In Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed ($41), the photographer esteemed Frederic Chaubin reveals ninety buildings located in fourteen former Soviet Republics that display what could be considered as the 4th age of Soviet architecture.

Something tells me Apple's product line is going to get a whole lot smaller. The LG UltraFine Display ($700+)) is specifically designed for the new Macbook Pro. The price point isn't cheap but is contains features which make it much more than a high-quality display. One of the best features is that the new displays will charge the new Macbook pros utilizing the same cable that transmits the video and audio. This means no other cables are needed other than the main video cable that plugs into the USB-C ports.Because the USB-C cable can transmit data, you can use any of the four USB-C ports on the display to connect accessories like external hard drives.Other bennies include a built-in webcam, microphones, and a 27-inch model with 5K resolution which is 7x's better than 1080p. The 21.5-inch model which is available now has a 4K display with three USB-C ports.
