Here's your Mac mini media center

This is awesome. However, it's taken THIS LONG for it to happen. My El Gato device is now so obsolete it's silly. Mine didn't come with a remote, isn't this small, needs a power brick, and gets excessively hot. Never mind it won't really work right on an Intel Mac. I can't wait to get a new mini some day...

Tips on using Windows

I started using Apples back in 1977ish. I was six. Point is, I also started using PC's running MS-DOS when those became available. I remember snickering a bit at Windows 1.0. I remember trying out a different way to look things up on the internet called Mosaic.

And now you can run Windows and Mac OS on one machine. That machine just happens to be a Mac, which is pretty cool too...

Anyway, I wrote up a few tips for living in Windows. Next installment should be the security perspective. Because Mac users are kinda clueless when it comes to security ;)
