Look, even the old Greeks had it

Apple should take this as inspiration to go drive-through. More and more yanks are too fat to walk in to stores.

Apple doesn't have hundreds of billions, so I'm not sure what you are talking about.

I find it stupid how people have to rob to try and get some money. Why not just get a job???

I actually find it sad when I see how the human race has sunk so low.

Anyway, maybe Apple will think its because their items are too expensive for some people and decide to put prices down. That way I can buy all their things

Go Apple!!!

Mine too! They had a store before Sweden.

A drunk went through the front door of Trader Joe's, but he was there to buy Two Buck Chuck, not to steal.

UK comes in third for world obesity. Mind your country before criticizing others. If you want to discuss statistics, let's go ahead and discuss the olympics. Or why you're on a .com site rather than a .co.uk?

That's by design. Junk food is not only convenient but cheaper than healthy food. Former Senator Alan Simpson from Wyoming - who was appointed by Obama to his Fiscal Reform Commission - once openly spoke at a televised Senate hearing about Americans living too long and supported the idea of Americans drinking and smoking more.

He wasn't joking. He said Social Security would go bankrupt if larger numbers of Americans didn't start dying before they turned 65.

Of course he and all the other Senators have never seen an increase in the budget for the Pentagon, FBI or the rest of the "National Security state " that they have not supported.

They always throw up their arms in the classic Roman salute to vote more billions to commit mass murder.

I'm quite sure you don't need a car to break a glass door.

Why is everyone here implying that floor models have significantly less value? They surely don't.

They'll be fenced on Craigslist as used hardware just as well as you could with any other stolen item.

You seem to know a lot about "used hardware". Do you happen to have a "used" rMBP for sale?

I wonder if wifi was automatically used during the theft...

If the store was scoped out prior to the theft, the thieves may have connected with Apple's store's wifi. At that time of night, anything which automatically connected to wifi would likely be one of the thieves iPhones...

Anyone know if Apple turns off wifi at night?

Hi there

i think that apple products are better than samsung but it is too expensive. Now Samsung has many products with a lot of differrent costs that are suitable for clients
