Taiwanese Manufacturer Commits Suicide

A Taiwanese manufacturer by the name of LuxPro has decided to commit legal suicide by making a total rip-off of the iPod shuffle. There have been a lot of rip-offs of Apple's products over the years but this one takes the cake. The only thing that stops this from looking exactly the same as an iPod shuffle is that they added (enabled?) features that the iPod shuffle doesn't have. The retards even went so far as to call it a "Super Shuffle." It goes without saying that Apple's lawyers will be ripping these guys a new asshole the size of the Grand Canyon any minute now.

I do seem to remember reading someplace that the iPod shuffle's chips actually support FM radio and voice recording but Apple didn't enable those features. So it's entirely possible that this rip-off actually *is* an iPod shuffle internally, just with different software and slightly different controls on the rear.
