  2. Woman Angry at iPhone Theft Responds With Kind of Racist Tumblr, Everyone Loses

    For the record: "Unattended on a beach at night" is a terrible place to put anything you don't want stolen immediately.

    A note to potential thieves -- if you're going to steal someone's iPhone, delete the info on it after you do. Or at the very least, make sure you shut off the former owner's automatic photo upload service. Otherwise, you run the risk of becoming the star of a Tumblr making all your selfies and snapshots available to the whole of the Internet.

  4. Thieves Steal Emu From Australian Wildlife Park, Leave Staff More Confused Than Angry

    Staff at Australia's Featherdale Wildlife Park are scratching their heads over the recent theft of one of their emus.

  6. Man Recovers Stolen iPhone by Luring Thief to His Apartment Through OkCupid

    One of the unfortunate happenstances of the digital age we live in is the fact that items like iPhones have become increasingly more likely to be stolen. Everyone wants the latest phone, tablet, computer, or whatever the newest thing companies like Apple are producing.

  7. What Could $1.6 Million In Stolen Apple Products Look Like?

    Whatever hangovers, hookups, or regrettable strikeouts your New Year's Eve may have had in store, we're prepared to say your evening was probably still better than that of Apple Store employees in Paris, who not only had to work the holiday, but spent it being held up by a team of armed robbers.

    If you're a tiny, single-celled animal like a protozoan, photosynthesis is a pretty neat ability, as being able to make food just by laying in the sun is significantly easier than going out and hunting down your own meals. Unfortunately for protozoa, photosynthesis is also a rather tricky proposition, requiring millions of years of evolutionary practice to evolve. One species has developed its own workaround for that small problem, though -- it got the best of both worlds by absorbing algae cells and stealing the genes that control photosynthesis right out of their DNA.
