Hackintosh Videos: Wired or Tired?

Another one from Jason Snell, this time regarding Apple’s legal department sending a complaint to Wired regarding “some articles and videos related to hacking PCs to run Mac OS X”. Wired’s Brian Chen reported on Twitter today that Apple was suing Wired, but he later retracted that — it appears to be a cease-and-desist request.

What apparently raised Apple’s ire was a video by Chen containing explicit step-by-step instructions for installing Mac OS X 10.5 on an MSI Wind notebook. Wired has pulled the video, but Gizmodo is hosting a copy.
