There was a time when Apple fanatics could bypass the crazy queues and get their hands on the latest Apple products: Apple-tracker.com.
Created by a web developer who goes by the alias Mordy, apple-tracker.com, as the name suggests, tracks the availability of Apple products and helped users to narrow their search using zip codes.
The site even offered a filter for the different Apple models and network carriers.
In a final update entitled "goodbye" on the website, Mordy said that he is "not really interested in picking a fight with Apple so..... I guess it's time to just say good bye."
Here is the full message from Mordy:
I've decided to turn off the site. I'm not doing this because I want to, but rather because I received a DMCA takedown notice (you can see the full text below) from Apple.
I'm not really interested in picking a fight with apple so..... I guess it's time to just say good bye.
Before I go though I just wanted to says thanks to all of you for the nice comments and emails that you've sent in the last few weeks.
It was fun while it lasted.
