One thing we're all pretty sure Steve Jobs has no intention of announcing tomorrow: an OS X netbook. But why do we need one when the Asus Eee PC 1000H can be purchased for $550 and hacked to run OS X.

  2. I wonder if anyone is gonna be able to hack the new Atom-based Dell Minis to run OSX. That would be totally awesome.

  3. @ #2:

    Things I didn’t know yesterday…

    Boy, some days I wish the internet had a rewind button. Yesterday was great.

  4. Why isn’t there a step by step guide HOW to hack it ? Everybody does this nowadays. Explain how they do things.
