The conspiracy theorists are crying foul over Apple's alleged hacking of the few who have managed to turn their netbooks into a "Hackintosh."
Some surprised netbook lovers accused Apple of trying eliminate competition for its higher priced laptops or even setting the stage for its long anticipated netbook.
But unfortunately for the Apple conspiracy theorist out there there is little evidence that the netbook zapping was not simply an unanticipated side effect of the regularly released OSX updates.
And all is not lost for netbook users stuck in reloop purgatory. Clever geeks on the MyDellMini forum have already figured out a way around the issue that allows you to run the latest OSX with only the updates you need.
