Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Forbes for December 14th, 2009 from Audible. This edition contains seven feature articles.

In the cover story, "When Google Runs Your Life" - Eric Schmidt wants to merge play and work on the desktop. Is that such a terrible thing?

Also, "The Death of the PC" - Well, not quite yet. But among corporate customers, the future is beginning to look very uncertain.

Next, "The China Bubble" - China's economy is humming along in high gear, thanks to a fast-growing pile of dicey debt. Such booms tend to end badly.

Then, "The Art of Being Charles Saatchi" - Reclusive and outrageous, the former adman and current avant-garde art collector has created his own cult.

Followed by, "Moses Signed My Bible" Autographed first editions are a cool way to collect rare books. Forgers think so, too.

We'll also tell you about, "The Art of War" - Christopher Brownfield smuggled artwork out of the Green Zone. That's one small victory for the starving artists of Baghdad.

And in our final story, "A Fortune in Your Closet?" Those 1985 Air Jordans could be worth something.
