What We Were Reading While We Should Have Been Working

Your Monday afternoon lunch break link bait. 

The passive house's staircase. 

Google Barge to Be Floating Retail Store: So, it's not a Wall-E factory after all? Sigh. [H/t: SFGate]

SF's Power Elite: We think that the Chron is pitching us a few stories for next year's Power Issue. [H/t: SFGate]

Murder over Playstation 4 in the Bayview: Yikes. [H/t: SFist]

McDonald's Wants to Get in on Mid-Market Revival: Carl's Jr. and Burger King are already there. Doesn't the opposition to the King seem like closing the barn doors after the cows have been turned into pink slime? [H/t: Beyond Chron]

Meet San Francisco's First "Passive" House: The German design is supposed to use 90% less energy than a typical house. [Curbed SF]

Moishe's Pippic to Close: Oy. [H/t: Hayeswire]

Amazon Developing Delivery Drones: Nothing involving an "octocopter" can go wrong. Nothing at all. [H/t: SF Business Times]

J.J. Abrams Admits that Star Trek: Into Darkness Was Terrible: Face it. The only reason he's in charge of Star Wars now is that the only movies worse than Into Darkness were the Lucas prequels. [H/t: The Dissolve]
