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.

If this is exactly like taking the Nike logo off a pair of shoes so a pair of converse can be sold with it; why did the vendor put the iron on logos on store shelves for any of the public to buy?

I'd say it's more like Gap selling geans with Ykk zippers. Someone else comes along and buy Ykk zippers off the shelf to put in there own geans. If Gap owned Ykk, it to would have to choice of selling zippers separately on store shelves or only to owners of Gap branded pants.

That would be like making a hackintosh for your own use. But Nike will not be happy if you then sell your Nike logo'd converse as Nikes.

But Psystar is not selling their clones as "Mac's". They're selling them as PC's with OSX on them. So to use the shoe analogy, it would be you selling Converse shoes with Nike symbols but calling them 'Converse shoes with Nike symbols'
