    Those are only there to trigger an alarm, they come off fairly easily (as I unfortunately found out). I was in the 5th Ave. store, picked up a docked 3Gs, and the glue on the end of the cable just sort of melted off. I tapped a concierge on the back, he gave me a filthy look and had security deactivate the deafening alarm. Basically everyone in the store started staring at me for the remaining time I was in there.

    haha I was looking for a place to start this thread when I saw this. $50,000 in 30 sec. DAAAAAMN! Another link (video quality pretty good) http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local-beat/Apple-Store-Robbed-in-30-Seconds-56776907.html

    and I agree with murphmanny.... kinda cool to watch! Yeah yeah they broke the law blah blah blah - doubt they'll get caught if they don't do anything foolish.

    Those security cables are there for when store hours are open... like if you take it off, it'll sound a horrible, screeching sound. I'm sure you could jerk it out easily if you just threw a brick in the window!
