    Apple will probably spend 2.5 million trying to get them back.

    They will be able to track the serial numbers.

    So if you don't get yours within the time that Apple told you, now you now know why, I guess :p

    Inside Job? No sh*t. I doubt there is a way I could get in their with a tractor unnoticed and through all the security. What were they doing anyway if they weren't in on it.

    Security guy 1: "Oh, a tractor is coming up to the security gates, should we let him in",

    Security Guy 2:"Ye why not, its just a tractor with a trailer on the back coming into an airport, could be a bomb but what the heck"

    Silly thieves! The iPad's are tracked via serial number over Wi-Fi and/or ESN number over LTE. They'll probably be found again, even if purchased on black market.

    Oh my.
    Yea and the thieves will not care what happens after they sell them on the black market. Though the people who are caught will probably be able give up the thieves.
