High speed highway robbery: 125 iPads, four iPad minis, 30 iPhones and two Apple keyboards were stolen from the back of a Czech truck somewhere on the A44 near Dortmund earlier this week. The driver was unaware of the theft until he stopped at Kassel. Such robberies always raise eyebrows but at least fifty cases have been reported in this part of Germany since November 2012. The picture above is a screen grab from a film released by Romanian police in June 2012. Parcel services are most commonly targeted.
