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.

I'm sorry, but I don't think that a cell provider can deny use of a '95 Ferrari Testarossa based on a serial number...

I wonder what a phone chop-shop looks like.


Honestly, probably like a high school computer geek's room, only with the bins of electronic parts slightly smaller in scale than the piles of video cards, sound cards, and DIMMs that one would normally find.

Actually, reading the article, Bloomberg is calling for people to wear tight fitting clothes. +1 for Bloomberg.

Yes. It is called "your pocket." Keep your iPhone out of sight in your pocket and people are less likely to steal it.

Prey4reign: 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.

I don't click on articles from Consumerist anymore, but I will assume Bloomberg wrote a whiny letter to consumerist demanding a free iphone from Apple.
