[QUOTE=wconeybeer;2521079] our economy would be in much better shape if people were more conscious of where their money was going. .[/QUOTE]Most people do not care how a product was made/processed or where it came from. They just want “a” product. I completely agree the main problem is most consumers do not THINK before they buy and China business men know this.
If you want a 100% true Ipod, go to an Apple store and get one. Pay top dollar, get minimal support, lots of limitations and a product made in China (FoxConn), but controlled by Apple.
If you just want a compatible thing. Go to a toy store (they love cheap plastic crap) and get one ultra cheap. It looks cheap, it is cheap, get NO support, unlimited possibilities (everything the hardware can do, you can do) and a product made in China (not FoxConn but some stupid family business using its family members as slaves), not controlled by anybody or anything.
