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.

You are under the impression that Apple has a good name?


Apples name, branding, reputation in the mainstream (not the geek filled forums on the net) - the fact that you have a chip on your shoulder because its the 'cool' thing to hate Apple along with Microsoft doesn't change the fact that in the eyes of the vast majority of users - Apple is a cool, hip, and innovative company. What you or anyone else thinks is meaningless because perception is reality and the reality for the vast majority of people is Apple is a reliable brand that is cool, hip and on the cutting edge. Apple has to maintain that image to retain the market they have fought hard to create.
