The M1 MacMini uses about half the volume of the device compared to the Intel MacMini. Also not a lot of the thermal envelop.
Apple could put an M1 Max or more in the old design and still have design up their sleeve.
What is on earth was the mock-up artist thinking might need the device to be twice as high. No need to increase power supply or cooling capacity without some additional function in there. Afterburner or second SOC would seem to be the only options seeing they are saying non-3rd Party. But then you need lots of cooling say front to back if they are vertical fin to fit in the space.
If it is going to take even a half-length card as an option the doubling direction is still all wrong.
And it certainly couldn't run dual M1 Max, which is something that's coming. Whether it starts with the Mac Studio, or much later with the Mac Pro, remains to be seen.

so it is possible to to outdo either of them just by having an LCD to compete with them with a full power dock and 120hz and an attractive chassis.
An Apple chassis with the iMac's 5K 27" 60Hz LCD panel....without mini LED and without promotion, is already a steal at $999, the rumored price point.
More like the Mac Pro itself is coming in 2 models, a small and large. Mac Pro and Mac Pro Max.
This is what threw me in reading the article. If this Mac Studio is the rumored Mac Half Pro, something the size of 3 or 4 stacked Mac mini's or a PowerMac G4 Cube, or a 2013 Mac Pro, or a Mac IIci on its side, at some point it's really not based on the Mac mini's design anymore.Reportedly, the device will be mostly based on the Mac mini's design but will feature "much more powerful hardware."
If it is that much larger, there isn't going to be much similarity between a Mac mini and this box.
Then, how is it going to differ from the Mac mini that is rumored to have an M1 Pro and perhaps an M1 Max?
I think this gives a false perception. It isn't actually that iOS users spend more than Android users. It's that there are far fewer of these types of users on Android. The kind of user that actually uses their device the way people use iOS devices is much more rare in the Android ecosystem. The size of the Android market is over inflated by throwaway devices, devices that are only used for specific purposes, cheap work phones, etc. etc. etc.
The reality is that regardless of what "market share" says of iOS vs. Android...."user share" is much more accurately reflected by these kinds of statistics. Easily a 4 to 1 dominance of iPhone users who actually use the thing, vs. Android users who actually user theirs.

The Dutch authorities haven’t a clue about what they are doing and are totally unwilling to work with Apple to come up with a fair and equitable solution that doesn’t punish Apple for its success or impart risk on Apple’s customer base.The only card the Dutch authorities know how to play is the punishment card, whether it’s fair or not to apply it in this situation. At this point it’s in the Dutch authority's best interest to maintain their childish position because they’ve created a new and recurring source of revenue, which may have been the plan all along considering the unrealistic expectations they’ve levied on Apple and their unwillingness to consider the efficacy of what Apple has already proposed as a workaround.
