I'm rooting for Ocean's 11 over here.

Get your wife back from Tim Cook, Danny Ocean! He totally stole Tess from you while you were in jail!

Sounds like somebody was pretty well organized or security still sucks there. 1 or the other.

This. But how the f*** can someone get through airport security and manage to do this? Nice going, JFK airport security.

Security had to have tipped them off and turned their back for a nice little payday. Down the road they will be killed to make sure he/she doesnt talk.
Has nobody seen Goodfellas?

Someone got lucky! Their luck ought to run out... eventually.
Just follow the black market, after all what are they going to do with all those pads by themselves.

You sell them in bulk to people who sell them, like big time drug pushers sell a kilo or more to a drug dealer. With bunches all spread out around the world it's impossible to keep track or even tell when something is fishy.

well fortunately for the theives the Ipad mini's are 23% thinner and 53% lighter so they should fit nicely in their van LOL, ironic isn't it that the only people benefiting from smaller thinner devices are the people stealing it. all things aside apple robberies have been quite frequent as of late i wonder how it will end if it does.
