    In May Donald Trump and his son Eric opened the ten-room Trump Albemarle Estate, a lavish bed-and-breakfast (rooms start at $399 a night this summer) near Charlottesville, Va. in a manse that–in case you’ve been living in the bottom of a chardonnay barrel for the last couple of decades–formerly belonged to the late media billionaire John Kluge, once America’s richest man. Trump paid just a fraction of the assessed worth of the property, which has a tangled history.

    When Gabriel Jacobs first began coding back in the 3G days of 2008, the ninth grader at New York City's Dalton School didn't tell his friends. He was too embarrassed. Staying up late teaching oneself how to code from YouTube videos was the opposite of cool. After all, Apple' iTunes App Store had just launched and celebrity-status billionaires like Instagram's Kevin Systrom and Snapchat's Evan Spiegel didn't yet exist.

    As anointments go, this one was big. Just minutes after Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella finished his keynote at his annual developer conference in late April, the leader of the world’s biggest software company handed the stage to a mild-mannered figure in a dark blazer and a T-shirt with his company’s whale logo on it. Ben Golub, the 47-year-old CEO of a startup called Docker, told the packed crowd how surprised he was that his unpolished new product has become such a big deal to Microsoft while still a toddler: “It occasionally stumbles; it occasionally spits up and keeps those closest to it up at night.”
