EFiX OS X hack dongle release date and price revealed

EFiX OS X hack dongle release date and price revealed

EFiX, who promise USB dongles that allow Apple's OS X software to be installed on normal PC hardware, have finally been discussing availability and pricing.  The device, which allows you to install OS X from a standard retail DVD, together with install any available patches and tweaks, will now be available in V1 or V2 versions.  The first batch, which somewhat confusingly will be V2 models, will cost around €80 ($125); that price, according to EFiX, is artificially inflated courtesy of the chips being basically a handmade series of 200, and future, mass-produced versions will be far cheaper.

EFix USA preps built-ready Hackintosh desktop

Speaking of hackintosh; some of you probably heard of EFix, an USB-based dongle that permits a retail DVD installation of OSX with compatible PC hardware. In fact, I’m running one on a PC system that has been though XP, Vista and now is EFix-powered MAC OSX. Does it work? Yes, buggier than previously Vista-powered system but it boots and craps out as usual. For those that aren’t preferred to go though lengthy time of putting together PC parts and pieces, but anxious to get a taste of Mac-clone, you’ll get your wishes; Efix USA (Not the official manufacturer of EFI-X) readies desktop featured an OCed Quad core processor will get officials as soon as early next week.

Update : EFI-X reseller EFIX USA said they will NOT be selling the system after all. EFI-X (the manufacturer of the USB dongle) has made it clear that they do not support system builder that uses EFI-X.

EFiX demonstrate dongle: Working OS X on generic hardware

Given the ongoing Psystar legal tousle, you can bet Apple's legal team are keenly watching EFiX's nifty USB dongle that allows you to run OS X on good old generic PC hardware.  However EFiX themselves seem to be having more fun demonstrating their setup than worrying about the potential legal ramifications; TeknoJunkie caught up with them this week and while EULA issues weren't on the agenda, the apparently slick way it allows OS X to run without in any way modifying the install certainly was.

Infiniti cars to be prefixed with “Q” and “QX” starting in the 2014 model year

With the launch of the 2014 model year, Nissan will begin prefixing Infiniti model cars with "Q" and crossovers and SUVs with "QX." This change will make it easier to identify what type of vehicle the model number applies to, a system far easier than the current barrage of letters that pepper Infiniti's various models. This comes a few weeks after Nissan announced that the 2014 Infiniti G37 will be unveiled in Detroit.
