I have written before about my feelings about the cloning business in Germany. Today I got surprised about the dimensions that these “Cloning Olympics” took:

Club Mom is a NYC based startup for moms. It has been pretty successful in creating a social network around parents. According to Alexa, the growth is not incredible high, but Club Mom is certainly on a good track. Once Club Mom took some VC money and got mentioned on Techcrunch, it took not long until the first cloning businesses popped up:

    - I want a robot that will pour a beer with a perfect head too!

    I guess there is only a handful of German clones, that sold out, but nowadays I doubt that many of them will survive on the long run.

    Still I wish them all the best!
