This is a funny thread. :P

My laptop has an Apple sticker on it, I even sent it in for a hardware repair to HP once with Snow Leopard installed on a dual boot. I still chuckle at what the workers must have thought. I didn't get arrested or anything for that though.

I think that part of the EULA is basically just to scare people from putting OSX on their Windows laptop and going to the Apple store to mess around with people.
Like what they did here:

Have you heard of anyone ever getting arrested or in trouble for jailbreaking their iDevices? If they crack down on that, they'll crack down on OSX86/Hackintoshers I think. I doubt both of those will ever happen though.

Cheers,
Proxin

Nah, unfortunately your argument is as valid as batman riding a superman in the halls of black mesa laboratories.

Who cares!!! really who cares about the EULA!! Ive got a G4, a G5, a macbook, a macbook pro, an iphone 3gs and Ive built myself a quad Hac and Im buying an iPad next week (ive also had a G3 and a Ti powerbook), I think Ive given apple enough cash (and will probably continue to do so) to be able to install OS X on one of my computers thats not a frigging apple branded one.

Take your moral high ground and cram it

EULA 10.5

This License allows you to install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled computer at a time. You agree not to install, use or run the Apple Software on any non-Apple-labeled computer, or to enable others to do so.

It means that apple sticker won't work with 10.6, it's compatible with 10.5 only.

Exactly!!! I was an apple fan before it was cool to have apple branded stuff, G3's, G4's, G5, wife has iMac, two Macbooks, iPad, iPhone....sorry not dropping 3 K for a 1.25 year old design desktop with crappy video card. If apple hates that then get somewhat competitive already....at least they are selling peripherals/software and really they don't seem to care about computers anymore.

Gee I sound a bit annoyed..... :(

Airport connects to your ISP when your modem is disconnected, turned off, and the Ethernet cables is unplugged from your router. Any ideas?


You do realize that Airport will make, or try to make, many connections to your ISP (I.P. address) even if your computer is disconnected from it? This is all normal behaviour.

My first computer was an Apple II+, and I taught myself how to program in assembly language (6502) on it, do I win? ;)

yes you do!! :)

Point being lots of people have supported them over the years and even turned people to the OS and now feel neglected because apple is all about iProducts. So I don't feel bad running OS X on one machine when I have many other apple computers here as well. I needed an upgrade and apple has nothing.
