iPod shuffle knockoff

LuxPro today debuted its own version of the iPod shuffle: the Super shuffle. The flash-based player not only trades on Apple's 'shuffle' brand, but also is a , offering a stunningly similar appearance, but more features. Taiwan-based LuxPro designed the device with the same white plastic and white headphones as Apple's iPod shuffle; it features USB 2.0 connectivity, Win/Mac compatibility, a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery (12-hour battery life), and support for MP3, MP3-VBR, WMA, WMA-DRM, WAV music formats. The music device also adds an FM radio tuner and voice recording functions. It is slightly larger than Apple's player, but features the same player interface (with additional buttons on the back of the device). It will be available in both 512MB and 1GB versions.

    No, actually this is called a "replica" and is illegal in all countries that have some kind of law system in place ;-)

    Luxpro?

    Check out the "Luxpro" site - got to love their odd copywriting:

    "LUXPRO CORPORATION is recognized by a technological group. They work in researching, designing, and innovation products for over 30 years. LUXPRO always insists to provide you comfortable customer services and high quality products to match your requirements.

    We will keep going to be a designing leader. Our products are always so useful to meet what you need. Our mission is to improve your living quality and to create your life value. If you can imagine it, LUXPRO CORPORATION can make it.

    No matter how old you are, what you do, or where you live, chances are a LUXPRO CORPORATION product touches your life."

    It wouldn't surprise me if we discover that "Luxpro" is an underworld colony hidden somewhere beneath an artificial island run by a mad dictator - his desire? Take over the WORLD!!

    "Soon, I will touch the lives of MEEEELLLIONS, BEEELLLIONS OF PEEEPLE! AND NO ONE WILL STOP MEEEEE!"

    Sometimes...

    I think Apple might get a little too trigger-happy. THIS time I hope they sue the b******* and win big...this is just wrong!

    Back of a truck job

    Must have been one design rejected by Apple and have fallen off the back of a truck, and then got picked up by LuxPro. This is a joke right? :D

    You have to be kidding...

    I would never be able to live with myself if I actually bought this thing. I'm sure theres some kindof of immense catch. Like price must certainly be higher. And I bet a dollar the build quality is nowhere near Apple's. But mostly, it is such a blatant rip off by a company who'se obvious only intent was to siphon sales from an oustandingly popular product. I would never ever buy one.
