Hardware, Embedded Systems Now this is interesting news that hit my inbox at 2:22 AM (don't ask). It seems like the concept of selling Mac clones is more lucrative than many have anticipated, as I've just been informed via email that the German PearC has expanded its business into the BeNeLux (Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg) and France. Together with the news that Psystar emerged from chapter 11, it looks like the market for Mac clones is more lucrative than many of us had imagined.

It is good in many sense of the word - especially for those who want the mac experience without the mac compromises that Apple forces upon consumers with a limited range of hardware.

What compromises? the whining for the mythical xMac I see being pushed around by ego driven geeks who see 'towers' as some sort of monument to their ego; akin to the person who purchases a car with half the engine stick out of their bonnet or a noisy muffler to make a point of how 'grunty' their car is by drawing attention to it.

It reminds me of a friend who swore he 'needed' a tower; 3 years later and the most he did was upgrade the memory and hard disk - all of which you can do with an iMac. Games? get a console - if you're that into games and you're hitting 30, then god help you; you might as well be down at the skate park with a skate board trying to be 'cool' with the teenagers. It smacks of desperation.
