – 2010

This was published by Yahoo.com and I was amazed and shocked by how much expensive the houses were! They manage to live in this humongous  house and yet a lot of people are just living at the street walks or under the train station or under the bridge.

 I wonder how would my life be if I were given one of this houses!

Completed in July, this new estate features 30,000 sq. ft. of interior space, including 12 bedrooms, 15 full bathrooms and four half baths, a theater, indoor basketball court, 65-ft. pool, and a tennis court. Broker Dennis McCormack says this is the third largest house in Alpine, a small town that has also been home to such celebrities as Chris Rock and Britney Spears. If the house sells for the asking price of $68 million, it would be New Jersey’s most expensive home sale ever, McCormack says.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, plus certain cool features similar ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other visitors related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on single of those will center on that item, along with another set of « neighbors » will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or visitors. Speaking of viewers, the Zune « Social » is also big fun, letting you find others with shared tastes plus becoming friends with them. You then know how to listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is in addition enjoyable. Those concerned with privateness will be relieved to know you can stop the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
