What are the latest trends in the news? Well, fake news is one. Another is deepfakes; basically doctored videos that look and sound real. Here’s another to think about it. I’ll call it deep fake Apple accessories.
Got it figured out yet? No, it’s not a fake iPhone. All smartphones look much the same these days. Flat slabs of glass, giant display, rounded corners. Move along. Nothing to see there.
How about fake Apple accessories?
Apple’s fastest-growing new product line is called Wearables and that’s where you find iPhone accessories like Apple Watch, AirPods, even Beats headphones. What’s the fake part? Those iconic AirPods are a hit that tells everyone who notices just how cool you really are. Those bright white sticks falling from your ears show you as a member of, 1) a technology cult, 2) the church of Apple, 3) someone with money to burn, 4) someone who has parents with money to burn.
Where do you fit in?
It doesn’t matter because you can find AirPod knockoffs all over Amazon, some as low as $40, but here’s a deal you can’t pass up if you want to look cooler than anybody with a Samsung Galaxy phone.
Fake AirPods. No, not AirPod knockoffs. At least those, too, are Bluetooth, pair to your iPhone and play music. No. These only cost $12.
Now, it’s obvious these are chrome-looking special AirPods but they don’t even play music. They’re like earrings without the rings or the hole in the ear.
I know what you’re thinking.
“Where can I get them, Alex?” They’re sold by an Australian company called ASOS.
So, tell me the truth. Would you rather have those non-sound knockoffs? Or, 24-chocolate chip cookies from McDonald’s?
