Apple Apple have updated the Mac Mini. It now sports an aluminium (no, I am not going to spell it "aluminum") enclosure, an HDMI port, an internal PSU (no power-brick!) and oddly, an SD card slot in the back. There's also an access hole on the bottom to change the RAM easily.

The very reasons that make the iPad such a huge success are the very reasons that Techies don't get it. If one product above all induces TAC its the iPad. Techies say "but Apple has an iron grip and is killing our freedoms" (people want safety much more than some obscure technical freedom), "the iPad doesn't have [insert any number of features that consumers don't care about]", "its not a real computer" (exactly).

Nice strawman.

The techies, Apple haters included, and Thom excluded, widely consider iPad a very nice product, and one of the better things to happen in tech industry recently. Everybody really wants the tablet market to emerge, and who would be better slated (eh) to do it than Apple?

The deal about iPad is that the rest of the industry needs to get their shit together and start delivering alternative tablets that work as well (or almost as well, even).
