Thief Breaks Into Microsoft Research Office, Steals Only iPads

Thief Breaks Into Microsoft Research Office, Steals Only iPads

I love Microsoft. I really do. They’re a powerful company with many great products, and most Apple fans don’t give them the credit they deserve. But be that as it may, I could not help from chuckling a bit over a news report from The Daily Post, in which a thief broke in to Microsoft and apparently only stole their iPads. No Microsoft products were reported stolen.

From the report (via 9to5Mac, Joshua Anderson on Google+):

Police Sgt Sean Thompson said there are no suspects and no sign of forced entry. The iPads were taken from three offices in Microsoft Building 5 on the campus at 1075 La Avenida Street, according to Thompson, the theft was reported on Wednesday.

Thompson said, all employees have access to the building through their electronic key cards. The company told police it was closed for two days on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Thompson said he assumes Microsoft has some sort of video surveillance and will be reviewing who entered and exited the building during the time frame of the theft. So far police do not have any suspect information.

Now, in all fairness, it’s possible that there simply weren’t any Microsoft products lying around the campus. Perhaps iPads were the only things not bolted down to tables or locked up in cabinets. Or maybe the thief just didn’t want to bother with the Surface or a Windows Phone prototype.

Either way, it makes for a pretty amusing headline!
