The city maintains that if you take Apple out of the equation, major crime would be down instead of up by 3.3%. The police department logged 108,432 major crimes for the year, up from 104,948 in 2011.

The answer is clear, Apple is a criminal gateway and all Apple products must be banned.

That's what I like about my old Samsung flip phone. It's like a '72 pinto - no one would want to steal it.

KimNorth: "You know, some people are stealing and they're making a big deal out of it. Oh, they're stealing 20 pair of jeans or they're stealing i Phones. Who cares? They're not going to go too far with it. Maybe those people are so poor, some of the people who do that they're so poor they've never touched anything in their lives. Let them touch those things for once." -- Celine Dion

Gosh I know Celine was in New York last night singing in time square for New Years but what is it with her?

I've never touched Celine Dion's breasts in my life. Let me touch those things for once.

As someone who fixes and sells iPhones, the AT&T iPhone is by far the most valuable one to resell. It is the only one that is on the GSM network.

As someone who works for the carrier with the largest number of iphones let me break it down for you on how 90% off iphone theft works.

1. Because Iphones seem to carry a magical power that makes iphone users carrier them in their hands instead of in their pockets or purses, they are prone to leave them in taxis, on tables, at bars, and counters  when they are shopping.

2. If an iphone user does have it in their purse or pocket, the first thing they do is take it out and sit in in front of them on the table so everyone can see it.

3. Not willing to admit they "lost" it, they say it was stolen and have to file an insurance claim, and stolen sounds better than "i lost it".
