Apple Store Security Breached in Seattle: Mission Impossible Edition

The Apple Store in Seattle's University Village mall suffered a security breach - through the roof! Thieves broke in and stole laptops that were left for repair, which will be a bummer for those who didn't heed Apple's advice to back up computers before service. One expects Apple's insurance will cover replacements for the poor Mac owners whose laptops were purloined.
