World's Craziest Mac Crimes Caught On Camera
Wow, what perfect timing but a series of unfortunate events for the Apple Store in Pittsburgh:
As reported by Channel 4 TV in Pittsburgh:
Smash-and-grab at Pittsburgh Apple Store
"Thieves swiped about US$9,000 worth of Apple laptops at the company's retail store in Pittsburgh's Shadyside neighborhood, police said. "Surveillance video from Dec. 12 shows someone smashing through the glass front door at the store in the 5500 block of Walnut Street. A man is seen rushing to the back of the building while a woman grabs three laptops from a shelf. Both people then run outside. The entire episode takes just 19 seconds."
The reason I say perfect timing is because Jackwhispers has been preparing a story on the very topic of video surveillance on a Mac. I'll see what I can do to get it up for Christmas Eve.
