12 Very Useful Things I've Learned From Designers - These simple ideas can make life at home more efficient and enjoyable. Some of my favorites:
Apple Continues Silicon Valley Expansion - Apple has grabbed a building in north San Jose that's part of a site where the fast-growing company could eventually assemble enough property for 3,000 workers.
The 202,000-square-foot building that Apple has leased is located at 2509 Orchard Parkway near Trimble Road, according to multiple sources familiar with the rental deal.
Bay Area first: Wood-burning heating devices to be banned in new homes - Wood-burning heaters -- including modern pollution-fighting wood stoves -- will not be permitted in new homes built in the Bay Area starting next fall, as part of a first-in-the-nation ban approved by air quality regulators Wednesday. The new rules, approved unanimously by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, will also require every seller of an existing home with a wood-burning fireplace to give buyers a disclosure statement warning of the health risks of wood smoke.
What a trip to Silicon Valley taught me - Your home is becoming an API, which is technical speak for Application Protocol Interface. Properties are already connected to the outside world through Wi-Fi systems, smartphone home management apps, content-streaming entertainment devices, home security, and more will follow. What you know about your property will be just as important as what your property will know about you!
Bay Area home sales surge as buyers roll into the suburbs - Across the bay in Santa Clara County, the median price held at $925,000 for the third straight month, a shade below the $947,000 peak price set in June.
Alameda: Demand for city's commercial properties likely to rise - Demand for commercial rental properties will likely increase in Alameda, a spinoff from the Bay Area's real estate boom that has tenants scrambling for spots that are cheaper than what's available in San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
