Don't get me wrong, I love Chinese innovators, but these are just silly.

Unlike Apple, I love to see competition in the tablet space. And I don’t think every black square is an iPad rip off. However, this “media tablet” family was clearly inspired by Cupertino in the worst possible way.

  This is not inspired by the Dyson Air Multiplier. At all. Yup.

  iRobot Roomba vacuum, anyone? You’re mistaken. This is the Xrobot. See the difference?
