When Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater was completed in 1937, it was both an artistic accomplishment and a marvel of engineering. The residence's design—set above a waterfall—is meant to evoke harmony between house and nature, and it achieves that through cantilevered floors supported by reinforced concrete, a technology that was relatively new at the time. The design was so daring that Fallingwater's engineer actually had a support wall put in—and Wright subsequently took a layer of bricks out to prove his original design was sound. This Lego recreation leaves the bricks in.
At Amazon, an 800-brick Lego Architecture Fallingwater set is $77, which is a solid 23% off the MRSP and most other stores on the internet. Waterfall and genius not included. [Amazon]

For the Second Weekend In a Row, Best Buy's Running a Killer Apple Sale
Last Friday's deal of the day was Best Buy's promotion on iMacs, where they took $150 off a slew of 2012 iMac models. It felt like a rehash of Best Buy's MacBook Air promotion back in January. Well, it looks like they're making a habit of hit: for the next two days, a whole bunch of Retina MacBook Pros have had prices cut by $150, bringing many to historical lows for new models. The pick of the litter is the entry-level 13" for $1350. Update: And Amazon has price-matched. That's probably where I'd buy mine: you might skip tax and Prime shipping is hard to beat.
