Apple Heist Empties Store in Just 31 Seconds

Smash and Grab Theft at Apple- Store …

Apple’s carefully thought-out notebook designs, as well as the clean lines of the iconic Apple Stores, make things very easy for smash-and-grab thieves.

 
 
 
Better. Faster. Easier. That is the slogan for Apple’s new operating system, OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. It could also refer to the heist that took place yesterday in Marlton, New Jersey. First, the uncluttered, open design of the store, unencumbered by ugly metal shutters, made it easy to smash the plate glass window with just one blow.

Next, the thieves signaled to the security guard that they had a gun and then took off along the long, clear tables of merchandise, the straight run allowing them to efficiently scoop MacBooks and iPods into their swag bags. The magsafe cords detached instantly, offering no resistance and leaving power sockets undamaged.

Finally, the stiff unibody shells meant that the villains could grab the notebooks one-handed from a corner with no flexing, and no risk to the internal circuitry, the tough aluminum bodies resisting the jostling clanks inside the sacks.

 

And so we see that it is true that Apple really does design for the end-user, with small efficiencies that all add up. Thanks to Apple, the scoundrels managed to load up their booty …
23 Macbook Pros, 14 iPhones and nine iPod Touchesin just 31 seconds.

 

As Steve Jobs might say, “Boom!”
Store employees should watch for anyone wanting to buy 23 mains adapters in the next few days.
