  1. They would have to actually break in after hours and take stock in the backroom inventory, not devices on the floor that would brick almost instantly. When will these morons get the memo that their thieving efforts are in vain?

    1. Negative Frank Day delivered to you once again by Frank, our local anonymous, Eeyore-like, forum parasite who delights generating meaningless and disparaging comments about anything related to Apple.

      Pretty poor effort this time, Frank. Try again next year.

  2. Corte Madera, is in Marin County, just north of the Rainbow tunnels on 101. I have relatives who live there. Nothing like Richmond, but maybe being near the Richmond Bridge and San Quentin gives off bad mojo.

  3. I got fired from a selling phones and tues assholes tried to say I was in on it your a bunch of faggotd botched I’m probably gonna murder my boss for accusing me
