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.

While far-fetched, if the terms of the purchase were such then there would have to be a very compelling reason to go ahead with the purchase; you cannot simply sign a contract and claim some percieved right to simply ignore it just because you feel your freedoms are being trampled on, man.


Blah blah blah.

The terms of purchase when buying Mac OS X are regular, normal unaltered terms of purchase, which apply to toothpaste, tires, and dildos. These terms of purchase go into effect the moment I hand over my money, and get the product.

The EULA is agreed upon *post-sale* and and as such, are by definition NOT terms of purchase. In many countries, imposing post-sale restrictions is illegal.
