Apple sue the poor suckers who buy the fakes not the rip-off artists that sell them, that's a smart business move, maybe next year the swiss will give away Sony MP3 players instead.
International financial heavyweights attending an economic conference in Switzerland were treated in their swag bags to a bright shiny iPod shuffle. One problem: It was a Chinese counterfeit. And not even a fake talking third-generation shuffle, but instead a second-generation clip-on knock-off. And the impostor doesn't even …
They should at least give them the Minigigi S-clip, which in the same form factor has an LCD and has been around for at least a year or so (but, sadly, I could not even find it on Seoul electronic markets - for obvious reasons IMHO...)
Er, "look 'n feel".
The foundation for numerous Apple lawsuits since time immemorial. "It looks a bit like something that we make and hold umpteen zillion patents on."
However, I would like to ask exactly how "Initially attractive branded corporate freebie turns out to be cheap shite" a) qualifies as news and b) surprises anyone?
