Why I pre-ordered the new Apple TV

Why I pre-ordered the new Apple TV

Let me just get this out of the way now: I don’t like the new Apple TV. I don’t like that it doesn’t feature on-board storage. I don’t like that I can’t buy songs on it.

As a long-time Apple customer, I have everything from an iMac to an iPhone to an Apple TV running in my house. But as Apple continues to call the Apple TV a "hobby," I'm left wondering if it's really true.

Mac mini 2010 review

Mac mini 2010 review

Apple's Mac mini was always the compact computer with a few frustrations. Perfectly scaled for doing duty as your HTPC, the absence of a native HDMI port meant hooking the Mac mini up in your living room was never quite as easy as we'd like to expect from Apple. Now, with a slick unibody refresh, more media-friendly specs and a reworked I/O selection, the new Mac mini looks set to take on SFF PCs for the home entertainment crown. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

New Mac mini gets teardown treatment

New Mac mini gets teardown treatment

Apple's newest Mac mini has suffered the same undignified fate of all fresh Apple products, and gone under the screwdriver in an iFixit teardown.  Notably including an HDMI port for the first time, the new Mac mini is another masterpiece of packaging from Cupertino's designers, from its twist-off easy access to the two RAM slots, to the way all the custom components are carefully sandwiched in.
