It looks like Apple is pretty serious about keeping Hackintoshes off of the street (ever heard of Psystar?).  According to his Twitter post, Wired reporter Brian X. Chen is revealing that Wired is getting sued by Cupertino  for releasing a video on how to make a Hackintosh.  That is a pretty bold move on Apple’s part considering there are literally hundreds of sets of instructions out there on how to do this.   Lifehacker alone seems to post a new one every week.

The original Post is now currently down but Gizmodo currently is hosting a copy of it.  What do you think about this turn of events?

UPDATE: he’s released another Twit (the twit) saying that it wasn’t a suing, perhaps Apple just asked nicely?
