Last night on the Talkcast
, we talked about the big news last week that Psystar seemed to be down for the count
, and the consensus was that we'd heard the last of them. But not so fast: their lawyer now says that they're not calling it quits just yet
. The company that has gotten pummeled by Apple
for selling Mac clones apparently "does not intend to shut down permanently," according to K. A. D. Camera of legal firm Camera & Sibley. According to him, they're still working on selling their Rebel EFI product
(also currently entangled in legal problems), and they're planning on pushing forward on their antitrust case against Apple
(which has already been thrown out once). We're not sure where they'll get the money for all of this legal action after already being ordered to give a couple million dollars to Apple, but maybe those 768 computers they sold
made more than we thought.
There is one bright point in all of this: while Rebel EFI is still listed as out of stock on their website, they are
selling official Psystar t-shirts for $15 which they say will also include a Rebel EFI authorization code later on
and now those appear to be gone too! I don't know about you (and I don't really want to give these guys any credit card information), but one of those shirts would look great sitting under my tree later this week. If this whole installing-OS X-on-unauthorized-hardware-in-violation-of-Apple's-EULA thing doesn't work out for Psystar, maybe they can have a second life as a merch vendor.
