PC Magazine debuts biweekly ‘Open Apple’ column penned by ThinkSecret staff

“Today marks the first installment of OpenApple, a column designed to help our readers bridge the shrinking gap between the Apple Macintosh and Windows PCs. The staff of ThinkSecret will be sharing news, insights, and analysis in a column running every other week,” PC Magazine reports.

Today’s column is about an expected Mac mini speed bump:

“Reliable insiders report that the Mac mini, Apple’s most affordable system, is primed for a small speed bump. Though the updated models will not feature the newest processors, Apple plans to phase out the lowest-end Core Solo model, and a faster Core Duo configuration will take over the top seat. Pricing appears unlikely to change significantly from the current models’ $599 and $799 tags,” ThinkSecret.com reports for PC Magazine.

MacDailyNews Take: This is excellent news! Microsoft’s Windows is slipping. Expect to see more of this sort of thing from “PC” media outlets as Apple Macintosh unit sales increase.

  1. “a column designed to help our readers bridge the shrinking gap between the Apple Macintosh and Windows PCs”

    err… isn’t it the fact that the gap between Macs and Windoze is getting WIDER that is the cause for such a need to cover Macs, to inform the PC masses??

  2. A column by ThinkIdiot?

    HOW MANY STORIES HAS THINK SECRET GOT RIGHT THIS YEAR: 0

    HOW MANY STORIES HAS THINK SECRET GOT WRONG THIS YEAR: 63

    and these idiots hire this guy? every peice of rubbish the site has posted has turned out wrong. and the last i checked, there is no team whatsoever, it is just one over egoistic college kid who has gone down the shitter in my book.

    Apple Insider has a much, much, much better track record than these idiots. in fact, they’ve predicted the entire mac intel line with accurate dates and case descriptions.

    HECK! EVEN MAC DAILY NEWS has a better track record than think idiot and they dont even write their own stories!

    my 2 cents

  3. MDN take, that’s a good point. I didn’t consider that. Apple advertises a lot in mac mags, but do they do the same in PC mags? I don’t think so. I’ve never understood why they don’t. Anyway, a regular column has more weight in a mag than an ad does anyway and the bi-weekly hit might just bump up the awareness of Apple’s computer products where it really counts.
