  • Chinese clone the iPad, add a keyboard


    Well know that’s an abonination. This Chinese crazy pad runs Windows and has a 10-inch screen running an Antom N450 processor. There’s no telling if this thing actually runs or not – the screen looks pretty janky – and there are no prices. Read More

  • Shocking iPods surface again, along with shock mice, shock USB drives

    I love finding stuff like this in Chinatown. Here in Seattle I found two awesome dart guns that fired those little orange darts like 30 feet. Amazing. And Geeksugar has located a collection of prank shock-gadgets — joy buzzers for this modern age. And here I thought this was a shock mouse! There’s an iPod version too, and if it looks familiar, that’s because you saw me and… Read More

    Now this is pretty cool. Build 5A258f of the new iPhone firmware will include Chinese input methods using handwriting recognition. Sadly, this only works with Chinese and not Japanese or even English. Chinese iPhone soon? I’d bet on it. Read More

  • iCool Phone Is Two Phones In One

    World traveler, are ya? You, my friend, need the new iCool G700. It looks like a Vertu candybar phone on the outside, but flip it open and hoo boy, there’s another phone that looks like a Motorola RAZR clamshell phone (except much fatter). You’ll be able to use two different international GSM SIM cards. The phones share the same battery and can both be on simultaneously because… Read More

  • Want to Buy the Slinky Chair?

    Remember the Slinky Chair? It was featured on the Feb. 8th episode of Diggnation, where Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht repeatedly mentioned the hot Japanese girl in the video. Actually, the girl is probably Chinese because Mandarin is overheard in the clip, but whatever. I guess we all look the same to you, Kevin and Alex. It turns out the chair is available online for $800. The FlexibleLove… Read More

    If you were born in 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983 or 1995, you are considered a pig, according to the Chinese zodiac.

The cards feature limited-edition designs of the… Read More

  • The Microsoft Zune Has a Chinese Knockoff Already

    Oriphe Industrial Limited apparently saw the leaked Microsoft Zune photos a few months back and quickly went to work. And by work, we mean stealing Microsoft’s design. Their MP4 music player looks, well, pretty similar to the Zune, and plays AMW/MTV/MPEG/AVI video, JPEG photos, eBook text files, and MP3 music. Their MP3 music players play MP3/WMA/WAV and have FM radio recording, which… Read More
