Lots of crazy things from Asia have been coming to the US lately. Smaller cars, Toilets that clean and warm your butt, and that very very strange show Hole in the Wall to name a few. One other thing that is making it’s way west isn’t as good: Knockoffs *Queue the scary music*. Engadget has a recurring blog series called “Keepin’ it real fake” which features all of the hilariously awful knockoffs people have spotted around the world (although, to be fair, or unfair as the case may be, it’s mostly from China).
We sit there and wonder how anybody could ever fall for those terrible knockoffs that probably barely work, then rush out to the Sprint store to pick up our ‘brand new’ Instinct or Bold or Xpressmusic or Xperia or G1 or Voyager or whatever else they’re churning out.
