- Vimeo now available on your Apple TV thanks to latest software update.
Vimeo has some great HD content, it's nice to see this appear on the little black TV box from Apple. Besides the welcomed support of Vimeo to this little device, you can also stream your purchased television shows directly from the cloud. This will work for your previously purchased television shows as well which is nice.

- Apple finally pulls the curtain back on Macbook Pro notebook refresh.
Said notebook refresh brings the 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pros over to speedier Intel i5 and i7 chips. According to some early benchmarks these machines are about 50% faster than the previous generation. Sadly, the 13-inch model is still stuck in Core 2 Duo land.

- Updated MacBook Pro notebook configurations finally coming out this week?
It certainly wouldn't be the first time that rumors like this have come around and it certainly won't be the last time either. I'll be patiently refreshing the Apple Store website tomorrow morning just in case though.

- Macbook Pro models might be getting an update in the very near future.
This news comes after a Best Buy employee snapped a pic of their inventory screen with old models no longer being available for order. Oh, and the Apple Store is also down this morning. Coincidence? Eh, who knows.

- Apple sends out invites for press event scheduled for January 27th.
The text on the colorful invite simply says 'come see our latest creation'. Most of the major news sites (especially Fox News who claims they have a confirmation from an inside source) are convinced that the we will finally get a glimpse of the non-fabled tablet in the very near future.

- GLM gets some hardware upgrades, and there was much rejoicing.
It's certainly been a fun couple of days around here what with all of these recent server issues and 'SERVICE UNAVAILABLE' alerts. But my dear readers, I have some wonderful news. I am pleased to announce (to those of you who can actually who can see this post - DNS has not fully propagated, if you're reading this - congratulations!) that GLM has undergone some significant hardware boosts.
So, what are you looking at exactly? NOTHING. Nothing at all. Well, nothing that you can actually see on the surface that is. The backend code, structure, database and all of the fun magic (aka magical tiny lemmings) that go into making GLM work have been ported over to modern hardware and completely streamlined to make use of said modern hardware. The end result is a much faster and more responsive GeekLikeMe for you all to enjoy. Now if you'll excuse me - it's back to work on some new features and weekdaily link posting. Stay tuned!

- Latest Palm WebOS update doesn't attempt any shifty iTunes syncing.
The free update weighs in at 126MB and brings with it dozens of tiny tweaks that improve the Palm experience. But if you were waiting for the resurrection of the Palm iTunes sync, you're out of luck: WebOS 1.3.1 does no such thing.

- Apple drops support for Atom processors in latest Mac OS X software update.
Thinking of purchasing a Dell Mini laptop with the sole purpose of putting Mac OS X on it? Apple would prefer it if you just bought a laptop from them instead. Now pony up.

- Server Issues and GLM Updates.
Well, as you can see we've been having some server troubles as of late. I'm still trying to work out these issues as to avoid any further downtime. So in the meantime, if you happen to see a message that says 'SERVICE UNAVAILABLE' just know somewhere behind the scenes tiny lemmings are furiously trying to get the site back up and running.
I guess I can also take this post as an opportunity to give you all a GLM state of the union. The redesign from June turned out to be a mild success as GLM has enjoyed a small boost in general web traffic more so than we used to get before. The big news is that I'm hoping to have several new features incorporated into the site before the year is out. Some of them relate to user-generated content (you might be able to guess where thats going) while some of the updates pertain to brand new features (no, I'm not telling what they are).
So that's about it in a nutshell. Oh, I encourage everyone to use the 'Discuss' feature on every post - this place just seems to be too quiet. Help me liven it up with a little idle chatter. Cheers!
