;\) However, don't feel jealous right now, since we're about to start re-roofing an Eichler (flat roof)... It was all planned before the market crashed on all of us recently. Unfortunately, this is something we need since the roof leaks. So appropriate since it's been a rainy Hallowween day. Ugh. And then we found out our radiant floor heating in the kitchen is leaking, causing the wood floors to start warping. Double ugh.

On the bright side, we were featured in a magazine recently. You can even catch a glimpse of one of my Von Schweikert VR1's. The Axioms are in the media room.

Also, looks like the Macbooks can support at least 6GB.

An Eichler. Very nice. I'm more envious of that than a new macbook pro. That is a gorgeous home.

Thanks!

I do have to admit, I'm tempted to be in the market for a new Mac. My parents need a new computer so I want "donate" my mac mini and upgrade that. Was trying to decide on the Macbook or go all out for the 24" iMac. But I'm waiting to see if there's any iMac or Mac Mini refreshes soon. Haven't heard though.

I've heard nothing about iMac or Mini refreshes. There were some rumors that Apple will deep six the Minis, but as far as I can tell those are pure speculation.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Yes, it's definitely speculation. However, if you think about the new display w/ the magsafe connector and iSight camera, you can assume that they could easily refresh the Mini to work w/ that display and minimize connections. At that point, it also becomes close to the AppleTV.

Speaking of AppleTV, I just hacked it w/ Boxee. Now it can run XMBC and Hulu. It even has connections to run CBS's shows, including REALLY old shows, like Beauty and the Beast w/ Ron Pearlman, and Comedy Central. VERY well done, I've even run it on my Mac. Easy hack, the hardest part is finding a USB stick that's bootable.
