Mac Mini 2018 - Too Little, Too Late?

By // 3 comments :
It's been four years since Apple updated the Mac Mini. (And six years since they released a Mac Mini worth purchasing.)

If rumors are to be believed, our long wait is almost over. Apple seems set to announce an updated Mac Mini, with "pro" specs, this fall. 

But is it simply too little, too late?

We finished our basement during 2016.

We recently added a HomePod to our iOS-connected home - replacing a SONOS Play:1.

I'm happy to report that migrating data from one Mac to another is not one of those complicated tasks.

It's been a long run here at AAAD. Six years!

And yes, we've been waiting for HomeKit to take over the world for the better part of a decade.

While things have been largely stagnant on THAT front, the rest of our tech world has changed dramatically.

Cord Cutters - The Apple TV is the Only Device You Need.

Last year, we made a pretty momentous decision - we dropped DirecTV.

I guess you could call us cord-cutters, but it really doesn't feel like that.

Frankly, it doesn't seem like we made any changes at all. Our AppleTV-only setup is slightly more convenient, and somewhat cheaper.
