Well, that was quick. Apple has
dropped the Mac Mini offer that would have allowed consumers to try the Mac Mini for 30 days, and send it back if they didn’t like it.

Rumors are flying fast about the event that Apple is holding at Moscone Center in California on September 7th. The latest guess is that

Whether that’s true or not…. well, we’ll find out soon enough.

Things have gone absolutely nuts.
