knockoffs

  • Lawyer Bait: The iFrame Digital Picture Frame

    I wonder whether the creators of this particular digital picture frame know that Apple actually has something called iFrame. I mean, sure, it’s just a really dumb (and more or less defunct) resolution, but still, if you’re going to make an iPad lookalike, it’s good to mitigate risk by giving it some obscure name.

  • It's a list of fake things that look like real things

    I point you in the direction of Business Insider, which has compiled a list of knock-off products that’s worth your time. It’s not just the typical, Chinese iPhone wannabe, either. Like, nalencia oranges? Never heard of those. Dolce & Banana? I might be able to afford that. And, hmm, that looks an awful like the Amazon Kindle, but it’s not quite it, now is it? Read More

  • MacBook Air lookalike is more netbook-y but only costs $250

    Oh wow, take a look at that MacBook Ai—hey, that’s not a MacBook Air! It’s a $250 netbook from China! That’s actually not too bad of a deal, considering that the machine has a 12.1-inch 1366×768 display, weighs just under three pounds, and is less than an inch thick. Read More

  • Wii Fit Balance Board now comes in 'knockoff blue'

    Looking for a Wii Balance Board but don’t want to have to buy Wii Fit just to get one? Well you, my friend, are in luck. Read More

  • Sony VAIO P knockoff – the ‘VAINO’ – is a suckier, netbookier version

    Outstanding. The Sony VAIO P has a knockoff in the “VAINO” – a name which seems to suggest someone beginning to say “VAIO” and then interrupted with a “No, it’s not.” Don’t be fooled with the tricky camera work here, either, because the VAINO is the size of a standard 10-inch netbook and has standard 10-inch netbook specs.

  • Video: The Hiphone gets unboxed, reviewed

    Another day, another Apple knockoff. Meet the Hiphone, a clone from Hong Kong. It sure looks like an iPhone, and is packaged like an iPhone, but it apparently isn’t anything like the iPhone. I’ve used this phone before. It’s a quad-band GSM phone that comes unlocked, feel free to add your own SIM, but it’s got Satan’s touchscreen. Stick with the original, kids. Read More

  • Geeks.com selling $70 iPod Touch knockoff

    I just received an e-mail from Geeks.com inviting me to “Touch the Future of Portable Entertainment” with this $70 device that looks an awful lot like my much more expensive iPod Touch, which I foolishly assumed was already the future of portable entertainment. So how does this thing stack up, spec-wise, to the iPod Touch? Read More

  • 'HiPhone' looks mighty familiar, almost iPhone-like

    All hail the new king of fake iPhones. It’s $239.00 (plus $15 shipping) direct from China, has two (count ‘em, two) SIM slots, triband GSM, is unlocked and carries no contract, comes with two (count ‘em, two) batteries, and I have no idea how much storage is onboard. Could be nothing, could somehow be a terabyte of flash memory. Check out this hot demo video, complete with… Read More

  • Asus Eee lookalike: Priced $50 more, big hand added

    Here’s an idea. Take a 2GB Asus Eee PC, change almost nothing, and add $50 to the price tag. That’s what Cybertron’s done with its “new” line of Mini-PC computers. For $349, you’ll get a 900Mhz Celeron M processor, 512MB or RAM, 7-inch 800×400 screen, 2GB flash drive, and everything else the Eee PC has. The operating system even looks the same, if not… Read More
