WARNING: Blatant Rip Off of XScaleCtrl
There is a blatant rip off of Wibble-Wobble.com XscaleCtrl (http://www.handango.com/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?productId=54266) that I have seen and verified on Handango, this version goes by the name of XScale Overclock For Pocket PC by PSI (http://www.handango.com/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?productId=87124) and has been "hacked" to make it look like someone else's work.

This "hacked" version is based on an old version (1.2) of XScaleCtrl's binary files and is being sold at a higher price than the original from Wibble-Wobble.com (http://www.wibble-wobble.com/wince/xscalectrl/).

Details can be found here : http://www.wibble-wobble.com/wince/xscalectrl/ripoff/

That's horrible. The application is almost a 100% match. Only a couple minor changes.

Have you notified Handango?
