i'm way too tired to talk about it in great detail, but after some thought, i think i've drawn similar conclusions about the iPod Shuffle and the Mac Mini to my brother grayscalewolf who posted about it recently in his LJ.

as in... i'm a big macintosh advocate and live and breathe by macintosh over PC, but these two new products?.... pretty... dumb.

maybe i'll write about it more at some point when i'm not so brain-fried. at the moment i'm going to maybe play a bit of 8th style and then go to bed.

you know...I have to be honest, I wasn't sure about them either...I don't think its dumb per say...I just know they are trying to reach a different market of people. They are less expensive, and I know a few people who love Macs and can't afford them.

Case in point, a friend of mine has a G4 Cube that is on its last leg, and she can't afford a new G5, or a used G4 for that matter, but at $499, the new Mac is reachable. She already has a monitor and keyboard and mouse from the cube set up so all she needs is a cpu.

Anyway, that's my thought on it :)
