There are so many reports of Apple’s Mac mini computer being installed in cars that we usually let them fly by our eyes with nary a notice. This one, however, found by the guys over at Foursprung caught our attention. The subject of the install was a 2006 Infiniti M45 Sport with a nav screen in the center console and another drop-down monitor in the ceiling. Both monitors can display the Mini’s video out, which is pretty trick, and the creator uses his own Bluetooth-enabled Palm Treo 650 as a remote with a program called Salling Clicker. The tiny Mac also has a built in airport card for wireless internet when parked within a network and the computer can also get online using the Treo 650’s built-in dial-up connection in a pinch. The best feature is that is a program called Rsync X allows the car to sync up its iTunes library at night in the garage with the one on the Powermac G5 in the house.
