Even the boxes in which the iPods are packaged are counterfeits.
“Note [that] the On/Off switch on the fake iPod shuffle has no repeat setting. Also, [it has] no battery light indicator,” iPod Gear reports. “The fake iPod nano’s screen is very different in shape [and] the interface is nothing like the iPod interface.”
