iPod is to Music as Mac mini is to ________?

Think back to the first time you heard someone say, “Yeah, but that won’t work with my iPod” about an online music service, like Napster, or BuyMusic, or Rhapsody. Think about how important iPod compatibility is for a music store right now, with 10 million iPods out there in the world, and with the iPod commanding some 75 percent of market share.

Now, insert “Mac mini” for “iPod” and fast-forward yourself to May 2007.

Makes for a rather tantalising thought experiment, doesn’t it?
