PBS -- Bob Cringely thinks the Mac Mini looks good in sitting rooms next to televisions and if his musings are correct, that's exactly the location deigned by Apple and Sony. After all, the Mini is a basic media PC, making it the logical next step for Apple by extending iTunes to selling and distributing movies. It has no analog adapter but Apple offers one. You can also plug in an Apple DVD burner. The Mini's DVI connector can plug into HDTVs from Sony. What I need to do this summer is plumb broadband directly into the phone jack behind the television so we're configured for the arrival of iFlix.
