When can't get one, make a clone.
iPad launched in Australia few days ago, and this new toy has drawn lots of attention around the world. What about China?
"Apple may have sold 2 million of its new iPad tablet computers in less than two months, but it now has a Chinese challenger - the identical looking iPed." Sydney Morning Herald, June 2, 2010.
From all the articles that I've read and search about China, I came across to this one about the new competitive gadget that designed in China called iPed. It looks almost the same as iPad and it’s an internet –based, android- based copycat package. That makes me wonder one thing, is it because the closeness of information in China that Chinese often come with those counterfeit products?
China has been using every means to filter the information on the internet and tend to shape the public's thoughts by blocking information and stopping international firms set business on the mainland. Maybe that's the core reason why China is the largest kingdom of counterfeit under its great firewall. Due the initial desire of wanting to know and wanting to get, Chinese people come to make their own things since they are limited in fulfilling their desires.
