Laptops, iPhones stolen from Apple Store

Wired: Apple's carefully thought out notebook designs, and the clean lines of the iconic Apple Stores, make things very easy for smash and grab thieves.

Better. Faster. Easier. That is the slogan for Apple's new operating system, OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. It could also refer to the heist that took place yesterday in Marlton, New Jersey. First, the uncluttered, open design of the store, unencumbered by ugly metal shutters, made it easy to smash the plate glass window with just one blow.

Next, the thieves signaled to the security guard that they had a gun and took off along the long, clear tables of merchandise, the straight run allowing them to efficiently scoop MacBooks and iPods into their swag bags. The magsafe cords detached instantly, offering no resistance and leaving power sockets undamaged. (PC, Tech)

I don't mind that the Apple store was robbed as long as noone was harmed, Apple should lower tthe prices tbh.

The way the narrator is speaking almost sounds like he's glamorizing it.

Seriously. For a second I thought I was watching a soccer game.

Anyway, those guys absolutely went to town. The security guard was like....@$%#! and ran the other direction.

I was impressed.
The store had no metal gate which every store should have and the criminals only took 31 seconds to grab everything. There is no way they will get caught unless they go bragging about it or sell it all at once on ebay.

I live literally 3 minutes away.
I'm glad they did it because these elitist wannabes don't even service correctly. They refused to fix my macbook. (Graphics card problem, screen flickering). Whoever said Karma's a bit**. you're absolutely right.

I hope those guys sell it, then get caught though so everyone gets screwed. HA

Are all US news channels like that???

He spoke as if it was THE MOST IIIINCREDIBLE THING EVER!!! and made the burgalars look like skilled people who we should applaud...
Jeebus  +   1974d ago
Pretty much
Except they normally give the burglars' Myspace pages so you can compliment them yourself.
f789790  +   1974d ago
No. This was the only time.
But come on. You had to be impressed with how well it went.
Johnny Jiron  +   1974d ago
Its ironic really...
It's like a a metaphor for the lack security thats comes with Apple's OS. I think this is an epic PR stunt from the Microsoft camp! A lead up to the opening of the Microsoft store I tells ya.

wow
those guys are AMAZING!
