If you went to a pharmacy that was selling pills quarter the price of the market, and you were wondering why they had no effect on you, you likely bought knock off pills. Almost half a million got confiscated yesterday. The pills are so dangerous they may cause death in worst cases. Makes you think twice when stepping inside a pharmacy.[Source]
That’s not a Cayenne up there, it’s a Hawtai. China being the masters of cloning have released an almost copy/paste version of the Porsche Cayenne and for less than 1/4 of the Cayenne’s price. According to autoevolution its starting price is at $20,000 (~KD 5,700). Someone should get the franchise for the fun of it.
I spent a good chunk of my time today browsing Chinese websites trying to find the source and the specs of this phone. I guess we’re going to run out of fruit names for brands soon. I couldn’t find a lot of useful info, only that it has similar specs to the iPhone 4S and costs around $225 (KD ~64). More photos [here].
A Chinese company made an Android device using the design of the leaked iPhone 5. What’s worse is they have actually patented the design of the device in China and are threatening to sue Apple if the iPhone 5 looks anything like their knock-off version. I always thought the patent system was unjust, this just further proves my point.
The Goophone (what they named it) has some surprisingly good specs and can rival the current Android flagships like the HTC One X and Samsung SIII. The device comes with a 1.4Ghz quad-core processor, 1 GB RAM and 8-megapixel camera. On top of that it runs on Android 4.0 ICS but with an iOS 6 theme, kinda ironic. Asking price? ~KD 85 ($299).[Source]
Most of us can’t afford a Lamborghini Reventon, but most of us wouldn’t build one either. There are only 21 of these rides in the world and Wang Jian just made the homemade 22nd Reventon. He got the engine from a used Nissan van and the chassis from a Volkswagon. The nationalpost calls it the “Wang-borghini”, it cost him around $9,500 total to build.
Although the car is missing headlights and the windshield it doesn’t look that bad actually. I bet you get the best feeling when you build your own car from scratch, then drive it every day. It’s no surprise the guy is Chinese, I’m not sure if there’s anything left that they haven’t made a copy of. His new ride goes upto 160 MPH which is more than I expected.
