$200 value, or $100 off registration ends soon
An opportunity to take the Apple Certification Exam for free -- or just get $100 off on registration -- is ending on October 27th. MacTech Conference 2010, being held on November 3-5 in Los Angeles, includes the exam (a $200 value) in their $899 advance registration fee. Participants who don't need the exam can simply take $100 off the price via a special offer.
Victims leaving computers unattended
A Los Angeles-area crime ring may be targeting Apple Store shoppers, says the Orange County sheriff's office. The county's district attorney's office has charged three people with burglary and grand theft, in association with 28 cases in which thieves broke into cars and stole computers from people who had been to Apple Stores. The Manhattan Beach Police say that an investigation is still underway into 15 cases tied to the Village Mall Apple Store, on Sepulveda Boulevard.
