Smooth criminals steal $1.5 million worth of iPad minis
And just like that, two guys with a truck have easily managed to steal 3,600 iPad minis that had just arrived at JFK Airport. Somewhere right now, 3,600 Apple customers who couldn't sleep last night, knowing that their new gadgets are almost in their hands, will have to be quite disappointed because they will probably have to wait a bit more to get their iPads...

But such are the risks when you're ordering a hot commodity like the iPad mini nowadays. Apparently, the two guys who wanted to have tablets real bad, managed to load two pallets before an airport worker returned from dinner and started staring at them in a disapproving manner. The iPads have been estimated to cost about $1.5 million, which means that someone's going to have a big party tonight.

If you've been questioning whether the iPad mini will be able to repeat the success of its bigger sibling, here's a real-world proof that people can't wait to get their hands on it. They are literally coming to pick them straight from the airport!
