Now, however, Apple has come up with something that I think is rather clever. The Mac mini is a tiny thing, being about the size of five stacked CD jewel cases, and weighing only about three pounds.
Despite its diminutive size, it still manages to have all the bits and pieces you'd expect from a personal computer, apart from a keyboard, display, and mouse.
Apple have also announced the iPod shuffle, a tiny little MP3 player built around a 1 gigabyte flash memory. That's enough for a couple of hundred tracks.
So am I about to buy some Apple stuff for the first time in my life? No. The shitty way that Apple behaves, particularly with their take on Digital Rights Management, stops me from giving them any of my pennies.
