Apple acquires Legbacore — in the news again!

Back in November, Apple hired Legbacore’s hardware/firmware experts to help secure Apple hardware.

Ok, that was months ago. But for the last week, the above URL re-appeared on this blog’s stats as the most visited URL. Then, a few days later, there’s now a slew of stories on this, like it just happened today. Today, this is the top store on Google News for UEFI. Strange, how tech news works.

I am eagerly awaiting to see the results of their work, I hope future macs have a “Legbacore”-ready logo on it, or something so I know it’s better than the older hardware. 🙂
