Stealing iPads from a Baby

From the NY Daily News:

A sticky-fingered thief stole one of four iPads from the Children's section at the newly renovated branch of the Park Slope (Brooklyn NY) Library.

“It’s a shame that someone would go to such lengths to steal an iPad that was being used to engage and teach children in one of our libraries,” said BPL spokesman Jason Carey.

“Someone jimmied open the protective casing and took it out,” he said. “The casing was secured to the table.”

The Park Slope library is the first branch in the borough to have iPads only for the young.

The branch showed off the gizmos during its September 13th reopening of the renovated reading space which attracted the likes of legendary Brooklyn writer Pete Hamill and other Kings County bigwigs.

Stealing

People will steal anything. Especially expensive electronics that are touted as the salvation of the human race. It is my understanding that an iPad can be tracked if you have the correct apps/settings. Libraries may want to make sure these are on so the device can be found.
