Do you have a hankering to get into the not-so-lucrative and oh-so-litigious world of Mac clones, but don't want to go through the effort of naming your company, building a website, or building a list of editors and reporters to pester? Well, now there's a solution!
Yes, for the low, low price of just $50,000 you can buy Open Tech, the super-shady, Mac not-quite-clone vendor that never actually shipped anything.
You may remember Open Tech, which promised to sell computers that used PC hardware, ran PC software, but were also capable of being hacked to run MacOS (in other words, a regular PC.)
It seems that the nontreprenours behind Open Tech just weren't cut out for the business of not making PCs and they're now looking to unload the company to the tune of fifty grand.
Among the assets you would acquire: the company web site (currently hosted on freewebs), its model "blueprints", press contacts and two PCs.
A more cynical person would suggest that they never really planned to do anything other than hype their non-company and sell it for a quick buck, but we'll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that they just want to drop the legal liability on some unsuspecting sap.
A nice bonus: buy now and you can possibly earn a spot in history as the first ever corporate acquisition completed via PayPal.
