Apple sends takedown notice to popular iPad, iPhone inventory-tracking website

Apple is not happy with Apple-tracker.com, a website that allows you to find iPad and iPhone inventory at local Apple retail stores, and is forcing the service to shut down. According to a note on Apple-tracker.com, Apple sent a DMCA takedown notice claiming the site "scrapes and collects data from apple.com in violation of the apple.com Internet Service Terms of Use."

Site owner Mordy says on the website that he is done. "I'm not really interested in picking a fight with Apple so... I guess it time to just say good bye," he writes. The tracker is already offline and will remain offline indefinitely. Mordy posted the notice from Apple so you can read the full text of the DMCA takedown on the Apple-Tracker.com website.
