Tim Cook appears on NBC's Rock Center for an exclusive interview with Brian Williams.Tim Cook appears on NBC's Rock Center for an exclusive interview with Brian Williams.

If you happen to be an avid fan of all things Apple (such as myself) then this video will most likely appeal to you. Watch as Tim Cook and Brian Williams take a stroll through some of the Manhattan retail stores and discuss everything from recent battles with Samsung to the long rumored Apple television. Oh, and if you didn't already know - Apple will also start making a Mac line here in the States next year too (belated spoiler alert).

While most sites pointed to this week as the possible refresh of the line AllThingsD says that all said rumor mills have been off by a week. They predict that the new MacBook Air will contain Intel's Sandy Bridge processors, Thunderbolt ports, flash storage in the realm of 128 gigabytes or 256 gigabytes. Lastly, the backlit keyboard may make a triumphant return.

Google would like you to know that they will easily pass ten million G+ users soon.Google would like you to know that they will easily pass ten million G+ users soon.

My latest estimate tonight shows approximately 9.5 million users. This suggests that 2.2 million people have joined Google+ in the past 32-34 hours. I project that Google will easily pass 10 million users tomorrow and could reach 20 million user by this coming weekend if they keep the Invite Button available. As one G+ user put it, it is easy to underestimate the power of exponential growth.

You can always count on a Photoshop contest to reveal the true nature of popular products and services. You'll also get a quick education about the popular consensus of said product and/or service. Handy and redundant.

Although it would be cool to look at a puzzle rug on most days something tells me that a puzzle rug would not be able to provide that much warmth. It's a probably a bitch to vacuum said puzzle rug as well.

Google reveals URL shortening service for some of their products.Google reveals URL shortening service for some of their products.

Google said that it may eventually roll out the service as a standalone site, but that for now it's being built into Google products. Such a feature would likely allow third party sites to build Goo.gl link shortening into their own products.

I'm guessing that this sequel would probably feature an up to date cast utilizing some of Disney's newer characters which range from Pixar's catalogue all the way over to the newly acquired Marvel library.  Can't be any worse than Looney Tunes: Back in Action, can it? Wait, maybe it can.
