Ebuyer has again been caught stealing content from rival websites. Once again, the site didn't even bother with a traditional cut and paste but left content to be hosted by the website it was stealing from. We were contacted by a couple of Reg readers who noticed spooky similarities between several Ebuyer pages and those on …
They can't design there own deals either, just steal those also.
Rubbish company bleeding money,
Good publicity for morecomputers.com !
Quite blatant plagiarism by ebuyer, but good publicity / free advertising for morecomputers.com. I didn't even have them bookmarked previously, with ebuyer being my first port of call for hardware purchases - I'll now be looking at morecomputers as well !
Yeah, but which one loads faster?!
At least the Ebuyer page loads 10 times faster than the one from morecomputers. Must be all the extra traffics from El Reg, I reckon ...
Come on Ebuyer, you're not even trying.
On a more design related note I'm not sure which came first, Ebuyer or Aria but the designs of their websites are very similar. Check them out:
Aria: aria.co.uk, Ebuyer: ebuyer.com
£36 less? No
£36 pound less? Dont they mean around £12 less? Well according to the screenies anyway.
... to goatse. Problem solved!
Not surprised ...
Given that ebuyer recently canned (nearly) all of their development staff, I'm not surprised by this in the slightest. Smacks of desperation, if anything ...
Another site to buy hardware from
Thank you ebuyer for showing somewhere else that I can save money from.
and I was thinking of buying a new printer soon.. hmmmm £36 cheaper right?? Wonder what else is cheaper...
MoreComputers.com back to normal
Just a quick note to say the MoreComputers.com site did slowdown yesterday due to all the hits from The Register, sorry about that. Glad to say everything was back to normal by the afternoon.
It's not exactly a ripped off novel is it!! Who cares, if the description fits then I don't care where is comes from. And the mistake gave a link to mores website. I use both suppliers and find them both excellent. Must agree with other comment ... more speed up your site please.
