Big Blue karma available for $55 million

Tech entrepreneurs looking for good karma and a New York pied a terre may be interested in the former home of IBM founder Thomas Watson Jr.

Forbes.com is calling the five-story, $55 million pad on the Upper East Side the 10th most expensive home for sale in the U.S.

The listing for 4 E. 75th St. was apparently taken down from the agent’s Web site, but it’s still visible in a Google cache.

Update: An astute reader pointed out that Thomas Watson Sr. founded IBM. I should have double checked the Forbes info. Here’s a quick bio of Junior, who is credited with building the company into a computer giant.
