Mac OS X Getting Mac OS X up and running on a computer without an Apple label has always been a bit of a hassle. You needed customised Mac OS X disks, updates would ruin all your hard work, and there was lots of fiddling with EFI and the likes. Ever since the release of boot-132, this is no longer the case. Read on for how setting up a "Hack"intosh really is as easy as 1, 3, 2.

I don't know anyone who buy's Apple for the 'cool' factor;


I know A LOT of those. Then again, I frequent Amsterdam and that cesspool of a city is filled with people who would use such reasoning to buy products.

Well, that is pretty much a universal thing; people buying a Netbook because is 'cute', buying a Mac because it is 'cool', and iPod because 'its the in thing'. I find it funny in the case of the iPod the desire by some that they must have it hanging from their neck as if to say, "look at me, I have an iPod" (mine is in a plastic case and keep it in my pocket, and I use non-Apple ear phones).

Quite honestly, nothing says wanker more than a person who puts their ipod on display, wears their mobile phone clipped to their belt or walks around with a blue-tooth wireless widget in their ear as if to say, "I am so incredibly important I must be in contact at all hours of the day - bow down and worship my awesomeness".
