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.

you are SIGNING a contract with the software company under what conditions the software is being licensed to you for!

Really? I dont see my signature anywhere on any contract or other legally binding document.
All I did was click a button. Clicking a button != signing a contract.
Just because Apple (and other software companies) lawyers wants you to think it is doesn't mean it is so.

Even if it was a contract it doesnt mean all the clauses are valid and legally binding.
