comment How to Make a Lego Claw Arm?
@J.Walker I've built another model claw that doesn't extend, but it's not as reliable as the extending claw (and requires many, many more pieces). I'll see if I can make any more improvements before I share the design.

comment Lego Digital Designer Alternatives
"And LDD is discontinued so I doubt Lego will make an EV3 update." The DESIGN byME service was discontinued January 2012, but I believe Lego Digital Designer is still being supported.

comment does Lego make bricks with a stone, brick or concrete block design?
Since the brick was produced (some time last year) it can be found almost everywhere, it's already appeared in many official LEGO sets and MOC's and it's getting cheaper over time

comment Will Mindstorms EV3 be backwards compatible?
It should be possible to run use some elements from the RCX system by using a converter. See: Can I use RCX sensors and motors with the NXT brick?

comment What are some storage options?
Those wall-mounted plastic bins in the second example are actually used in professional LEGO model workshops. They're hard wearing and very easy to use but they can also be very pricey!

comment What do the terms “vintage” and “classic” actually mean?
As for the definition of vintage. I tend to think of early sets like the original town plan with more realistic trees, vehicles that you couldn't put together or take apart and buildings made out of standard white and red bricks.
