Which 3D printer will be the one sitting on my and everyone else's desk?

I do think that pretty soon everyone will have a 3D printer at home--but which one? I'm looking to invest in a company that makes and/or sells them, but I have never invested on my own before and have no idea how to choose the company that will be the right one. I realize that the stock market is all about speculation and uncertainty, but can someone point me in the right direction so I can at least make an informed decision? I don't have any real life friends who are investors, either, so I turn to your collective wisdom. Thank you!

Tell me about investing as a hobby!

I've always had an interest in the stock market and investing but have only given it a small amount of attention. I was recently trying to come up with ideas for a hobby and realized that (a) investing is something I have had a long standing interest in and (b) it's something that people can do as a hobby! What are some resources/guides/books for learning as much as possible about this? [more inside]

My bank wants to change. Is this good or bad?

Why is my bank becoming a stock savings bank rather than a mutual savings bank and is this a good or bad thing for me? Please assume complete, total and embarrassing financial ignorance in your reply: I know absolutely nothing, possibly less than nothing, about money, economics, banking, stocks and finance.

Real-time stock web service

I need a very simple stock quote web service that I can get at programatically. Everything I've found is either non-real time ("delayed 10 minutes") or not programatically available (i.e. an embedded java webpage that only works in IE.) I'd even screen scrape if they let me. I will obviously pay for this service. I don't need charts or anything fancy beyond real time data for any of the major exchanges (I'm not picky.)

University Restaurant in Spain

I need to get a high-resolution (1 MB) photograph of any university restaurant in Spain for an article I'm writing. I had a contact fall through on me at the last minute and need something fast. I've searched some image data banks online and have drawn a blank. Anyway, I'd prefer something original, not stock. Any ideas? I thought about paying a student a bit of money to take a photograph. Problem is, I don't know any university students in Spain.
