Just for fun, I went to the store's site to see how quick Apple is. You can't make any reservations anymore until the 12th, so I guess they hope to be back in business in time for the new phone.

Isn't there a remote kill switch that they can enable once the stolen S/Ns are hooked up to the internet?

You can tell those idiots aren't MR readers. If they were, they would have waited until the new iPhone and iPad mini were in-store. Ya know, to really make it worth their while.

KIDDING!
Thievery = lame.

I live close to this one and this is the second time their glass front has been smashed by something. Odd.

Stolen car, maybe?

Cannot believe these Apple stores do not have car stop barriers (giant metal/granite poles that stop cars from going into store fronts)?

Guaranteed they will have them in front of the store by the time it reopens.

Best Buy has them in front of most of their stores.

I HATE those things. When I worked at best buy (16 years ago) sometimes we'd have to bring out stuff that wouldn't fit between them. I also used to run into them all the time, but that's cause I don't watch where I'm going.

Terrible

I hate it when Apple Stores get vandalized and burglarized. But it just proves the demand and value for their products. Other brands just don't have the same "demand".

Those things are ugly and you cannot put them in if your store is on the street or in some malls.

Personally, I don't mind those comments. They're made for humorous purposes and I have a sense of humor so I appreciate them. Maybe you should grow a sense of humor so that you too can have fun on this site.

iDrive Through

I can see that Apple is speeding up the progress of its new iDrive Through service for September 12. Jony just needs to make a few tweaks and we will be good to go.
