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.
I already see a lawsuit coming from Apple® =P
hes not selling them….
As if that ever stopped Apple from suing anyone
why would apple sue him for promoting their product? usually companies sue when it hurts their business, not helps it… dumba$$
I wonder what actually happened to those apples. Surprising they did not end up on ebay.
that’s what i call dual core. groan.
I suppose at least he was doing something that got him worldwide recognition, couldn’t quite a few of us use that exact thing!?
Brand name infatuation is a lot different than being a “geek.”
Loving Apple is like the farthest thing from being a “geek” there is.
A monopolistic, lawsuit happy, DRM loving, proprietary-hardware-making computer company is pretty much the anti-geek.
dude. chill. “geek” isn’t a proprietary term–doesn’t belong to apple, doesn’t belong to you.
doesn’t belong to boing boing, either. 😉 if apple fans want to get their geek on, i say let them.
who peed in your post toasties?
The first photo really does look like a ‘photoshop’… So how do we even know the other two are real???
The first photo is the sticker itself on the apple. That is why it looks different.
You are a dumbass.. learn to read.
The first photo is the sticker itself on the apple…
And some of the apples play music?? WTF: Apple Player
Too bad he didn’t have an orchard of McIntosh apples… (No – that’s not a misspelling – that’s how you spell the name of the fruit that the computer is named for.)
Ah those look tasty
What if the apples turn out to be toxic?
It could also be seen that the apple-grower is cashing in on the popularity/fame of the apple trademrk to sell his products.
Personally i dont’ like eating apples, yet I’d consider one like these.
Putting them on ebay would be a good idea, and apple doesnt’ lawsuits abt each and evythn cmon.
Aww… they are soo CUTE!
Yeah!!!, friky apples!!!
Interesting technique I have to try that with some of my apple trees 😀
you’ve known for “years” that the iphone was extremely popular in Japan?
um… since the iphone only came on the market last year, your knowing for years would seem to be what… poetic licence at best?
and you know… it’s NOT extremely popular in Japan. 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…
sensationalist writing is fine but at least make *some* effort to have your work contain a modicum of truth.
que hecho las trallas!!
ahora que lo haga con sus nalgas!!!!!!

cool, i’m gonna try that on our apple tree ^_^

No one can succeed without any hard work. Karl Max was successful, because he spent more than 30 years writing the book "Communist Manifesto"; Tomas Edison succeeded, because he had experimented thousands of times to find the best material for lights. Every success calls for hard work. If you want to suc-ceed, work hard first.
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.
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.
OMG if i still lived in Connecticut i could do that cuz there was an apple tree near the park. But i haven’t heared of any apple trees in Texas… too bad… 🙁
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

cool collection of apples….
… 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.

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

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.
So Cute . .
