Mac clones a moving target

Well, it seems the whole mac clone story is shadierthan I tought.
The guardian tracked down Pystar’s movements, both on the web and on the map.
Yep, on the map. Not only their website appeared out of nowhere a couple of weeks ago, but their physical address is moving around too, seems they’re changin it every few days.
Maybe it’s to escape the wrath of netkas, who claims pystar stole his v8 efi emulator.

Scam or no scam? Well, they promised Ars they’ll send them a unit for review, so we just have to sit back and wait.

Buy an already-hacked mac clone

Posted in hardware with tags , , on 2008.04.15 by ipv5

There’s people buying apple hardware because it is quality stuff, people with a ton of hardware already around hacking macosx to run on their iron.

And then there’s people offering you a pre-hacked mac minitower for sale at 400 bucks, yep, that’s right. Those soon-to-be-sued-to-hell guys at psystar offer you a mac clone with osx already installed.

If you want it, do get it fast, this box is making the rounds on the net and I doubt it will be avaiable for long.
