Microsoft Reports Its Apple iPads Stolen, No Microsoft Devices Missing

Posted January 5, 2013 at 8:16am by iClarified
Microsoft has reported the theft of five Apple iPads from its offices, according to the Daily Post.

The iPads were taken from three offices in Microsoft Building 5 on the campus at 1075 La Avenida St., according to Thompson. The theft was reported on Wednesday, said Thompson.

Microsoft reported that two iPad 2s and two iPad 3s with a combined value of more than $3,000 were taken sometime between Dec. 19 and Dec. 26 on the company's campus.

A police report also said a fifth tablet - described as an iPad 4, worth $729 - was taken as well.

Humorously, the article incorrectly believes the iPad 4 doesn't exist yet and suggests it might be a typo. Also, the Daily Post was keen to note that "No Microsoft products were reported stolen."

Gee you're missing the Point.

Maybe Apple should activate all product "Find Me" features upon leaving Tthe factory. That way an effort to arrest these thieves can be made. With arrests publicly reported on the news or whatever!. The feature then would be shut off when the end user registers it. If all devices where setup like this and a great chance of the thieves getting caught and jailed, maybe this crime can be reduced. Hell, if I knew that there was a good chance of being caught with stolen property, I would just find something easier to steal. I always see stories like this and wonder if the thieves are ever caught. Two cents... Cha-Ching... Gee

I'll be the one to ask the dumb question: What was Microsoft doing with iPads? The only thing I could see is for testing Microsoft apps on iOS.

No one except Apple fanatics are aware of the latest iPad4 release. Apple released as iPad with Retina Display - wtf? The iPad3 was with retina too... they so failed the launch.. even I who follows Apple News constantly took good while to realise that one has been released. Bad marketing and product launches from Apple is something that havent used to in while. Too many signs that the new Guy is not living to expectations.
