I have seen a number of iPod knock-offs, but the buyer would have to be mentally retarded to think any of them were real.

Man, these Fake I Pod Shuffles are all over e-bay. I bought a 1 gig shuffle for my brother and when i was looking around on e-bay these ones just looked funny. But, if you didnt look realy close it would be very difficult to tell they were not real. The nano ripoffs are much easier to spot but the shuffles... man, they look real.
