Apple Australia has lost patience with Buzzle, its biggest reseller, and placed the company into receivership, according to Computer Daily News.
Buzzle collapsed owing AUS$30m, almost half of which was owed to Apple. The company, formed last year through the amalgamation of six dealerships, operates 24 of Australia's 68 Applecentres, accounting for 40 per cent of Apple Australia's turnover. Combined sales are around AUS$85m a year.
