Apple Issues Shutdown Notice To Website That Helps Find Apple Products

When Apple launches a new product, we know how difficult it can be to head on over to an Apple Store or other retailer to simply pick up whatever it is Apple has released. We know you’ve been told “we’re sold out,” and “we’re expecting a new shipment later this week,” one too many times. Today, Apple is making it harder to find their products in a store near you as they have issued a DMCA takedown notice for Apple tracking website Apple-tracker.com.

Apple-tracker.com was created by a web developer known only as “Mordy” as a way to help those who were looking to purchase an iPhone 5s and iPad Air, but didn’t want to pay ridiculous prices for them on eBay or stand in line for hours when both devices launched. The DMCA takedown notice from Apple claims the site “scapes and collects data from apple.com in violation of the apple.com Internet Service Terms of Use.” As a result, Mordy has proceeded to shut down the site as per Apple’s request saying ““I’m not really interested in picking a fight with apple so… I guess it time to just say goodbye.”

Now that Apple-tracker.com has been taken down, we guess you’ll just have to go back to calling every Apple Store in a 100-mile radius to see if and when they get a new shipment of iPhone 5s or iPad Airs.
