    Where is the "hidden" location tracking from Apple? Now is the time they can take this advantage to know where the devices have been taken.

    ...the iJackers were last seen sauntering away, exuding an air of casual indifference. Police caution the public not approach the suspects, who are described as unarmed but extremely boring

    They did!

    "likely would have gotten away with even more"

    Notice the "even more"? They only got 2 out of 5 pallets of minis.

    "Police suspect... someone gave... access to enter... and also to let them out."

    Notice the "let them out"? They got away with the 2 pallets.

    Pick one up on a street corner near you...

  12. Those iThieves need to be iNcarcerated till windows phone gets 50% marketshare (which may never occur)
     
  13. Because f this kind of event, apple don't trust JFK international airport anymore. So, they made their own airport just like UPS did, they called it iAirport..
     
  14. Hey.it really works..........
     
  15. I thought apple will call iAss (international apple space station) :)
     
  16. I'm not a fan of stealing but seeing as apple was the only thing getting stolen from... I wish they would have got away with this one. Too bad they will proly get iSued.

    Who could have imagined that goofy old Steve Ballmer has his own team of black ops commandos...:eek: !!

    (It's like I always say, "if you're going to embrace a conspiracy theory, don't half-a** it, go all in)...;)

    Not so fast buster, you're not going to debunk this that easily.....:p
    Well, you don't think Ballmer would actually go himself, do you? So, his butler was probably in charge of the strike team.:D

    Since they were still on pallets, I'm guessing they aren't able to, but what do I know:):oops:

    Surveillance must have been controlled by Windows with a back-door entrance.

    I'm having a great amount of difficulty restraining myself from replying to this with any one of a number of, "back door", "pants down", and "don't ask, don't tell", innuendos.:eek:
