Microsoft and Apple, already strange bedfellows if we're to believe Apple's seriously considering Bing over Google on future iPhones, are at it again, albeit indirectly. This time it's Microsoft's turn, as they present counterarguments in an Xbox 360 antitrust case.
Psystar, insane and actively prosecuted manufacturer of Mac clones and the occasional t-shirt, has filed an appeal of an injunction won by Apple exactly one month ago. This will, of course, achieve nothing, other than dragging out Psystar's ridiculous and unsupportable case for several more months, and sustaining its…
There are no details to be had yet, but apparently Psystar has filed paperwork with a San Francisco court revealing that the company has reached a "partial settlement" with Apple. More details should go public later today. [AppleInsider]
Psystar's recent legal woes keep proving the company's insanity. New documents show that these guys planned to sell at least 1.45 million Mac clones by 2011. How many did they actually sell in the past year? 768.
Psystar's Rebel EFI software promises that you can install OS X on any PC with a Core 2 Duo, Quad, i7 or Xeon Nehalem processor for $50, but we are discovering that you will probably end up getting screwed royally.
In case you missed it, Psystar's new downloadable software lets you install OS X on any PC with a Core 2 Duo, Quad, i7 or Xeon Nehalem processor. CrunchGear tried it on an HP TouchSmart, and even the touchscreen worked.
Not content with waging a crazy legal battle with Apple based on just selling hardware with Snow Leopard on it, Psystar is now selling software that lets you put OS X on any new PC.
Oh, thank god, we almost went a whole month without hearing from everyone's favorite EULA-flaunters: Psystar is back, again, and ready to fight, again, except this time with real-sounding lawyers, and without the outward appearance of insanity.
As part of their bankruptcy filings, Hackintosh maker Psystar declared that they owed Apple $75,000 for something or other.
A week after Psystar filed for Chapter 11, a company called Quo has stepped in hoping to offer unauthorized Mac machines online and in a retail store near Downtown LA.
Psystar—those guys who were pilfering software from the Hackintosh project to run Mac OS X in blah PC hardware—has filed for Chapter 11. Good riddance, is all I can say. Although this may be a shady legal strategy on their part.
Repeat after me: Psystar computers are not Mac OS X clones (to be Mac clones they need EFI firmware. They don't have it and that's why they are as crappy as any other Hackintosh computer.) That out of the way, according to a MacRumors reader, they are preparing a netbook with the hackintosh version of Mac OS X…
Someone got the first Open(3)—the kind-of-slimline Psystar Mac "clone"—and posted a lot of pics. Like its guts, it just looks like any other Hackintosh. You know, the ones you can make yourself.
