    They could have at least waited for the iPhone 5 to be on shelves, would have fetched more than some iPods.

    True.  Drug abuse turns normal people into strange versions of themselves sometimes.

    They are just fucking idiots. Retina MacBook Pro's, Mac Pros, iMacs. If i were to rob an Apple store those are the things I would take. What idiots.

    I believe this is what Edgar Allen Poe referred to as "The Imp of the Perverse."

    I too am trying to figure out why they would grab iPhones instead of Macbook Pros and iMacs and such. Would have at least made more money if they would have gotten away with it.

    It's a cost factor.  The cost of HD cameras (good ones) is still way higher than SD.  It's not just storage, but the whole package.  But yes, if you want to actually identify someone you should spend the dollars to get HD.  

    Is cost really a factor for Apple though?

    Maybe they did have HD cameras that were sold and replaced by Browett.

    Howard, however, reportedly failed to repair the flat tires on his vehicle, and the BMW was abandoned about a mile from the Temecula Apple Store.


    Now the can of fix-a-flat was stolen. LOL



    Why bother trying to get it out of the store at all.




    Looks like they grabbed six or so iPhones/iPod's and four or so iPads.


    Probably wanted them to swap for crack.

    The store is will be closed for a while. So, in addition to the repairs, you need to include lost sales, lost work for the employees and rent for a space Apple can't use.

    I cleaned up the video, it looks even more dramatic when it's un-squashed.

    Why didn't they wait for the iPhone 5s?

    Good point.

    But i bet the store is up and running tomorrow.

    There is no way that Apple retail would allow a store to not be ready for the launch of the iPhone five

    I don't understand why Apple doesn't have special iDevices at the Apple stores with ROM in instead of flash memory. When the retards who steal them try to sync them with iTunes, they won't be able to, and no amount of Jailbreaking would help either.

    Also the crooks wouldn't be able able to turn off find my iDevice either.
