Default A look inside(physically) EFI-X Modules [tom's]

Title says it all.

Quote:
This happens to be the situation with a little known company called Art Studios Entertainment Media, or ASEM for short. The company is most famous for making a module called the EFI-X, which it claims to allow simplistic booting and running of Apple's Mac OS X. And that, it really did. Several media outlets, including us, last year received a batch of EFI-X modules and it certainly did what it claimed to be able to do.

Yes, I know that it is on tom's. Read it anyway.

Sounds like another asshole company to me. When Id released the old games using dosbox and forgot the GPL stuff, at least they ponied up and gave it out!

That is seriously disgusting. I hope their sales drop to zero once people starting reading this.

For $250 a pop, I never really thought the price was justified just to run a mac on a pc since there are "other" solutions.

I'm really glad I never fell for this. I was planning on using one but the price tag was too high...

I had a thread back a month or two ago saying I was going to buy one. That could be it...
