The modified mac mini that is designed for connecting to an HDTV has arrived. Rumors were flying almost a year ago about a product like the Apple TV coming out. I complained in a previous post about the idiocy of not releasing a revision of the Mac Mini that was designed for this exact purpose. I am still disappointed that this product does not have DVR / TiVo time-shifting functionality. In addition, it would be very nice to have Slingbox place-shifting functionality. If I didn’t already have a more functional XBOX w/XBMC, I would definitely buy this product. The only reason I would consider it is because of the box’s more powerful technical specs compared to the XBOX.
