Everyone's been asking the question, but no one has the definitive
answer: can the Mac mini become a viable media center? We
did our part with this week's How-To, but some smart
peeps in the UK have put together the Mac Media Center Project, a consortium hell-bent on coming up with the ultimate
Mac mini media center solution. They already have links for audio and video connections at their site.
However, the group also plans to develop applications to tie it all together. They're looking at things like the
Xbox Media Center dashboards that have been going around in hacking circles for a few years as models.
