Having a small safe for keeping little things out of the hands of the other people in your house of apartment can be quite convenient.  I’m not talking about some 75 pound fireproof safe, but something small enough that can sit on your desk and hold important items like a watch, ring or perhaps a Roku remote.  Well, if you love Doctor Who and have an iPhone or Android phone, I think I have found the perfect small safe for you!

The nerderific folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this Doctor Who TARDIS Smart Safe that uses iPhones and Android phones for just $49.99!

How does this safe work exactly since there isn’t an obvious key slot?  Apparently you slide your Android or iPhone into the top of the TARDIS safe which activates a pressure switch, then you have to launch an app and enter a security code and presto!  The TARDIS light will blink, the materialization sound will be played and the door will pop open (assuming you entered the right code).  Pretty cool huh?

If you are a Doctor Who fan with a desire to keep small things out of the hands of others, you can’t go wrong with this phone activated TARDIS safe!

If there is one thing I don’t eat near enough of, it would be cupcakes (although my pants might disagree since I need to lose weight rather than gain it).  It is probably a good thing there are rarely ever any around because I would eat them all and you would need a forklift just to get me out of bed.

Well, speaking of those delicious baked goods known as cupcakes, I have stumbled across some rather fantastic looking Doctor Who cupcakes.

Unfortunately, I don’t know who made these cool Doctor Who cupcakes that feature the TARDIS, a Dalek, the Doctor Who logo and an infinity symbol but whoever made them did a great job.  If you know who made them, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit for their amazing work!

Must not go to the store and buy cupcakes…must not go to the store and buy cupcakes…must not go to the store and buy cupcakes…  Ok, I think the urge has passed.

Crap!  I just looked at the cupcakes again.  Where are my car keys?

The first step to overcoming an addiction is to admit that you have an addiction and my addiction is geeky t-shirts from those t-shirt a day sites that sell great shirts for dirt cheap.  It is not an addiction I really want to overcome but it is either that or convert my basement into a giant closet for all of my geeky t-shirts because I have outgrown my bedroom closet.

While I am trying to cut back on the number of shirts I buy, there are shirts like the one below that are absolutely necessary for me to own.

If you have been reading Global Geek News for any length of time, you probably know I am a HUGE fan of the geeky artwork by Megan Lara and generally buy any shirt with her artwork on it.  Well, now there is another shirt I am going to be buying that I think any Doctor Who fan will love!

The geeky people over at TeeFury are selling this Doctor Who themed Amy Pond: The Girl Who Waited t-shirt today only for just $11!  The shirt is one of a series of similar Doctor Who shirts designed by Megan Lara and Omega Man 5000 and I think this one is my favorite (I have all of the others).  The t-shirt comes in either black, cream or dark chocolate (brown).

I haven’t decided which color shirt I am going to get as I normally prefer black since it usually makes the designs stand out a little better but since it is summer time and black isn’t exactly a cool color, I am debating choosing one of the other colors because nearly all of my shirts are already black and something cooler would be nice for the summer.  Which color are you going to get?  Let me know in the comments below!

Its not very often you see mash-ups between Star Trek and Star Wars despite the number of fans that love both.  I’m not quite sure why that is because I often see people combine one of those franchises with something else like Doctor Who or even Space Invaders but I have a feeling it has to do with the Star Wars vs Star Trek mentality.  I know a lot of geeks like to have that debate but I tend to be one of those can’t we all just get along kind of people.  I think if there was less fighting and more baking, we would have more awesome Star Trek and Star Wars mash-up cookies like the ones below!

Star Trek and Star Wars fan Klickitat Street is the creator of these delicious looking cookies that combine Star Wars with the cast of Star Trek: The Original Series.  No matter which franchise you prefer (I’m a Star Trek person myself although I enjoy both depending on my mood), you can’t deny how cute and utterly awesome these cookies are!

It should be pretty obvious by now that I am somewhat obsessed with geeky cakes.  I think by now I have posted a cake from pretty much every franchise beloved by geeks from Super Mario Bros to Star Trek yet I still get excited whenever I see a new one.  In the past, I have posted a ton of great Doctor Who wedding cakes that generally featured the TARDIS, Daleks or other Whovian favorites like Weeping Angels.  Well, this Doctor Who wedding cake is a bit different in that I don’t think there is a single element of it that has ever showed up in a cake I previously posted.

The fantastic Doctor Who wedding cake in the picture below features the infamous crack, the 4th Doctors scarf, a bunch of Gallifreyan writing and even the Master’s pocket watch!

Sadly, the Facebook fan page that I found this on as well as many other Doctor Who related things I post seems to refuse to give credit to the original creators of anything they post so I have no idea who created this cake.  If you know who created it and who the happy couple was that had this cake for their wedding, let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit!

In the past, I have posted some really cool Doctor Who cakes including a Dalek cake that might be mistaken for a real Dalek and even Matt Smith’s 30th birthday TARDIS cake.  However, as cool as those both are as well as the many other Doctor Who cakes I have posted, I think this Cyberman cake reigns supreme.

This Cyberman cake looks like it could be a kid that was converted into a real Cyberman!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who this lady is to give her credit for this amazing Cyberman cake creation so if any of you know who she is, please let us know in the comments below because she definitely deserves credit for making such a fantastic cake!

I would definitely say this Cyberman cake blows the previous Cyberman cake that I posted right out of the time vortex.

I wish somebody would make me a cake like this!  I don’t have a wish to be deleted, I just love Doctor Who!

If you have ever had a Doctor Who cake made for you (or a geeky cake of any kind for that matter), let us know in the comments and share some pictures with us.
