The Form genre of the Mac mini?
"The interesting effect above in the photo came out when I took a picture of the Mac mini and on the wall came a light image and a reflection in reverse and it led me to think of the reflections of form upon technology. The transitory nature of appliance form and all technical research in general that is gained when we metaphorically stand upon the shoulders of those who went before us."

Hi Charles, and anyone else reading.
The more I use the Mac mini the more amazing I think it is. I look down at the G3 and the comparison in size leaves me to think, it is just not the form which is great design, it is the convenient size as well. I was running a large file render tonight here and at 324 MB allocated for the job of my 512 totaland the performance compared well with the iMac G5, it of course it was slower but the job was done minus the music. I really think a lot of the Mac fraternity have just not yet looked carefully at this computer and thought about it, thinking its just a low cost switcher device. But it is so much more. The amazing Mac mini, thats why I have ordered another one. LOL
I did that once before with the early Macs. History does repeat itself and at least in the case of the Mac mini form does follow well designed function. Ah how sweet it is, to see Apple do something for which the rest really have no answer.
Great design is very hard to come by. The Mac mini really is a milestone product.
Regards
