through craigslist or ebay, the people on the buying end would not know they have been marked as stolen. or ipad is still desirable even without cell service. they work on wifi. apple said they do not comment on security issues and referred us to local authorities.if apple has some secret technology they could use to curb the snatch and run thieves they are not telling us at this time. one thing is as clear as their all glass store fronts... as long as apple keeps the friendly walk in and play store set up without armed guards or some other deterrent these stores will likely continue to be easy targets for thieves.in burlingame gs kron 4 news.
