    It will be difficult to get rid of these if Apple tracks the serial numbers but I think they're destined for overseas.

    wow thats just crazy. That is alot of merchandise to move without getting caught though...... You could probably just place an ad on craigslist saying you have 1 iPad mini for sale..... They will probably get a barrage of emails and they can just sell to everyone who contacts them... All the while just saying you have 1 in the ad, in order to avoid any suspicion.

    JFK is a joke. so is LGA to be honest

    at this point, i only fly out of EWR which seems to be decent.
    i was down at PHL for a while which was honestly horrendous.

    The mini LTEs weren't in the US at that point. But wow that must suck for some people who pre-ordered Minis Wi-Fi.

    Goodfellas, I blame Henry Hill.

    Nice to see security has improved since those days though.

    It would've been priceless if they'd grabbed the pallets with nexus 7's inside.

    They would've got back to their hideout, opened the truck, and been like "OMFG, turn around."

    so would this push back people who have orders that have not yet shipped? say my mini is given to the person who was supposed to get one of those that were stolen since they were ahead of me on order line
