Chinese service adds fake 'sent from my iPhone' tag to your email

Do you break down in a fit of jealousy whenever someone sends you an email with that smug 'sent from my iPhone' tagline? Now there's a way to join them, without having to fork over any of that big iPhone money. A Chinese service will automatically add the tagline to every email you send, for just $1 a month.

Advertisements listed on the Chinese sales site Taobao say "The iPhone is too expensive. If you don't want to spend that money, then fake it!" All you need to do is sign up and hand over your email password, and you too can look like one of those fancy iPhone toting high rollers.

The offers are targeting users of China's QQ messaging service, which is used mostly by younger, less affluent customers outside of China's major cities. With the prestigious iPhone costing close to $800 in China, it's not surprising that a lot of people want to fake it.

Maybe that guy with the fake iPhone stoves should modify them to brand 'cooked on my iPhone' into the food.
