This is an interesting idea if you absolutely positively must have Continuity on an older Mac (before mid 2012). If you don't know what Continuity is you probably don't need it. Be sure to check the developer's web site for further information and the chart of compatible Macs as some hardware modification may be required. I would add to the developers's cautions, be sure your system is thoroughly backed up before trying the Activation Tool. A cloned backup is a more reliable source and more efficient than Time Machine if something goes wrong and you need to restore your system.

I would not venture to say if people do not know what Continuity means, they do not need it. If they do not have at least Mavericks and iOS 7.x, they cannot know what this means, which is not synonymous with they do not need it. Not everyone can afford last minute, expensive devices, but they would be glad if they could.
