250 units of the Apple iPhone 5 are stolen in London; police suspect an inside job

Another robbery involving the Apple iPhone occurred last week in Murfreesboro, TN where a Best Buy store was robbed of more than $100,000 worth of equipment including the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad. The bad guys rammed the loading dock to break in. Unfortunately for this gang of thieves, they hit the store before the latest version of the phone was in stock. Yup, even for crooks, the Apple iPhone 5 is on back order.

You know what.. all these Iphone 5 robbery are beginning to get silly. It's not about the phone itself anymore. it's about the hype surrounding the phone. Apple is king when it comes to marketing the Iphone. And the thieves want a piece of that sweet juicy apple. it's all about the money. Nothing more.

for apple......this is more of "good" news than it is bad news......makes people think that the phone must be really amazing if people are willing to steal for it......when in reality you will just end up in jail behind a ......well.........you know, "non worthy" phone.... smh

I suspect all the stolen iPhone units will turn up in a certain office building in Mountain View, California. Of course, that's not as bad as Cupertino buying favorable verdicts in all the current patent war trials.

Hmmm, from what I calculated, it takes $42210 to make 252 iPhones ($167.50/1 piece) and they would earn $122790 from those 252 phones, woah they really know how to rip-off their customers, typical Apple :)
