Notch’s New Mansion Created in Minecraft

After becoming obscenely wealthy from the sale of Minecraft to Microsoft, Markus “Notch” Persson, creator of the game, outbid Jay Z to buy a luxurious Beverly Hills mansion last week. Now, an industrious Minecraft player has recreated Notch’s new home in-game.

Dan Bovey, creator of the facsimile, has made the model available for download through his Planet Minecraft page.

Notch, $2.5 billion richer after selling his game studio Mojang to Microsoft, has now retired from the company. In a blog post in September, shortly after leaving the company he founded, Notch promised “If I ever accidentally make something that seems to gain traction, I’ll probably abandon it immediately”.

The 105-inch Samsung Curved Ultra HD TV Will Shrink Your Budget by $120,000

Anyone with the space and budget, of course, looking to buy themselves a new TV should consider saving up for Samsung’s 105-inch curved Ultra HD TV. Though this is not your ordinary living room apartment TV, it does fit very well in a spacious estate or mansion. People owning such a property and are movie marathon enthusiasts should know that Samsung just made the TV available for pre-order at about the same price as us common folks would loan from a bank to buy a car, namely $120,000.

For anyone that missed its reveal back at CES, the TV is one of the largest in the world and boasts both Ultra HD resolution and curved OLED technology. The resolution on the TV is said to be 5,120 x 2,160, with about 11 million pixels and a 21:9 aspect ratio. Though many 4K videos have some black bars on the side, given the small resolution compared to the humongous screen, it is said that many blockbusters are shot in 21:9.

It is said that besides the TV that will amaze all your friends, family and even dog, owners of the Samsung UN105S9W are also provided with the “Samsung Elite Service”. What the service does is send a Samsung engineer to your home, estate mansion, etc, to help you install it, optimize it for the room your want to put it in and show you all the features it bears. Samsung is said to also provide an optional wall mount for the TV for those who want to have the giant on their “Berlin wall”. The ‘optional’ feature does state that the mount has to be paid for separately, but if you are willing to give this much for a TV, it surely means you can afford a wall mount as well.

Proud owners of such a TV should also be relieved to know that Samsung has added its Evolution Kit support to it, meaning that you can upgrade its hardware (such as connectors) as soon as new technologies appear on the market.
