    The mighty mouse name was just awarded to a different company, apple can't use it.

    Gruber's been wrong before, though. But he definitely has gotten a lot right before, as well. I'm excited.

    Dan Lyons chiming in can't be a horrible sign, either.

    Interesting, a multi-touch trackpad in addition to a multi-touch mouse. If true, looks like Apple is really pushing multi-touch on the pointing device.

    At least it's more evidence for an imminent Mac update...

    As BSN reported Apple bought RV770 chips from AMD. This means we will see Radeon HD4850 and maybe HD4870 graphics card and maybe a return to INTEL chipsets instead of nVidia ones.

    Mac mini server?

    That's intriguing. Yes, I know you can run server on a mini, but a bundled, lower price would be tasty. As would the likelihood it would be more consumer oriented.
