Hands on: Connecting my mini to a TV

We bought our Olevia 47" on Black Friday, 2007. It wasn't a particularly well rated TV.

I've acquired a Mini, a couple of hardware items that I'm trying to decide between and several software solutions that I'm ...

Behold the 24th Anniversary Mac

Forget the TAM. I want this thing. David Clausen decided to celebrate the Mac's longevity by making something special. So, he gutted the case of a 512K Mac (the case is in great shape, by the way), then inserted the workings of a Mac mini and a grayscale monitor. Add to that a LS-120 floppy disk dri...
