An Apple A Day

Apple continues its trend of excellent industrial design and intelligent form factors. On the heels of the insanely successful iPod is the Mac mini. A pretty competent machine that measures in at a mere 6.5x6.5x2" and starts at $499 USD. This should be a great way for Apple to increase its market share and attract PC buyers who would be otherwise reluctant to shell out money on a G5 the first time out.

Next is the iPod shuffle, the first flash-memory 'Pod. Weighing in at under one ounce (0.78 oz) and with svelte 3.3x0.98x0.33" dimensions, it is the most portable of Apple's music players to date. There is no display, rather, a control pad one one side for playback and a slider on the other for power, shuffle, etc. Available in 512MB and 1GB versions at very attractive price points.

The only gripe I have with these, especially the iPods, is their stark white color. Is the iPod demographic that clean? I can't imagine how quickly they would get dirty with regular use. How about a dry carbon and matte titanium design? While I'm on the Apple tip, how badass are the new Cinema Displays? The thirty incher boasts over four million pixels -to put that into context, that's more pixels than five 15-inch LCDs combined.
