Issue 37: Inconsistent company name for Apple in smbios_patcher.c

Reported by MacMan, Sep 15, 2010

In the system defaults "SMbiosvendor" is in some places 
defined as "Apple Inc." and in others "Apple 
Computer, Inc.". The same is also true for 
"SMmanufacter" and "SMboardmanufacter". 

All references to "Apple Computer, Inc." should be changed 
to "Apple Inc." which is the correct name for Apple.

The code is correct. There are two different company names due to 
Apple changing it's name to accomodate things other than the iPhone. 
The earlier machines had the Apple Computer, Inc. name, while newer 
machines droped the Computer.

Apple changed the corporate name in January 2007 and every default 
is for a machine released after that date.So for consistency they 
should all refer to Apple, Inc.

I'll take a look at it when I get home.

Any idea when this will be corrected? I would prefer to not have to 
have my own branch.
