Apple Issues Takedown Notice to Website Helping People Find New Apple Gadgets

Over the years gadget fans have come to rely on third-party websites to help them find where the gadgets they're looking for from Apple are available and in stock. Typically, Apple doesn't really do anything to these websites because they're facilitating the purchase of Apple's own gadgets. However, Apple has now issued a DMCA takedown notice to website called Apple-tracker.com.

Apple says that it ordered the takedown because the site "scrapes and collects data from apple.com in violation of the apple.com Internet Service Terms of Use." The site owner has opted to shut the website down immediately stating, "I'm not really interested in picking a fight with apple so... I guess it time to just say goodbye."

The website is designed to allow customers to search for iPad and iPhone stock using their zip code with filters allowing users to pick a specific carrier and specific Apple device model.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
