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.

//Won't happen. All they would do by public pronouncements is incite people to make hackintoshes.//

Er .. yah, incite maybe 200 people to make hackintoshes, in the grand scheme of things.

The number of folks that would go to the trouble of actually doing that is SO LOW compared to the number of folks how would buy a Mac, it's not even funny.

It's plainly obvious: Apple could care less about hackintoshes, because they know that the OVERWHELMING majority of computer users would rather buy a Mac than build one.

RE[3]: Oh no.. - think of the irony

Imagine if it happened though.

Apple's PR guy with a shocked look on his face; "uh.. how many people just publicly claimed love for there hackintosh and how many where new since our press release??"

And all those folk who where inspired to consider a hackintosh after it's public advertisement through Apple's press release; "Apple software sales have increased how much since they said that thing about not being allowed to do this??"

Irony in there own decree driving an increase in the item they decry while users rebel against it by bolstering Apple retail unit sales. hehe.. it's be all kinds of funny if it actually happened.
