Top links for today are…

  1. iPhone App Monitors Your Heart Rate: A new iPhone application currently awaiting approval from Apple, will monitor your heart rate via the built-in microphone (through either the onboard mic on the iPhone or through the mic/headset combo). The developer has released the above video demonstration.
  2. 11 Buildings Wrapped In Gorgeous Green And Living Walls: Frank Lloyd Wright once said, “A doctor can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.” It turns out that his suggestion is also a good idea for creating handsome buildings. And who wants to hide an investment in green away on the roof when you can hang it out for everyone to see?
  3. The 10 Worst Songs That Hit #1: You would think if a song went to #1 on the charts it would have some kind of redeeming quality. Even if it wasn’t your favorite genre of music, I’m sure you could find one reason why everybody was raving about it so much. So how do songs that have no originality or creativity whatsoever hit it big with the masses? The only guesses are good, old-fashioned stupidity or poor taste.
  4. America Must Rescue the Bonuses at Goldman Sachs: Michael Lewis: To its credit the government has thus far done pretty much all it can to prevent any suffering inside the firm. Its extreme sensitivity to Goldman’s pain is the only way to explain its actions thus far. But its approach has been crude; it has been using a sledgehammer to do a scalpel’s job. For instance, by banning the short-selling of shares in the amazing number of Wall Street-related companies that America apparently can’t live without (Moody’s Corp.?), it may have prevented Goldman from being driven out of business.
