Some folks will go to great lengths to get tech to work just the way they want it to. So it was with CNET Editor at Large Ian Sherr, who awhile back not only built his own computer but also did the coding needed to get MacOS working on it. Voila!.
But that machine’s days are numbered, thanks to Apple’s recent decision to start using chips of its own making in its computers, rather than those from Intel that it had been using for years. An era is coming to an end. With that in mind, Sherr — who’s not alone in his Hackintosh endeavors — is getting out his tinkering supplies one more time.
You can read about that DIY project below. It’s just one of the in-depth features and thought-provoking commentaries that appeared on CNET this week. So here you go. These are the stories you don’t want to miss:
