ANF gets tough

So it looks like Abercrombie & Fitch are getting tough on counterfeiters. Well according to this report anyway.
One reason for Abercrombie’s move was to reduce the number of poor-quality copies being sold overseas so consumers won’t get a negative impression before the real thing arrives.

Well in which case they could do worse than look at eBay which consistently has ‘Brand New’ A&F clothes in bags! Only problem is of course Abercrombie clothes don’t come packaged in bags. There are so many counterfeit items on eBay I’m suprised they can still allow it without being forced into some sort of legal requirement to guarantee authenticity before selling.
You only need to look at the number of items allegedly from UK but shipping from Hong Kong. If eBay really was against counterfeit goods they would prevent this practise immediately. But of course they make money on every transaction be it listing, transaction or payment. It’s hardly in their interest to prevent it now is it…


Okay so I now am the proud owner of a brand new MacBook 13″ 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo with the regular 60Gb hard drive and 512Mb RAM. More here.

Now don’t get me wrong it was really nice of the boys to go to the Apple Store when they where in the US and buy it for me however, and heres the crunch. Two of them who aren’t even Mac fans (well they are now obviously) bought MacBooks while there and there were two slightly higher spec ones instore. Rather than asking me if I wanted one – they bought the better ones for themselves grrr!

Still I’ve got my memory on order and I’m converting my G4 Cube into a file server so my 60Gb should be fine for now.

I haven’t had much of a chance to play yet sadly been busy with work. Looking forward to playing at the weekend though.
