    You can knock off clothes, electronics and I'm sure other things, but an entire store?:laugh2:

    The Ultimate Knock-Off: A Fake Apple Store


    The best part of this is the Faux Apple Guru, looking cool...

    Apple may have opened only four stores in two cities in China so far, but unbeknownst to the company, they are already expanding elsewhere in country.

    A blogger in Kunming posted photos on Wednesday of a local store which, from a distance, looked just like one of the consumer electronics giants’ iconic full-service retail stores. It featred a glass exterior, pale wood display tables, a winding staircase and giant posters displaying the iPad 2 and other Apple products, plus a neatly organized accessories wall.

    “This was a total Apple store ripoff—a brilliant one,” the blogger, BirdAbroad, wrote. She called it “the best ripoff store we had ever seen.” Photos show employees in blue shirts and Apple-emblazoned name tags similar to those worn by Apple Store employees in Beijing and Shanghai.

    Of all the places you could ripoff... lol. Its a ripoff store of a ripoff store.

    In all seriousness though, Im in the process of setting up a hackintosh but my gtx 580 is making it tricky.

    Is the gtx 580 compatible with Mac? I don't know much about them, but I do know the difference in video cards is sort of a big thing. I don't know why the same card for a PC is tons less than for a Mac. I had to spend almost $300.00 to replace mine.

    I figured as much. I was wondering if you'd bought a video card compatible with the OS. If you didn't I'm thinking you're not going to get it to work.

    Do they call their employees the genuineness?
