Is the New Apple Clone Just a Hoax?

Even if it is, maybe it will spur new challenges to the Mac "monopoly."


Speculation is rife that Psystar won't be shipping non-Apple computers with the Mac operating system. But the mere prospect has unleashed debate about the idea that a challenge to Apple might succeed, at least legally, including an interesting analysis from Bryan Gardiner.

But my favorite has to be the interview that Chris Foresman scored with none other than Stephen Wozniak, Apple's cofounder. Woz agrees that a renegade like Psystar might stand up to Apple, but the giant can simply break the upstart with operating system updates. Still, he adds, "I need another tower and I like the price, so I may get one."
