Apple employee store theft

More thefts have been reported at Apple's Cupertino campus, as the employee store reported a third theft of nearly $5,000 worth of merchandise from the sales floor. The San Jose Mercury News reports that the "fleecing at the Apple corporate store continued Monday with the theft of two more iPods and 10 software packages from the employee store inside the headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino. The total estimated value of the latest theft was approximately $4,688, on top of the 11 music players previously reported stolen from the company's Cupertino offices." The report says that nine black 80GB iPods -- worth just over $3,000 -- were reported stolen from the Apple employee store over the weekend as well and that two iPod nanos were reported missing in a shipment from Elk Grove that arrived at the company's headquarters on Oct. 17. "The shipping boxes that should have contained the two missing silver nanos were crushed," according to the report. There are no suspects in the case.

    ...theft of the OS X interface from the Apple campus in Cupertino was reported as well. The suspect, a Mr. B. Gates, resides in Redmond, WA.

    Apple CEO Steve Jobs has declined prosecution, and issued a press release stating, 'the thief probably has no idea what to do with it anyway.'

    Mac is really back!

    I guess nobody feels like stealing Dells. A true sigh that Apple gear is hot!

    re: theft

    The employee store fronts on the main front parking lot at the 1 Infinite Loop Apple site.

    It's been open to visitors for a long time, although you can't buy Apple gear without an employee badge.

    Still, one hopes that Apple employees aren't the thieves.
