Hopefully not coming to a cafe near you: a talking coffee maker that always brews the perfect cuppa joe. MIT undergraduates Joseph Kay, 20, and Niko Matsakis, 18, lured Comdex attendees to spend a few moments with Mr. Java, a coffee machine that recognizes a user's personal drink preferences.

In a tale of deception worthy of a spy novel, a big Los Angeles real estate fraud case has been rocked by a sting carried out by a prosecution informant who secretly defected to the defense and videotaped the chief investigator making sexual advances toward her. The trap was set last year by a former girlfriend and employee of Kevin S. Merritt, who is charged with 32 counts of defrauding poor and elderly clients of his real estate lending and investment business.

One of post-Soviet Russia's most powerful oligarchs, Badri Patarkatsishvili, left a business empire worth billions of dollars when he died of a heart attack in England on Feb. 12 last year. What he didn't leave, according to his family, was a will. But two days later, an obscure New York lawyer named Emanuel Zeltser appeared at the wake and told the grieving widow that her late husband had signed a secret will, given him power of attorney, and named a half-cousin in Florida as executor.
