I saw this today and thought it was at least bold. You would think they would check the spelling.

Apple fake

I've spent a lot of time in that part of the world dating back to 1970. Even then it was not uncommon to walk down the street and find stores modeled after American retail sites. Books, clothes, tools and stereos were the dominent knock offs at the time, and all for pennies. There are no copyrite laws and to produce a good fake is to most of these retailers a badge of honor. Taiwan being the biggest outlet for most of these knock offs due to the presence of American armed forces and people like me on R/R.

The funniest site I can remember was a store front proudly proclaiming (Chinese here) and underneath "Welcome to Sars". In we went to see what a Sars was, and low and behold, bins and shelves full of poorly made Craftsman tool knock offs.

Reminds me of the time I was walking through a public market in Guatemala and in one booth was a shirt with "Adidas" on the front and "Reebok" on the back.

Nah, it couldn't have been a fake.  :P
