Chinese knockoff makers gets into the super-thin notebook game in a big way with the $499 AirBook. We’ve played around with it for a while now and can say that it looks very similar to Apple’s MacBook Air, and it’s very cheap. Unfortunately being cheap comes at a price.

A fat Chinese lady from Qingdao
, a city in eastern China, has became famous on wearing this ‘high-tech’ anti-tanning swimwear. The black latex swimsuit has covered her whole body including her head, only her eyes, mouth and both hands can be seen. The purpose of this custom-made swimsuit is to prevent skin exposure to the sun (prevent tanning), and perhaps protection against jellyfish when swimming.

China’s homegrown smartphone brand Xiaomi is increasingly looking like Apple. After the launch of Xiaomi Mi-Two, the company has announced the release of its latest product — Xiaomi Box. It’s a set top box that looks very alike to Apple TV, but offers at a very tempting price. Although China has a flood of cheap Android TV dongles and set-top boxes , Xiaomi Box is still arguably competitive.

We have to admit Apple’s new iMac is the thinnest all-in-one PC in the world, not even the Chinese knockoff experts could duplicate. With this new iMac knockoff, it also has been slimmed down and its hardwares have been improved from the previous generation. Specs-wise, the AIO desktop PC packs a 21.5-inch 1920×1080 display, can be configured with Intel’s Sandy Bridge core processors on its Intel H61 Express Chipset, 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, four USB 2.0 ports, a VGA port, a LAN port, and an aluminum enclosure. Also, it can run Windows 7 or Windows 8! Cool huh?

Foxconn has partnered with an university in China to provide a summer internship for the university students to earn some work experiences (assembling iPhones and iPads?). But the stupidest thing is this internship program is a compulsory curriculum
. Students would NOT
be permitted to graduate if they don’t participate the work experience.

Remember the Russian guy who got fooled with a 128MB hard drive
? But hey, he is not the only one. A Chinese man who previously bought a 160GB hard disk with only 220RMB ($35) on Taobao. And finally, it turns out to be a fake hard drive that packs with various machining parts and a USB drive. Let’s go and check it out after the break.
The casing carries the SAMSUNG brand and a stamp of “Made in HONG KONG” at the rear. We wonder when did Hong Kong start to manufacture hard drives?
