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.
The burglars set off motion detectors at 4:44 AM, but because they didn’t go through the door, whoever responded – the article doesn’t say – didn’t see anything amiss and reset the alarm. Police didn’t arrive until 8:00 AM. As in all Apple Stores, the repair area and stockroom is hidden from view by a wall.
