When your tech gadgets have some of the most iconic and beautifully crafted designs on the planet, you would expect that some companies might take inspiration from them. Also, when you have a marketing machine that is second to none, you would also expect others to follow your lead. But, sometimes Apple's "competitors" simply go too far.
We thought it would be entertaining to share some of the funniest new products or marketing campaigns that seem to be shameless ripoffs of Apple. The ones we are including are not subtle facsimiles. No, these are obvious copycats that just showed up at CES 2016 this year.
Of course, some design aesthetics are bound to be similar, but it should not be that hard to come up with a combination of shape, sizes and colors that are unique and creative without looking like every other Apple product. These knock-offs beg the question, "Can't these companies come up with their own ideas?"
You can see the ones we chose in the thread below. If you can find any others that we missed so far this year, feel free to add it to the discussion.
