Another example of a litigation happy climate. It costs us all...

He should be forced to pay Apple's legal costs when it gets thrown out by the judge who wields common sense....

The case has already been settled. He received a $2,300 store credit from Apple and his legal costs of $345. That's cheap legal costs, he must of known a cheap lawyer.

Sure, but then every other business merchant will have to do the same, like banks (money is desirable), grocery stores (food is desireable), Home depot (nails are desireable)...

Do you have an article of clothing that can cover said valuables? Can valuables be kept with you? My wallet hypothetically has $5,000 in cash and I could easily conceal it in the glove compartment, but I'd take it with me.

C'mon people! Be responsible for yourself.

WHAT!?
How is that possible? How does one prove it wasn't stolen? Guess next time I'll buy an iMac, give it to a friend, then go back to Apple and claim it was stolen and have them give me an equivalent credit.

Well you would have to file a police report, go I dare you. Then the iMac you claimed as stolen well it may just be tracked back to you and your friend and/or the person you sold it to.

Crime does not pay in the end. karma is a bitch

This is B.S. Apple has no culpability or responsibility for the security of their products once sold. You can get mugged outside of Tiffany and it remains the same - it's a crime by criminals.

Is that the life you want to lead? To be a criminal? I don't think you do and I don't even know you. Like I said Karma is a bitch. What goes around comes around.
