Apple's new store at Grand Central Station may be opening in the very near future.Apple's new store at Grand Central Station may be opening in the very near future.

9to5Mac has heard that Apple will officially announce the opening of the Grand Central Apple store this Tuesday and presumably pull the black boards to reveal the announcement.  This store garners extra special attention because it will be Apple’s largest in the world by square footage and resides in a building where 750,000 people pass daily and over 1,000,000 people during the holidays.

Apple Store definitely coming to Grand Central Station at some point in the near future.Apple Store definitely coming to Grand Central Station at some point in the near future.

According to The Real Deal, Apple will be shelling out $800,000 per year in rent, which seems a little high given that the previous tenant was paying about half that. As for me, I am both happy and sad for this news all at once. Happy because I will be frequenting this location quite often and sad because of the overall effect it will have on my bank account. The crowding of my overall commute to NYC will most likely be more annoying but I'll learn to live with it.

Escaped monkey manages to make time for several Facebook appearances.Escaped monkey manages to make time for several Facebook appearances.

Facebook: the only place where you can find photos of an escaped monkey and then read posts by that same monkey as he taunts the authorities. Is there anything social networking can't do?

Good news: after the 950th time, this person was finally able to pass the written exam. Bad news: there is still the little matter of passing the actual driving portion of the exam.
