To protect my iPad, I have a nice leather case.  When I bought it, I never really cared much about the case, I just got it because it had a bluetooth keyboard that came attached to it (with magnets).  However, it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be and certainly wasn’t worth the money.  The iPad’s virtual keyboard was far easier to type on as the bluetooth keyboard keys were far too small and easy to hit something you didn’t want and having a bluetooth keyboard sucked the iPad battery dry very quickly.  So, I tossed the keyboard and just use it as a case.  However, I might be willing to part with it to make my iPad look like Worf’s uniform!

Etsy seller KnitterWho is selling this awesome knitted Star Trek TNG Worf’s uniform iPad case for just $30.  Any iPad owning Star Trek: The Next Generation fan will love this!

One thing I should note is that they are calling this a cozy rather than a case and I’m not sure what the difference is.  Considering it covers more than just the screen, I wouldn’t call it a cover so I would say it more fits the definition of a case but what do I know?  Perhaps calling it an iPad sleeve would be the most accurate but I guess it doesn’t really matter much.

Who is your favorite Star Trek captain?  Kirk?  Picard?  Janeway?  My favorite is Sisko although I don’t think there are any that I don’t like (although I can’t say I am fond of the Kirk in the new Star Trek movies).  Well, no matter who you favorite captain is, as long as you love Star Trek and the look of 8-bit video games, you are going to love this awesome shirt!

The awesome Star Trek fans over at ThinkGeek are selling this awesome Choose Your Captain Star Trek shirt for $19.99-21.99 depending on the size.  It is a great way to start a conversation with somebody as everybody has a favorite Star Trek captain.  However, you might want to be careful because if they have a different favorite captain than you, it might turn into a big argument.

Anybody who knows me or is an avid Global Geek News reader knows that I have a major pizza addiction.  If I don’t have at least two pizzas a week (on Monday and Thursdays unless some life or death situation gets in the way), I am not the most pleasant person to be around and I become a bit paranoid.  Well, more paranoid than usual.  Anyway, I’m not one for making my own pizza but if I did, I would do my best to replicate this amazing Dalek pizza!

I’m not sure who made this delicious looking Dalek pizza so if you know, please let us know in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!  I’d say this is a far better looking pizza than the Dalek pizza I posted like a year and a half ago but I wouldn’t turn my nose up at that one either.

MASTICATE!

Angry Birds cakes and Star Wars cakes are quite common these days, but you don’t see too many Angry Birds Star Wars cakes.  In fact, I think the only one I have seen before today is the Angry Birds Star Wars cake I posted a while back with a giant Chewbacca bird on it.  Well, as nice as that cake was, it can’t hold a candle to this amazing Angry Birds Star Wars cake!

This beautiful Angry Birds Star Wars cake was created by Lori’s Sweet Cakes for her son’s 7th birthday.  I hope her son realizes just how lucky he is to get a multiple tier cake for his birthday, much less one that looks this good!  My mom used to be a cake maker and I don’t even get cakes like this!

For those unfamiliar with the movies or at least the game, the levels represent The Death Star (the top), the middle layer is Tatooine, and the bottom layer is Hoth.  No details on what kind of cake it is though.

Stained glass feels like a bit of a lost art these days because there are so few people that know how to make it.  It is still a pretty common thing to see in churches, but when was the last time you saw a lot of stained glass outside a religious building?  The fact that it is so rare is one of the reasons I post any nerdy stained glass I come across.

In the past, I have posted a 3D stained glass TARDIS and a 2D stained glass TARDIS with a bit more detail.  However, I think this TARDIS stained glass lantern blow those out of the water!

Etsy seller piecesofmyart is selling this Doctor Who TARDIS stained glass lantern for $150.  The lantern measures 5.5″ x 5.5″ x 14″ and takes 4 weeks to be made as they are made to order.  If you are a Doctor Who fan, this would be the perfect lantern to light any dark areas where there may be Weeping Angels hiding in the shadows!

Despite the fact that it seems like I have posted tons of Star Wars cakes (just search Star Wars cake on the right to find them all), I can’t recall any of them being an Imperial Star Destroyer cake.  Well, I think it is time for the Star Destroyer to take its spotlight in the cake world and I would say it is off to an amazing start with this Imperial Star Destroyer cake that even lights up!

Star Wars fan Lorenzo Wood made this spectacular Imperial Star Destroyer cake for his son Alexander’s birthday.  I’d say this kid is lucky to have one cool dad!

If the pictures and video below of the cake have you wondering just how this Star Destroyer birthday cake was made, check out the Flickr album where you can see a ton of pictures of the building process of this cake.

Come to the Dark Side!  We have cake!
