Man that's weak. I hope Apple's Lawyers descend out of black helicopters, the next day they find Starbrite's HQ a smoldering cement slab. It's not THAT flattering, more like annoying, that the peecee world is so devoid of creative thought all they can do is copy Apple at every turn... though it's not surprising, most all peecee lusers are devoid of brains.

The pBop (aka iPod ripoff) is no long online at StarBrite's website. (http://www.starbriteltd.com/) All Startbrite has up now is contact info. Hehe, looks like Apple has already struck!

From what I have read over the last few days ( slashdot.org) it doesnt sound like Apple has actually done that much since I gather Apple's patent only covers the actual design of the iPod and not the software. The bPod is a bit of software on an HP PC although still a cheap ripoff!
I read that the bPod website got spammed badly so they shut down
