Is MacMinute Living In the Past?
This popped up today on MacMinute’s RSS feed:
Newer Technology (NewerTech) today announced that it is shipping the NewerTech USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter…
Uhhh, “today announced…”? I’m not sure what the MacMinute crew have been smoking, but I bought one of these for work more than a month (maybe even two) ago for 20 bucks—a price even lower than this supposed “introductory” price of 25 bucks.
MacMinute also seems to think that hard drive enclosures—while admittedly are sometimes a PITA to crack open and swap a drive—are expensive items. Have they ever priced external enclosures? They can be found for less than the cost of NewerTech’s adapter.
I’m frankly a little stunned to see MacMinute make such a gaffe. The site’s always been on of my favorite for watching Apple-related headlines.
