This is an interesting article:

http://www.cultofmac.com/psystar-cocaine-car-crashes-and-the-companys-chances-of-beating-apple-pretty-good/20970

It would seem that they are pushing arguments that are akin to ITTO'ss and VS's ... and that if successful, they could tip up the software apple cart (no pun intended) for virtually entire industry.

Perhaps they should change their corporate name to "David."

"The case hinges on the legality of EULAs ó shrinkwrap licenses ó that say you donít own the software you buy, you license it."

Saw a headline somewhere just 2 weeks ago that said a judge threw out the EULA licensing and said you own the software. I only read the headline, so I don't know what case it was, etc.  (You should tell me in advance about your intended post topics, perk. 2 weeks notice, minimum.)

It will be interesting.  But I'd like to meet the author in an alley for dragging the drug problem of a family member into this.  That's irrelevant and disgraceful, but it's just a Mac Cult after all  ROFLMAO
