Working on a Hackintosh, Any Hints?

Hey faithful readers! Anyone out there ever work on putting OS X on non Apple hardware? More commonly referred to as a “hackintosh”, I’m looking at creating my own and I’m having a bear of a time. I did manage to find this and they’ve been very helpful. I guess I’m mostly looking for reasons to continue pushing this till it’s 100% working. It’s proving to be a major PITA even on pretty generic Intel hardware. I’m trying it on my girlfriend’s Acer laptop, hoping the lower requirements for OS X will help her enjoy this beautiful two+ year old machine a little longer. Any hints, tips, tricks, links are welcome. No OS bashing though!!! Telling me to give up and go buy a Mac Book is not helpful. Unless you’re willing to foot the $2,000 bill. Then go ahead, I take donations. 🙂

Its the Weekend, Gimme a Break!

Alright so maybe professionalism isn’t really working out here. I work weekends and between that and some epic Nerf gun battles I’m a pretty busy fella. I’m keeping up on things via Twitter and other tech blogs, but nothing supremely noteworthy has really come out. I did want to do a piece on the Acer Iconia Tab, but I think I’ll wait till I can get a hands on. With essentially the same hardware (including an identical Tegra 2 SOC) as the Xoom at only $450 it just might be the tablet to buy. If I have the time tomorrow, however, I think I’ll end up doing my first (ha) “My First ____” post. Since no one bothered to provide input via my polls, I guess I’ll make an executive decision. But you’ll still have to check in tomorrow to see what I pick! Ahh! A cliffhanger ending!
You stay classy, World Wide W….
