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.

Playing with fire

Those guys (both the company and the consumers) are playing with fire. Apple may not even try suing them, but they may push a technical update that will break OS X on non-Apple hardware. There's gotta be a way to do so that we're not aware yet. I could imagine suddenly thousands of Hackintoshes stopping working, everybody complaining and PearC, Psystar disappearing...Apple certainly had anticipated that.
