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).

Details are scarce at this point but a posting on Rock Band's Facebook page promises to 'innovate and revolutionize the music genre once again, just as Harmonix did with the original Rock Band'.

The quantity of water present at the lunar poles is significant,' Spudis writes; 'at the north pole alone, the 600 million metric tons of water there -- turned into rocket fuel -- is enough to launch the equivalent of one Space Shuttle (735 mT of propellant) per day for over 2000 years.'

Give yourself the gift of crowd avoidance: During the week, the rink is significantly less packed, so play hooky and get your glide on. If you can’t cut out of work, haul out of bed on a weekend morning and beeline to 30 Rock; the rink opens at 8am.

Touch Arcade gets some hands-on time with Rock Band: iPhone.Touch Arcade gets some hands-on time with Rock Band: iPhone.

playing the tracks in the iPhone Rock Band works just like its console big brother in that every note you miss causes the music to be interrupted. This seems to add so much more to the game than just tapping along to a song like other similar games on the platform...

The first and much bigger crash is set for 7:31 a.m. EDT. That's when an empty rocket that weighs 2.2 tons should hit the crater Cabeus and create a minicrater about half the size of an Olympic pool. It should kick up a plume of lunar debris about six miles high.

David Bowie officially joins Rock Band lineup... in LEGO form.David Bowie officially joins Rock Band lineup... in LEGO form.

Bowie will also be joined by a LEGO version of Iggy Pop. I'm still not understanding the whole Rock Band / LEGO connection. Perhaps the union is meant to function as a metaphor to emphasize the building blocks of music. Or maybe it's just cross-marketing gone berserk.

Daily Grind: Determined

Name: Vin (aka flummox the lummox)
How Vin feels today: Determined @ 10:05:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: Knock out some looming work projects and other small web-related tasks that I want off my plate as soon as possible.

Music Stuck in Head: Yellow Submarine / The Beatles
I've been playing a lot of Beatles: Rock Band lately.

Stuff to do today:

  • Continue coding furiously to hit upcoming work deadline
  • When not coding attempt to mockup a new DotComic
  • Yes, I'm still attempting to add new entries to that section
  • Note that Beatles: Rock Band is a lot of fun - although kind of short
  • 45 songs? That's it? Where is Day in the Life or HELP?
  • The answer will be revealed in DLC format
  • Continue messing around with Snow Leopard
  • (which also happens to be the but of the soon-to-be-penned DotComic entry)

What's actually a surprise from an IndustryGamers report on the matter is that even in our crummy economy, it's the $250 version of the game -- bundled with all the instruments -- that's performing so well that Dauman says he expects a sellout by November.
