All the hysteria on Gizmodo and elsewhere over the Psystar saga had me all weirded out yesterday. I was ready to call them up to cancel my order, then take it to the credit card company if they balked.
But then I had a decent night’s sleep, and woke up to see this insightful comment on the Gizmodo thread from commenter AJcorex:
Meh, sounds like it’s just a few guys who’ve tried to make it in the world of sales with little success, found somethin that the world wants, and don’t know how to cope with the demand.
all these blunders could be due to the mass hysteria this has all caused.
I’m waitin it out to see what happens. But this is clearly not the work of any con artists, it’s just too full of doofy errors.
So, so very true. If they were con artists they would’ve,
- known that marketing a Mac-compatible clone would generate the attention — & scrutiny — they’re now receiving;
- made themselves conveniently unavailable for comment,
- been long gone with the money and credit card numbers after only a day or so of business.
So, I think I’ll give Psystar the benefit of the doubt and assume that the business is run by a handful of doofuses who are now struggling with the demand and attention they’ve generated, and the with some of the stupid but well-intentioned blunders they’ve made along the way.
Here’s hoping. Still!
