There is something going on over in Russia that will give the Patron Saint of Apple some serious heart burn.


It seems that the Bulgarian cloning machine is back in business and with a vengeance.


They have taken aim once again at the Mac and are putting out a Mac Clone that is so good it will even fool the apple servers into sending auto updates (although lately that is not a good thing).

Russians Cloning Macs again


Historically the Soviet Union used a lot of Apple gear. Well, it was not badged with the Apple logo. It was cloned and manufactured in Bulgaria. In those days Apple could not complain because the only way Bulgaria was going to stop making the machines was if the USA started World War Three.


When the Berlin Wall fell so did the Bulgarian economy and its light manufacturing industry. The cloned Apple Macs disappeared.


However now it seems that RussianMac is releasing a Mac clone. According to its website, the PC will come with a full version of Mac OS X Leopard pre-installed and it is good enough to fool Apple into sending it automatic software updates.
