Mac mini in Popular Science
Friday May 20, 2005

The June issue of Popular Science Magazine has an article about the Mac mini entitled Mac of All Trades on pages 87-88. The article covers the Mac mini in the living room and in the car, as well as setting the mini up as a web server and phone switch box. We are pleased to report the article mentions 123Macmini.com. "Within hours of the Mini's announcement weeks before it started shipping the Web was abuzz with riffs on all the things one could do with such a small and cheap Mac, and Mini dedicated websites such as 123Macmini.com and Modmini.com began popping up soon thereafter" Also included in the article is a brief piece on upgrading the Mac mini and a mention of our friends over at MacVroom.com. If you subscribe to Popular Science or are near a newsstand, check it out!

That illustration is pretty cool. I like the built-in car keys because I'm always losing mine. Maybe Steve Job has the same problem and we'll see it in the next mini! Laughing

Oh that guy is awesome! His car made me drool! All joking a side maybe there's a real world use for mounting things to the side of the mini. What if there was a USB/ FireWire port that poped out the side facing forward. That'd be cool!
