In this photo taken Oct. 30, 2012, a floppy disk drive, left, and a cassette tape data drive for a Commodore 64 personal computer are shown, at the Living Computer Museum in Seattle. For tourists with an interest in Seattle’s role as a high-tech hub, there hasn’t been much here to see, other than driving over to Microsoft headquarters in suburban Redmond to take pictures of a bunch of boring buildings. But Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has just opened the Living Computer Museum, with displays of old machines _ all in working order _ along with a geeky wish list of items he’d like to add, just in case anybody out there has an old tape drive or supercomputer sitting around.

This aerial photo of Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012, shows the New York skyline and harbor. The vast destruction wreaked by the storm surge in New York could have been prevented with a sea barrier of the type that protects major cities in Europe, some scientists and engineers say. The multibillion-dollar price tag of such a project has been a hindrance, but may appear more palatable after the damage from Superstorm Sandy has been tallied. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan)
