MacMerc points to a great feature on one of IBM’s countless web sites about using the Mac Mini as a high-end embedded development board. “It has a broader array of connectors, a faster processor, and support for a very large amount of memory. The development kit is fairly complete, with support for AppleScript, C, C++, Objective-C, Java?, Perl, Python, and Ruby programming out of the box or you can choose to use some third party Java tools such as Eclipse or Netbeans.”
Thomas Hawk is one of the first to take advantage of JupiterResearch’s decision to invite selected bloggers to read and post comments on their reports, and does a fantastic job with his work on How TiVo and Microsoft Ought Best to Fast Forward the DVR Revolution. This is something that benefits both the blogging community and Jupiter, which has been way ahead of the curve in terms of encouraging public dialog. If you’re interested in the media player landscape, Thomas’ comments are very worth reading.
