Lightbulb WOWWY WOWWY!! Newegg clone!!!!!

hey, found a "newegg clone", and it's pretty fishy, seems to me like it's the same company or something

www.chiefvalue.com

i typed in "80GB" in the search box on both newegg and chiefvalue, and gave me THE EXACT SAME RESULTS, even with the refurbished ones and everything, and the shipping was the same, and price too. THe interferance also looks the same, like the specs of products at the bottom, and they layout and everything...

anyone knows what's going on?

Chief Value, is a sister company of newegg.com.

It was in a newegg.com press release.
