Say it ain't so

AppleInsider "believes in all sincerity that the Mac mini is dead." I, for one, would be disappointed if this were true.
The Mac mini is exactly the kind of product Silicon Valley should never stop making. It's the perfect platform for tinkerers in the middle of the hottest growth area for tech, the home network. I keep mine under a 46-inch Sony HD-TV. Nothing else in Apple's product line would fit except Apple TV, which doesn't do enough to interest a guy like me. I want a new much faster Mac Mini, and would pay for it. It's the most cripped Mac I own, slow at everything. Yet its the workhorse of my home network.
