It’s a common way to get a cheap laugh: mention that China doesn’t care about IP infringement and that a lot of fake products exist. There are a good number of people willing to copy just about anything if it gives them a way to make a quick Yuan. So color me unsurprised to find a fake MacBook Air at one of the small booths hidden in the corner.

The fact that it was presented at the front of a moulding company booth makes it all the more amusing. This wasn’t a system, but a picture of an iOS desktop was plastered on the ‘screen’. Someone should tell these guys about what the MacBook chassis color actually is, and how the logo isn’t fully underlined.

They also got a bit agitated when I started taking pictures.

    Nope, "color me <whatever>" is a totally normal phrase.

    Its a colloquialism.
    How about an example like, "I'm good?" Good is an adjective. It should read, "I'm well".
    "Color me X," is not grammatically wrong. Its also spelled correctly. Its just incorrect usage of the English language.

    Still, we can alway get into a religious war over this if you want to. ;-)

    "Its just incorrect usage of the English language."

    Nope. Wrong. Totally wrong. Just stop digging. Language is for conveying ideas, and everyone knows what he means when he says that. He didn't coin that phrase. And even if he did, so what? People do that all the time.

    "I am well" is also wrong (unless specifically talking about health). Good is an adjective, yes. You are saying that your state of being is good. You don't want an adverb there. You're not trying to say you are good at feeling. Yeah, "am" is a verb. A linking verb. Pop quiz! "The cake is delicious" or "The cake is deliciously"? "Is" is a verb so clearly you need an adverb there right? Right? Wrong.

    "Colour me XYZ" is a perfectly normal expression in English.

    Whoops.

    The phrase is fine, but "color" is missing a 'u'. ;-) Reply

    There is a Chinese Linux distribution that aims to copy OS X, at least visually, a great deal, too. Reply
