Apex Player Banned From eBay
The controversial Apex AD600-A has been banned from sale at eBay because it, "offers a product or contains material which violates their copyright, trademark, or other rights." The Apex player (our review of which can be seen here) has been seen as notorious from the day it was released due to a hidden menu allowing users to disable region locking, Macrovision and CSS.
Last week it was reported that new versions of the Sampo firmware have had the region selection facility removed, and it is expected the Apex will shortly follow suit. Indeed there are already reports that new machines do not have the aforementioned hidden menu.
