Apple’s bleh products..and a cool new Microsoft toy?!?


So Apple just came out with their new, Intel-based Mac Mini (ok for what it is, but pretty yawn-inducing), and the iPod Hifi (too expensive, kinda stupid) and the collective reaction could best be described as “meh.” Meanwhile, Microsoft (!) apparently has a handheld in the works that will run Windows XP Tablet and actually looks pretty damn cool. If I could somehow hornswoggle Counterstrike onto that thing, I’d be one happy fool. From the picture, it looks like it has a camera, and I’d bet serious money on Bluetooth and Wifi.

Apple, I hate to say this, but this little critter, if it does what I think it can, could very well replace my laptop at some point. That is, unless Apple throws down with a mobile beast of their own, which you’d assume the iPod will eventually become.
