Fake iPods?, China goes one better!

They faked the whole store, amazing that someone could go to this level of detail :

Apparently some of the employees genuinely thought they worked for Apple as well.

Re: Fake iPods?, China goes one better!

Thats incredible! How on earth have they managed that? Surely there's regulations about what you can and cannot sell and enquireys about branding uses with head office before they are allowed to occupy the unit?!
Great effort though, it would have fooled me.

Re: Fake iPods?, China goes one better!

I doubt it very much.

A few bits of fake paper work that look official and bobs yer uncle.

Why would the owners of the unit bother checking it out? Too much hassle for them, when they ask for rent up front in places like that.

Better to get 6 moths rent and then the store close than have the unit empty and not bringing in any revenue.

And remember, its China, its not like the give a flying f**k for American IP/Copyright laws Laws now is it..

Re: Fake iPods?, China goes one better!

Clone copies of iPod suffle, iPod nano and the bigger iPod classic have been popping up in store, targeting at consumers who want to look cool without dishing out too much moolah. The clones or imitations sell for about 30% of the original iPod price and retailers willing to take the risk are making lucrative earnings from flogging these knock-offs. These fakes are hot stuff in more than one sense of the word. They are a hit contraband.

Re: Fake iPods?, China goes one better!

This is hilarious. I've heard of fake ipods etc, but making a replica store is beyond a joke.
