‘Like no other’ knock-off Apple site surfaces online

Does this look familiar to anyone?

Note Apple.com’s current design preceded the site above.

Wow. And “Like no other” is their trademarked slogan, no less! Is this a joke?

  1. hahaha yeah this has been on Apple Insider for a day or two now and people have been teaing these guys apart. The site was taken down for a while last night but is ibviously back in all it’s ripped off glory.

  2. If they build computers as they build sites, �Oh my God!

    If you click on the “laptops” tab, you get Desktos. If you click on some of the tabs in the Desktop page, you get an error “File not found”.

    Yet, a copy of Apple.com site, except that Apple’s works just fine.

  3. Hmmm…..I must say I like the Grand Canyon Display. I saw something similar to the Cinerama Display at Siggraph. Nice. But I ain’t giving them my hard earned dime. Unreal anyone?

  4. sad…I don’t usually take potshots at the wintel camp, but in this case…it is unavoidable.

    sad, it would have been a nice machine on all accounts if they had actually designed it themselves…

    Did they just cut and paste the website?

    Sad

  5. At the top of the homepage, they have a disclaimer,

    “Mac users only: You may experience linking errors when using the main navegation bar above, with both the Internet Explorer and Safari Browsers. We are looking into the issue and correcting it as soon as the technical issues have been identified. PC�users are not affected by this.”

    Yeah, I think the issue is you didn’t follow web standards when designing your unoriginal site…

    “navegation” <snicker>

  6. This can’t be for real. When you call the toll free order #, you get forwarded like 3 times and end up with a generic voice mail system. Not to mention that many of the technologies they claim for their systems either don’t exist, or are totally wacked out. A 3.8GHz P4?? Yeah, only if you overclock the holy hell out of it. This site and company is either a parody or an elaborate hoax, one or the other…

  7. That Disclamer would better say:

    “Mac users only: Do not enter this site. It is not four you, Mac fan. Yes, there are some errors in the main navigation bar, but they are intentional so that you do not see our lies on benchmarks of the G5 or to asume the errors are caused by lack of standars”

  8. Hywel that Finder icon is actually a custom Virtual PC icon created by Hein Mevissen. It’s part of his “Application Icons” set.

    They’ve ripped two people at once with that graphic. Good times!

    PS- This new caching system SUCKS!!! It keeps alternating my user name in the name field. Please correct this as it is highly annoying. We’ve already had someone else accidently post with my user name in another thread…
