    I really wish Apple would call eBay and let them leave that up, so Apple Legal could actually make an attempt to get a winning bid.

    What better way to prove somebody is pirating a product, than to get a pirated copy sent to your lawyers office and/or a law enforcement office.

    If you are selling any pirated Apple software, sending a copy to Apple Computer c/o Steve Jobs -- is a really bad idea. :p

    Yeah...agreed. :(

    Aside: that case...I can't decide if it's ugly or pretty. Part of me thinks it looks like a little refrigerator! :eek: :eek:

    Oh I know very well what all has been going on, I've been following it all very closely - just found this latest item and thought I'd post it, that's all. :cool:

    Awesome, I love it! Yeah, that would be great. Well, this is only going to be the start of such incidents. As I said in the other Main Page thread, I sure hope Apple knows what it's getting itself into with this movie to Intel. Reagrdless, I'm excited to follow along as things unravel - er, develop. ;) :cool:

    If that really includes a copy of OS X for Intel, that I wouldn't expect it to stay up for long.

    Still like the case though, would make a good home theatre component.

    Anyone know what type of case that is? Haven't seen one like it before...

    How has this thing lasted for 5 days? The auction is almost over! :eek:

    Someone should point that out to Apple and then they could do what they want with either the auction or the user windows2003r2.

    Same place you send reports of any other eBay items like pirated versions of FCP etc.

    One would think that by now, with the auction being up for 5 days, that Apple Legal is well aware of this item. Perhaps this is a "publicity stunt" of sorts and Apple is the one who actually started the auction in the first place! :eek: ;)

    Whoa, thought you were vniow for a second there... this has happened to me a couple times now... ;)

    I would send in a report, but as I said, I'm sure Apple is well aware of this auction by now...

    I was going to ask that myself. I really like the case design. If it has the right features and is easy to work with I might use it for my next build, provided I can find out what model case it is. Anyone?

    The case is ugly, very PC like. Funny that it mentions being faster that a G4. Think that I would prefer a G5. Would wonder just how well it would operate.

    I to like the look/design of the case. It would be a bit more believable in my view if the pic was not some website/company image.

    I don't know, I've seen much worse. I note though he actually has five of the little buggers up for grabs...

    Thanks, I didn't think to check the image source. Seems to be a pretty nice case definitely an option for my next build, I like Antec. If I go for the smooth and simple look I may get this one. It may not be a PM G5 case, but this case is about as unassuming as PC cases get. My next machine will be a real @$$-beater so part of me is tempted get something gaudy with windows and lights, etc... just to satisfy the 1337 gamer in me. :D

    Oh, I know it's not a tricky thing to do. I'm just amazed at the cheekiness some people have... ;)

    Excellent, thanks! Reading through the specs, it seems like one heavy duty case. No power supply included though...

    Only 30 minutes left to buy it, hurry up people! :p ;)

    People will sell anything on eBay for a buck... I wonder how long before we see some of Princess Diana's fillings for sale :mad:

    Oh well, Apple will have a field day with this! And eBay will cancel his account for selling copyright software.
