    Cute!

    I wonder if there is a lawsuit in the making over the sound-a-like naming and overall appearance?
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Here's a guy who made a Leica M9 skin for his iPhone!

    Pretty cool.... until it starts getting mass produced.

    I'll look great shooting with the Likea while wearing my $5 Rolex I got from the swap meet. It's so hard living the lifestyle of the rich and famous

    That $5 Rolex might last about as long as this $20 Likea once it starts to rain. In fact it might be fun to watch the two of them in a rain storm to see which fails first.

    One of my friend made fake watch trade between hongkong and istanbul. He revealed a very important secret , all the istanbul luxury market sells fake omegas and others. I looked his watch , its a 50 dollar fake and quality was excellent and it is mechanical not cell driven.
    There is tremondous cnc work behind these fakes and I am sure a fake watch factory can easily start to fake Leica business. Not the newest ones but the oldest ones.
    Energy and raw materials costs 1/10 compared to Western countries and people work 15 hours , 6 days for 80 dollars.
    If I go there one day , may be I can think to invest a small shop and few workers. If I produce 300 , 1924 Leica , I am sure Leica group members would be crazy to buy them.
