Apple’s Apples… Talk About Geek Fruit

Posted on December 4, 2008

I have known for years that the iPhone was extremely popular in Japan, especially with the number of requests I got from friends asking me to send them one.

However, one very avid Apple fan, decided to show his love for the iPod and Apple in a different way.

An owner of a Fuji apple orchard printed up custom stickers of iPods and the Apple logo. He then put the stickers on his Fuji apples while they were still young and on the trees.

A month later after the apples had matured, he removed the stickers.

As you can see the lack of sun reaching the apple cause them to keep the stickers original design.

No word as to what was done with the box of Geek Apples, but they did say they were quite delicious.

Probably on Monday what we would have is a presentation of the model, available on sales few weeks after, and reductions on price for iPhone 3G from the very Monday. As per the pics, as fx writes, they are probably fake: No sense to have OS2 operating in a new iPhone.

My source was vague. I just checked with two of them - apparently they made sure to say the iPhone 3GS would go ON SALE today, but nothing about having it in your hand today. You can purchase the iPhone 3GS, right now, at the Apple Store online. Oh well - at least it’s just a week and a half away. wink

its high price compared with local alternatives which offer considerably more advanced options means that it's not taking off there as it has in other parts of the world. Apple fruit is full of iron. cheap air jordan

... that's not how the coloring on apples works. Sunlight isn't what gives apples their red coloring. Putting a sticker on an apple isn't going to inhibit the chromoplasts within the fruit.

if anything, apple should pay him money to sell those because it's like advertisement on food, suing him would be counter productive, then again it is apple, everything they have is counter productive

What the?? Apple Corp should sue this guy?? How about MOTHER EARTH suing Steve Jobs for ripping off one of her most beautiful fruits? Putting the logo of a corporation, which was borrowed from a fruit, BACK on that fruit, is called bastardization.

Apple would sue him for using their logo without their premission. Plus if he's selling them for his profit, with their logo is illeagal.
