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.

There is a VERY easy way for Apple to get rid of that threat.

Just have the OS name not contain any reference to their "Apple" brand.

Then cloners can only market their computers as "OS-x". But not as "Apple's OS-X", or Apple clone.

They could even put their OS business guys into a daughter company, and have them not make any advertisements.
The mother company, then sells Apple computers, as they did before.
