    Default Bid website riping off the iPad

    So I was watching FX today and came accross this ad for those so called "bid" websites. (the kind where they want you to put money down so you can "win" a product that you'll end up paying for anyway) They ended up ripping off the iPad:

    You can see its clearly an ipad with the home button, background and bezzel. Just funky icons that are more like desktop icons from linux

    Pretty basic marketing technique...the company most likely couldn't get the licensing to use the iPad in their commercials, but because the design is such that everyone can identify with it, even without the EXACT mirror screen shot of it, they use a cheap knock off of some sort, or the body of the iPad with a photoshopped picture as the screen...they get the attention they wanted, and avoid the possible lawsuit for using a product without licensing permissions.
