Chinese firm threatens to sue Apple, then sucks Mac OS X interface to its iPad-style tablet

At the beginning of last month, I read a news that puzzled me: a Chinese company whose name is quite strange to Great Long Brother was preparing to sue Apple for the design of the iPad, stating that its tablet first hit the market with a very similar look.

While we are still waiting for this action, the manufacturer decided to provoke a little bit of apple ire: the P88 as its tablet called gained a “makeup” on the interface: it still runs Microsoft Windows 7, but all customized with a theme identical to Mac OS X .

Does anyone still doubt that these guys just want to take advantage of free advertising? Humpf.
