Hehehe... or how about "Say Hello to Prison."Originally posted by dotcomlarry
Perhaps they should install steel doors that drop down in front of the windows and doors the instant the windows smash... with the Apple logo on them, and underneath the logo say, "Hi."

somebody must need the power of the g4 in order to steal it, when was the last time you heard of a gateway country being robbed, oh well that just goes to show you the appeal of apple.
btw, who here has NOT gotten free software from an Apple Store via their ipod?Originally posted by BongHits
in new york, im sure apple's are HUGE since its a very style concious city...imagine the profits to be had selling macs below cost, at a 100% profit... i cant imagine anyone stealin a large shipment for personal uses...and yes apple needs better security, if i weren't such a nice person i could easily grab a TiBook and disappear into the crowded mall.

Lots of Apple stores have been robbed.. The one in phoenix AZ was robbed twice. The one in SoHo was just the worst of the robberies.
Donald Trump once said that there's no such thing as bad publicity. Afterall, they didn't waste their time robbing a PC store, even though theoretically they would have an easier time selling them. Maybe street-smart New Yorkers will perk up their ears at the Mac now...Originally posted by barkmonster
I know it would be pushing it to say that they'd make the money back from the robbery in extra sales, surely insurance plus the fact new customers might come to the stores out of curiousity and buy something could be seen as a positive thing for apple.
really untraceable?Originally posted by drastik
If you are going to sell stolen computers, the best way to go is ebay, really untracable if you know what your doing.
Think about it, a five year old mac on ebay is worth around $900. A five yoear old PC is worth about $50. Macs hold thier value, way more than PCs do.
