So.... with Mountain Lion, Mail no longer has RSS capability. I've just installed NewsBar Lite to give it a whirl - and was thinking of using it to monitor new posts to ehMac, but I don't see any RSS link on this site - or am I just missing something obvious?

UPDATE: Yeah, I missed something obvious. The URL bar in the browser, click on the RSS symbol at the right. Oops.

But if you run software like "AirServer" on the Mini (as I do on mine), you can have the Mini act like an airplay receiver and it can take feeds from iOS (and soon OSX) devices.

Means ziltch to me as I have all my media on a gigabit ethernet NAS server, there is nothing on an iOS device that I don't already have on the NAS and not accessible by all the Macs in the house.

I have all my media accessible to the Mac Mini HTPC as well, but when friends come over with Media on the iOS devices, or when I'm not close to the HTPC's keyboard/mouse and I want to play something from YouTube or some video linked in my Google Reader, AirServer is invaluable.

I have no friends with iOS devices who come over and if I want to view anything on YouTube I just use one of my Macs and I don't use Google Reader so AirPlay still means ziltch to me. Try as you might to convince me otherwise AirPlay/Server adds no value for me at all... no one uses every feature in any given OS and this one is no exception.

It may be great/invaluable for you and millions of others, I am simply stating my situation and why it has no value for me...

To each their own.

AirPlay is hit and miss so far from developers. Some macs are supported others aren't. I'd like AirPlay but if it is not supported by all macs I would consider it a fail.

Like airdrop, shouldn't have to enable it through terminal if your Mac isn't supported.
