Apple The website of a Miami-based networking and security solutions reseller became inaccessible Monday, shortly after the company began advertising an unauthorized Mac clone for a fraction of the cost of Apple's cheapest system. Dubbed OpenMac, the USD 400 offering from Psystar Corporation is described as 'a low-cost high-performance computing platform' based on the ongoing OSX86Project - a hacker-based initiative aimed at maintaining a version of the Mac OS X operating system for everyday PCs. The website is back online now, and the machine has been renamed to Open Computer. Update: Psystar says they will continue to sell the Open Computer system, despite the fact that it appears to violate Apple's EULA. "We're not breaking any laws," they insisted.

Many years ago, i had a piece of software for the Amiga... It came in a cardboard box and stated on the back that there were terms and conditions inside.
Inside, was a paper bag holding the floppy disks with the terms printed on it. By opening the bag to access the floppies you were accepting the terms. If you reject the terms, you were guaranteed a refund providing the bag hadn't been opened.
It would probably have been better if the text were printed on the back of the box, but it was a large block of text that would have made the packaging quite ugly.
