What's the scariest thing about those fake Apple stores in China?

  • How real they looked.
  • That even some of the employees didn't know that they were fake.
  • If the Chinese can copy that, what else can they copy?
  • That on the outside of each building were plaques that say "Designed by Apple in California".
  • It reminds me of that ancient Chinese saying... Imitation is the sincerest form of world domination.
  • They're not that scary, around here we call them The Microsoft Store!

 About us...

The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture, created by Nitrozac and Snaggy, and updated three times a week. We like to feature the people and events that are making today's tech news.

We've been making comics on the web since early 1999, and The Joy of Tech just celebrated its 10th anniversary. We're very proud to be featured regularly on places like AllThingsD (from the people who publish The Wall Street Journal), Bloomberg Businessweek, Macworld UK magazine, Folha in Brazil, and others, both on the web and in print.

We currently live on Vancouver Island, Canada, where we have a lovely perspective of the silicon valleys to the south. We make The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on our MacBook Pros, running Mac OS X Snow Leopard. We use software from Apple, Adobe, BBedit, OpenOffice.org, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to draw her illustrations.
