Hardware, Embedded Systems Just when you thought you saw it all. So, we all know about Psystar, the two lawsuits between them and Apple, and all the other stuff that's been regurgitated about ten million times on OSNews alone. Well, that little company has taken its business to the next level - by announcing an OEM licensing program.

Those, my friend, are SOFTWARE features, provided by OpenFirmware (PowerPC) or EFI (Intel). OF and EFI are both not Apple technologies, and are in fact used by other companies too; OF, for instance, is on my Ultra 5, and provides the same features.

It has nothing to do with the hardware or integration. It's a simple case of using something else than a BIOS. The features you mention are part of the firmware, not the hardware.

EDIT: except the case tyhing, obviously.
