Fake USB Wireless Adapter From Beijing

Everyone wants to have wireless in their computers nowadays but you might want to make sure you are buying from someone reputable. The image above is from Engadget and was supposedly being sold in Beijing as a wireless USB adapter. You can obviously see that if the case was closed you wouldn’t be able to see the lack of internal circuitry. It is a toss up whether the image is something that was really being sold or whether this was just a joke. It actually reminds me of a time that I worked at a retail store and I found out that someone had returned an Xbox and put canned vegetables inside the Xbox casing. They had gutted the whole thing which meant they had a working Xbox system just without the pretty outside case…luckily I wasn’t the one that accepted the return :) .
