Turtle tracking and protection organization now tracks Apple’s devices availability

SeaTurtle.org is known for its work on protecting sea turtles around the world. Now it has another job: to track the availability of Apple devices, particularly iPad Mini. The turtle protection organization uses iDevice Availability Notifier on its website to show a list of all Apple stores by state and which model of iPad Mini is available where. The same tracker can be used to check the availability of iPhone 5S and iPad Air as well.

The animal protection organization explains their new service by their attachment to Apple products. As great Apple fans, the organization’s staff uses iDevices to track turtles around the world, their website is using xServe to power it, and iMacs for the majority of programming. With the new iPad Mini tracker, they can find out where they can find their favorite Apple gadgets.

The question now is whether is Apple happy with the new service. Last time iPhone tracking site called iPhone Check tried to do the same, it was forced to close down. Apple used its Digital Millennium Copyright Act to prevent the proliferation of third-party unauthorized trackers of its products.

But, while iPhone Check collected information on the availability of Apple devices by scraping data from Apple.com, turtle protection organization uses different method. The information on their website comes from publicly accessible services on the internet. This at least gives them a fighting chance of keeping the Apple devices availability tracker on their website without causing Apple’s objection.
