This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: The M2 Pro-powered Mac mini is a dream machine for creative types, according to our reviewer D. Griffin Jones. He joins us to sing the praises of this pint-size powerhouse. (It’s quite an upgrade from the 2015 MacBook Pro he used before.)
Also on The CultCast:
- It’s just two months until we’ll see Apple’s mixed-reality headset. We can’t help thinking this pricey “star product” is gonna flop hard, even as it points the way toward the future.
- A free book coming next week will reveal Steve Jobs “in his own words.”
- Will the next version of watchOS really bring big changes?
- Erfon knows where you can find a steady supply of genuine Apple accessories at cut-rate prices.
