  • Psystar and Apple Going back to Court


    Well it looks like the Psystar Apple out of court settlement plans didn't quite work out. After the original trade of lawsuits back and forth between Apple and after the original suit against the mac-clone manufacturer the two companies said that they were going to attempt to work out and settle their difference out of court through Alternative Dispute Resolution.

    This didn't work out and now they are headed back to court. "The Parties do not believe that this type of case can be handled on an expedited basis with streamlined procedures," is a quote from the filling. It is possible that the Alternative Disputer Resolution was never intended to work out in the first place. Back in October the Psystar lawyer Colby Springer hinted that the Aletnative Dispute Resolution was just a mandatory process and that no peaceful solution to the lawsuit was at hand.

    We recently covered the newest Psystar computer features that include lots of choices between powerful NVIDIA graphics and Blueray drives. IF you want one you could be running out of time since Apple is definitely trying to take Psystar out of business.

      Looking at it from afar... I believe PsyStar should win this battle under terms of antitrust, which is what they filed for. I believe the issue here is that you are not entitles to install OSX onto a non-Mac system under the EULA. Rules like this are ridiculous. Let me install it on my toaster if I want to! My FEAR, however, is that Apple will have MUCH MUCH better lawyers and will have to be doing something utterly and blatantly wrong for them to lose the fight.

      Well, it is just like building a PC... just need to put a little bit of research into making sure things will work with OSX (and there is a ton of material online for this all over). A good site to buy product is NewEgg.com

      Basically you will need:

      Case
      Power supply
      Motherboard
      Processor
      RAM
      Hard Drive
      Optical Drive
      + Any other fancy deal you need/want to have in it

      Really all this company is selling is a custom built PC with OSX loaded on it...

      Yeah this is just stupid. Apple is trying to monopolize everything they make. where is the freedom? Where is the chance of competition? Its like Apple gets all butt-hurt whenever someone else has a better idea then them. Could you imagine what that would be like if MICROSOFT did this kind of crap and monopolized the PC world? If you agree just hit the <img src="http://www.modmyi.com/forums/images/mobile/buttons/post_thanks.gif"> button

      What? Hit the Thanks button just because I might agree?!

      Come on, folks -- the standards for begging for unwarranted thanks to satisfy one's self-esteem have really gone down here lately...

      cricketlang - what are you talking about?? Microsoft already has a vast majority in the computer market - it was recently a huge deal that Apple even hit double digit market share...

      And yes, the begging for thanks is seriously ridiculous - for christ's' sake, it's not like you get paid royalties or something, it just adds a number under your postcount!

      Five thanks for my post?!

      Talk about irony...

      Bastards.

      And Tweetix -- now you're just being a smart-*****...

      Heheh -- my nefarious, yet somehow sneakily underhanded and redundantly-described plan for garnering thanks by making cricketlang look like a tool is somehow working! Muahahahahahahaha...

      Ouch -- I just chewed off part of my tongue...

      yes please try that... it wont work because unlike windows which is written to work with all types of hardware configs the mac os is only written to work with the hardware that apple makes

      so you my friend are an epic fail

      Yep, and that's exactly why I'm using OS X 10.5.5 on my home PC right now.
