Buck and run (with apologies to Liz Phair)
blogging: Made that last post in Starbucks then went to meet Red for some dinner up at the Palisade at Oxford and Adelaide which was nice and convenient for laundry and I had some intermittent connectivity issues at the Starbucks. Hotspotters can’t be choosers I suppose. A gizmodo kind of day…

Computer folks react to the Mac Mini
Geek gear: Industry reaction to the Mac Mini and the iPod Shuffle can be found here.

And one interesting spin is that it is almost a perfect fit for an in dash car computer. This would be one powerful mobile PC. And in a related note I was listening to the Daily Source Code for Dec 30th on the way over to Starbucks just now and wandering around Price Club earlier, and Curry was talking about his Audi A-8. It picks up feeds from the BBC traffic which interupts on a regular basis – on purpose – what’s on the radio to tell him traffic jams and such. But what it also does –Shwing here – is pulls in this info when the car is off in the garage etc., so when you turn it on, you can get the last dozen or so broadcasts and be up to speed, so to speak, quite quickly.

Your morning commute without having to listen to the traffic in the house at 15 and 45 past the hour or on the tens or whatever the local radio station has it set at. He hit it right on. Podcasting to a car. You listen to the traffic when you want as well as live. He went one step further, since his Audi has a computer already, why not have amp it up with a Mini Mac. Have it email info on trips and traffic conditions and such it recorded for you during the month and send it back home to you. For someone who travels a lot or has to bill for their travel time this could be quite clever.

Carpe Diem
