    The video in the link is ridiculous. To paraphrase the story:

    These braniacs ram a BMW into an Apple Store to rob it. The guy ignores the pricey Macbooks, and loads up on iPhones and iPads. Meanwhile, the driver is having trouble backing his way back out of the glass front of the store, so he is destroying the Beemer -- doing way more damage than a bunch of soon-to-be obsolete iPhones are going to net with the introduction of the iPhone 5 that day. Apple announced they were dropping the current model's price to $99.

    They finally get away, but with two flat tires and their license plate left behind at the scene. Police nab a suspect -- he might have been on his way back to try to get the license plate. He has the keys to the car in his pocket. He had abandoned the car after a can of Fix-aFlat had failed to fix one of the flat tires.

    Of course the suspect is pleading not guilty.
