Steinway & Sons might be best known for their pianos … some of the finest in the world … but now they're looking to get into the living rooms of really rich guys who don't play piano in addition to those who do. Hence their new "Model D" stereo system, a half-ton, $150,000 behemoth that's probably nicer than whatever iPod dock you're currently using as a stereo. It's really classed up by the piano lacquer that it's finished with, and only 100 will be made. Hurry now, before they run out! [BornRich via Crave]

The World Wide Web is officially old enough for us judge what it's produced. That's right, it's time for the world to start building a canon of the most significant websites of all time, and the Gizmodo staff has opinions.
Somewhere between a second and a millennium from now, you will die. Your body and all of its parts will cease functioning and rejoin the Earth as regular, lifeless stuff. The Earth, too, will die, engulfed by an expanding, ageing Sun. The Sun will burn off all of its fuel and end up a white dwarf, then burn out and die. The Milky Way will collide with nearby Andromeda, and form a large, elliptical galaxy, which will die by losing all of its stars to intergalactic space. The corpses of those remaining stars will die, decaying into their constituent parts. The universe will age onward, until all matter is either stored in black holes or floating as free elementary particles. Those black holes will evaporate, and then universe will die. All that was will be an icy cold nothing, forever.
