Mac Mini in your MINI?

A Mac mini for your MINI? Apparently so. Me want.

heehee, i'm thinking about a carputer, probably involving that Mac and a touch screen...add a little custom code, hook the whole thing up to the audio system, and you've got yourself quite a toy; dvds and audio visualizations in the car, namely, but with a cellular internet connection the sky's the limit.

aren't cellular internet connections REALLY expensive... and REALLY slow? granted, it's been a couple years since i've used the web on my phone. mind-numbingly slow, it was. otherwise, yes, the idea of having itunes and the mac os available in my MINI is very, very tempting. i'd have to see an install done and how it's implemented, though, before i'd attempt. i'm not an experimenter in these sorts of things.

cellular internet has gotten pretty affordable (like 30 or 40 a month for something you can hook up to your laptop) but it isn't quite up to DSL speeds, yet. still, for those 'man, i wish i had access right now' moments, it'd be the bomb. i'll be happy to void my warranty (already have, i'm sure...) and go through the idea/totally-broken-car/fruition cycle first.
