Legal We've got some progress in the other legal case Apple is involved in. The California case, Apple vs. Psystar, is more or less a done deal, but the Florida case, Psystar vs. Apple, is only just beginning. As it promised it would do, Apple has now asked the court in California to either dismiss the Florida case, or transfer it to California. Apple is also asking for a permanent injuction against Psystar. Through this motion, we also gain some juicy insight into Psystar's sales projections - and more interestingly, how many machines the clone maker actually sold.

>"So, this is the company that Apple is so afraid of. A company that sold only 768 machines in over a year. In roughly the same timespan (Apple's 2009 fiscal year which ended September 30) Apple sold 768 machines every 40 minutes. Dangerous, those clone makers. They are destroying Apple!"

If not for that last paragraph, I would have stated that this was a relatively even handed analysis of the situation.

You ruined it by editorializing what might have been your first actual news piece.

Anyways, in response... Apple was (rightfully mind you) afraid because a lack of response to Psyster's illegal behavior sets a precedent for other companies... including large ones (who COULD have actually sold more).
