One of my co-workers called me over to his desk to show me something on the computer. Turns out it was a piece of equipment me, an electrical engineer and a software engineer spent a year and a half developing. The company didn't send the unit to China to have it made. A new company in China bought one and reverse engineered it. The thing that pissed me off is they used MY 3d photo-realistic rendering also used by our marketing department. The same picture that's used on all the brochures and mailings and the website. They painted a strip on it, removed the logo and put on their own logo. They even had the nerve to say the unit was ISO certified. Ours is. Not theirs. I copied their altered picture into a mail and sent it to my boss asking "What's this?" along with the website address. Boy, is he gonna be shocked. He's out of the country right now. Can't wait until Monday. All of a sudden, I understand what other engineers must be feeling when the same thing happens to them.
