I agree not to flash your fancy iDevices in the public and it's a good reminder but hey - Why was there a person recording that guy in the first place? How odd?!

The same thing just happened to me in Paris. I had an iPhone 4S and playing angry birds, and exactly when the doors were closing, a black guy just took the iPhone from my hands. I officially hate criminals!!!
