Do you know what the legal status of hackintosh is these days?

Well, there wouldn't be anything "legal" or "illegal" about it. At most, it may be a contract violation of the EULA. Apple's not going to let anyone in the USA sell hackintoshes (which has been done for a year or two in Germany because of different consumer laws). EULAs seem to be a gray area for consumers.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

It was a couple of weeks ago when I built my i7 hackintosh with the same cpu as the 27" iMac.

Isn't the i7 imac pretty new?

On the MacPro side, I'm finding Apple to be about 50% more expensive.

There are plenty of bugs with Apple's applications (Safari, etc.)

Speaking of which, have you seen how the new iOS jailbreak works?

Don't have to plug into a computer, just navigate to www.jailbreakme.com (external link) and it patches the phone's firmware over safari. It's actually a bit scary.

Yes, I did see that and as an iPhone owner that's fantastic...

The reality is that everyone sells buggy code... very few companies think about security first and security is always a relative term anyways as in a lot of situations functionality and security can be mutually exclusive. Even OpenBSD had an exploit... well okay they only had one.

Well, except it has exposed a serious security flaw in Safari.

I jailbroke mine while in a restaurant over lunch. But then I thought about how easy it must be to take control of someone's phone. I've since disabled javascript, but I have no idea if that's even how it works.

It takes advantage of a buffer overflow in the PDF capabilities, so nothing you can prevent yourself.

Only Apple can fix this and you can bet that they will, probably before the end of this week.

And with that, the tread has gone far enough off topic. (why am I not surprised?)
