"Challenge", eh?

Yes, let's issue "challenges" about arbitrary mixes of functionality  
in a particularly-shaped black (or, in this case, white) box. Lets  
"challenge" someone to find something that isn't a Mac Mini that looks  
like (has the "form" of) a Mac Mini.

As first glance, this looks like precisely the kind of techno-macho- 
wank that Richard was talking about.

Running water and sewerage, people, then health care and education...  
and *then* perhaps we can worry about what shape the digital TV  
recorder is. ;)
