The only thing missing from the above rip off is Apple's distinctive logo and the use of OS X as this shameless iMac copy-cat actually rather runs on an Android based OS, and not the good old OS X that everybody else, from Android, Linux and Microsoft and etc., also loves to borrow and copy features from.
I'm sure that this iMac rip off also has a cheap price to help justify its cheap hardware, but that's just an assumption on my part. Whether it copies Apple's exact components or not, such as it use of vivid IPS LED screens, Intel cpu's, etc., I don't know, but one thing I do: I wouldn't want to go anywhere near one, let alone buy one!
What is it with the Chinese when it comes to the wholesale ripping off of other nations intellectual property and ideas anyway? I've even seen where they will buy and reverse engineer an entire jet fighter, such as an F-16, for crying out loud! Personally, if my two favorite nations, Canada or the great nation of Germany, where to also do the same thing, and to the same degree, I think I would hang my head in shame, but not so for the Chinese, no sir, they seem to actually take great pride in bragging that others nations ideas are actually the result of their own ingenuity. Shame, shame, I say!
Even though Microsoft, which has been trying to catch up to Apple recently, for example, will at least add their own spin on things by providing a few new improvements, etc., but not so with all of these cheap Chinese clones, all of which are pretty much inferior in every way.
Of course, I'm pretty dang bloody sure that Apple hasn't exactly seen the last of these copy cats, and that you can bet your last pair of green pair of polka-dot bloomers on. Even though many believe it will be hard, if not impossible, for others such as Microsoft, HP, etc., to ever pass Apple that won't stop them from trying.
In conclusion, as pathetic as all of these Apple rip-offs are, when it comes to the Chinese no one does it better or more blatantly than they. I just wish they didn't have to be so obvious, shameless and blatant in the process.
And that's my 2 cents 4 this Monday, August 02, 2010
