- Before and after renderings of Apple's Fifth Avenue cube redesign.
The new Apple cube will sport only fifteen panes of glass as opposed to the previous use of a whopping ninety panes of glass. The cost of upgrading their iconic glass cube on Fifth Avenue? Just a mere $6.6 million bucks, which in reality is actually chump change for Apple. If you're interested in the technology behind how these giant peices of glass are actually made MacRumors points to this article over on ifoAppleStore.com.

- Warner would really like you to upgrade your DVD collection over to Blu-ray.
Do you have a whole bunch of Warner movies still festering on DVD? If those DVDs happen to be in their small list of seventy-five titles - you can upgrade them over to that fancy new Blu-ray format... for a small fee. What, did you think it was free? Silly human.

- Want to run Internet Explorer 9 on your Windows XP machine? Tough luck.
Microsoft has decided to give Windows XP users the finger and not allow them to use their latest and greatest web browser until they upgrade their OS over to Vista or Windows 7. Yet another reason why I'll be sticking with Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari or any other superior browser. Good work, Microsoft.

- 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.

- Google decides to start dropping support for Internet Explorer 6.
All it took was a couple of cyber attacks from the aging browser to warrant Google's position to drop support. Seriously, if you still use IE6 (or IE7 for that matter) - upgrade your browser. Your making the Internet cry.

- The Big Dipper constellation gets an upgrade via brand new star addition.
Alcor, the bright star that forms the bend in the dipper's 'handle,' has a dim red dwarf star orbiting it. They've put out this very pretty image, in which Alcor is renamed Alcor A, and its newly-found satellite star is called Alcor B.

- 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!

- Seven good reasons to switch over to Windows 7.
You complained, you demanded, and in response Microsoft slapped something together to ship October 22. The result? The overall presentation of Windows 7 is familiar enough to welcome XP users, but fundamentally it’s different enough to make you change the way you think of Microsoft.

- Firefox 3.5 officially released and available for your upgrading pleasure.
According to Mozilla, Firefox 3.5 is more than twice as fast as Firefox 3, and ten times as fast as Firefox 2. It would appear that speed is the name of the game with this update. I like speed, speed is good.
