mini shuffle is starring Apple’s website and its commercials, while the iMac mini, which should be the revolution from Apple, only has a small corner. Maybe it’s not such a good idea to buy a Mac this year: what if the mini was just the final shout, and they were getting ready to jettison the Macintosh line by year’s end if the sales don’t become miraculous? Oh, don’t roll your eyes. It’s not like Steve Jobs isn’t capable of doing just that.
No, seriously, the lack of emphasis Apple puts on the iMac mini really bothers me.
P.S. They’re really cracking me up, the competitors proclaiming loud and proud that they can’t understand Apple reinvented the walkman again, and who’ll quietly release their own shuffle clones six months from now — only ugly and less practical than the iPod, with software that’ll be ugly and less practical than iTunes.
