A couple of thieves boosted US$1.5 million of iPads from JFK Airport in New York City, reports the “New York Post” (http://macte.ch/k8Z23).

The crooks struck before midnight on Monday and used one of the airport’s own forklifts to load two pallets of the tablet computers into a truck, according to law-enforcement sources. The “Post” adds that they might have gotten more, “but the thieves drove off leaving three more pallets of the Apple tablets behind after they were challenged by an airport worker returning from dinner.”
