    Default 'iMore Getting Scraped!'

    Now I know that iMore would be the one to put out a case review that is all their own work, but check the similarities between these two reviews. Here's a couple of snippets for your edification.

    They even stole the same artwork too. Methinks the second link needs a stern talking to...

    It's like they ran it through a thesaurus filter or something just to change random words to synonyms, completely devoid of context.

    I was particularly impressed by that one. I guess that's one way to avoid plagiarism scanners.

    Wow.. shame on them. I'm really unimpressed by their "originality" (or lack, thereof).

    I have no doubts whatsoever that they can come up with their own article. But this.. they dropped the ball.

    Wow- the cribbed version reads like a bad translation by non-English speakers: ...equally and even more profoundly ridiculous/ awful than the Otterbox example. Worth a quick skim if you need a chuckle.
