Hackers Dissect Apple TV to Create the Cheapest Mac Ever
April 6th, 2007
Just two weeks after Apple released its streaming media box to the public, hackers successfully installed OS X, Apple's desktop operating system, on the $300 device, making it the cheapest PC Cupertino has ever sold.

Without video acceleration, games can't floor the graphic chip's throttle. There's no audio or ethernet support either, making the box useless ...

While Jaya Bachchan has never really spoken about Rekha the latter has often gushed about her didibhai, as she refers to Jaya. On the same topic, don’t know whether it’s the double standards or plain appreciation for the people involved – till date neither the public ...
