    WikiLeaks releases CIA hacks of Apple Mac computersThe Central Intelligence Agency is able to permanently infect an Apple Mac computer so that even reinstalling the operating system will not erase the bug, according to documents published Thursday by WikiLeaks. In its second release allegedly from the CIA's arsenal of hacking tools, WikiLeaks also said that it appears the US spy agency has been able since 2008 to insert it bugs onto new and unused iPhones by intervening in Apple's supply and distribution network. The release follows the initial publication on March 9 by the anti-secrecy group of thousands of pages of instructions and code from what it called the entire CIA arsenal of hacking tools.


  • Think your groceries are expensive? Japan has $27,000 melons.

    Think your groceries are expensive? Japan has $27,000 melons.Imagine going into a high-end luxury store filled with sparkling display cases, security at every turn and an attentive staff and finding not expensive jewelry but...fruit encased in the glass. In Sembikiya, Japan's oldest fruit shop, fruit is treated and sold like an elaborate gift. And this is no ordinary fruit. Sembikiya sells anything from heart-shaped watermelons to ping-pong ball sized "Ruby Roman" grapes to giant strawberries that are a bit more expensive than your average box of sad market fruit. SEE ALSO: People can't believe a supermarket is selling a single boxed strawberry for $22 Words can't describe how delicious this Melon was.  #GinzaSembikiya #Sembikiya by mango… http://t.co/7zPrWz6VU7 pic.twitter.com/eNNBohRVYR — InstaKyoto (@InstaKyoto) April 4, 2015 A post shared by @puapupupu on Jan 31, 2017 at 4:50pm PST According to CNN, cultivating these luxury fruits involves meticulous and labor-intensive practices. Although the way Japanese farmers grow these beauties is a secret, it was revealed that sometimes it takes 45 days to grow one strawberry and usually sell for 500,000 yen ($4,395) each. The strawberries even have a special name -  Bijin-hime, which means "beautiful princess". ONE STRAWBERRY is $4,395. And if you think that's just a bit beyond your fruit budget, in 2016 a premium Hokkaido cantaloupe sold for a record $27,240 (3 million yen) at an auction.   Expensive fruit isn't unique to Sembikiya, though. According to the Semikiya website, fruit is given as gifts to people who are important to you on special occasions. Soyeon Shim, dean of the School of Human Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, told CNN, Besides being a symbol of respect, the Japanese see fruit in spiritual terms, regularly offering it to the gods at home alters.  A post shared by ingingkiku (@ingingkiku) on Oct 23, 2016 at 4:21am PDT A piece of fruit this magnificent isn't sold in some regular cardboard box. The fruit is wrapped in packaging that, of course, matches is luxury. CNN reports that single strawberries are sold in packages that resemble jewelry boxes, while melons are sold in ornate wooden boxes.  A post shared by Cecilia Schena (@ceciliaske) on Aug 7, 2016 at 4:32am PDT To consumers, according to CNN, the expense represents quality and some say that they even taste better than normal-priced fruit.  Seeing as though one strawberry is more than four month's rent, we'll stick to our small, slightly mushy, questionable fruit. We'll admire these from afar. [H/T: CNN] WATCH: This nail polish is made from prosecco — making you both sparkly and tipsy
