That was Brando
True but he was also correct. DeNiro says it in Raging Bull as he's quoting the scene Brando did from On the Waterfront.
This was DeNiro's finest acting IMO. Great movie... really felt sad for that Jake LaMotta.. couldn't get out of his own way.
I have a Chinese friend whose father, a prominent professor and author, was executed in China many years ago. To add insult to injury, the next day, government agents showed up at the family residence and demanded payment for the bullet used in the execution.
What? Well, unless it was made of silver (out of necessity).
No it was like 5 cents. It was just an insult.
Side note: if anyone hasn't seen Goodfellas... Its a top 10 guy movie of all time.
It's Number 15 at IMDB (which doesn't take into account guy-ness).

I suspect these will wind up in china or southeast asia where they will bring in more than $1.5 Million. Apple has employees on the ground watching all of it's supplies like this. The shipping to China is so cheap now that it is probably cheaper and safer to let them get shipped here and send them back than it would be to steal it in China where you would face the death penalty or worse.
Forget about when will we find a bunch of Minis on Craig's List. When will we find a bunch of guys in freezer trucks and behind the wheel of a new Caddy?
In related news, exactly no Microsoft Surface tablets have been stolen since the device was released. Microsoft is reported to be considering offering would-be thieves a free Microsoft Zune and a free Microsoft Kin in exchange for stealing a Microsoft Surface tablet, but so far the Redmond giant has been unable to attract any criminals to their new device.

But you still have to connect it to iTunes, no? And if you plan on using any apps on it, I imagine that the serial # will be transmitted to Apple. At least that's how I thought it worked. Never paid it much mind to be honest.
"Barely 48 hours after this offer, employees at Microsoft headquarters were baffled by the sudden appearance of ten shipping crates in the parking lot at Redmond. When opened, the crates contained thousands of Microsoft Surface tablets. The serial numbers on these tablets were not slated to be used for years.
It seems that criminals have responded so poorly to the launch of the Surface that they have somehow manufactured extra tablets and returned them TO Microsoft."
The policy of charging the family for the bullet used to execute an "enemy of the state" was adopted by the Chinese from Soviet practice.
The Nazis may have done the same, but I'm not positive I recall that correctly.

Is it already on sale?
I suppose that question answers more than it asks, huh.
Does this mean that Scorsese will not be invited to appear in another commercial for Apple?
I coulda been somebody...instead of a bum.
... which is what I am, let's face it.
Apple knows all 3,600 IMEI / MEID numbers of the stolen minis (if they were LTE models.) Thus, they could blacklist them and prevent them from working on any carrier's network.
But not before they are set into Lost Mode by the Find my iPad feature of iOS 6. In Lost Mode, the rightful owner of each stolen iPad mini can set its passcode remotely. Or, in this case, Apple can set the passcode remotely. Soon after the stolen minis are turned on, they'll become unusable.
(And the thought of a low-speed forklift chase, through an airport, just seems so weird.)
