If imitation is really the sincerest form of flattery, than tech manufacturers are certainly a sycophantic lot. And the most popular object of their affection always seems to be something from Apple.
Take the "iPod mouse" from Buffalo, for instance. If it didn't have a retractable USB line hanging out awkwardly like an umbilical cord, it could have been separated at birth from the real thing. Not only that, but it also resembles similar products from Anyzen and Samsung. So make it a three-fer for Buffalo.
