I'm not too keen on that particular Apple logo. It reminds me of the COVID virus, with all the spikes coming out. Maybe I'm just too burned out from 2020....

At any rate, I'm quite happy with my new M1 Mac mini and my iPhone 12 mini. It's been a mini year!

I use the Home Pod as an alternative to a soundbar on my TV. Bought a new TV this year but I don't have room for the Sound Bar, but I wanted better sound. I might get another Homepod to get the Stareo, but so far so good.
I was a bit skeptical at first. But creating stereo pairs with two HomePods results in a dramatic improvement in sound.

In 2020, I got Airpods, an Apple TV 4K, and a Homepod. I've been loving all three.

My M1 Mini was my gift for xmas this year and since either the bluetooth sucks in the Mini (since 2018) or the :apple: mouse 2 ( :apple: keyboard is fine), I got a Logi mouse ball.

Love the M1 Mini and I can't wait to see where Apple goes with Apple Silicon.

Happy Christmas, Holiday's, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa everyone. 2021 can't suck as much as 2020!
