At least they could have stolen something worthwhile. By the time these dummies sell them, they will be obsolete or in need or a new 13 pin connector.

Maybe the thieves better open them up... Could have been a bunch of mirrors like the woman from Texas bought from a dude at a gas station...

Ummm. Not to be negative here, but... am I the only one who thought it was an odd disconnect to say a pallette of ipads was stolen off the tarmac with a forklift via an inside job, ....so here are a few tips to protect your device... eg don't leave it lying around in an open space.

Actually, the article is about keeping mobile devices secure. I simply used the JFK heist as a lede.

Report Stolen Gear to AT&T? What a joke. The IMEI number is added to the database only if you pay for the insurance plan. Otherwise reporting a stolen phone is useless, the IMEI will remain active, they'll watch for it on their network but without paying for that extra insurance they'll do nothing about it. I go through this everyday with my clients and it wont hit the database without first having bought the insurance. Even then, getting a hardware unlock is only $25...once any phone is unlocked it can be used on any network regardless of IMEI in a database.

1.5 million according to Apple and their snob followers. $720,000 in equivalent specs by any other manufacturer.

When the stolen mini's get turn on and connect via internet to the mother ship, the evil empire will lock on to gps location and zap all those devices. They know your serial number.
