So I created a Cube in Blender and then I created an Empty beside the Cube (in object mode). Now, when I move the Empty around, the Cube follows... Why?

You more than likely hit O by accident, this enables proportional editing in object mode just as it does in edit mode and can cause nearby objects to mimic the one(s) being transformed.

Just turn it off by clicking the blue icon or by pressing O again.

Sounds like the cube is parented to the empty, making it follow it's transformations. You can remove the parenting by selecting the cube and pressing AltP.

Parenting relations can be set up by first selecting the child object(s), and then adding the parent object to selection making it the active object, and hitting CtrlP
