Anyone stupid enough to leave a new laptop in a car, deserves to have it stolen.

Why should Apple track stolen Apple computers? Does Sony or Toshiba track stolen TVs or Blu-ray players? I have no idea why people think Apple should track this stuff. They track the computers warantee info as they may have to service it and need to know if it's in warantee and that's it. That's all the info they need to service it.

I totally agree! Sounds like the lawyer has time on his hands and bills to pay.
With Apple at the top of the world now, everyone wants to cash in on this company.

Yes, lets have more government in private business affairs. Government registration of the 100s of millions of Apple products shouldn't run the tax payer more than two million dollars...

Nice, you resort to calling people thieves! I don't remember calling you names or questioning your morality!

I think you owe me an apology.

Pawn shops have to check serial numbers on what they pawn, buy, and sell. No good reason for retailers and manufacturers not to protect their customers. It can easily be made much more difficult for criminals to conduct their business.
Everything has serial #'s.

Retailers aren't pawnshops! Retailers and companies aren't police! Pawnshops have security measures and occasionally a bouncer for reasons. Police are there for reporting stolen items to.

If you really want to secure and Safeguard a laptop there is hardware and software for that.

Police keep their lists of stolen product serial numbers. A little cooperation with police and business easy to set up if the will is there. Seems to be lacking.
Why are we picking on Apple products. They are no more important than my Sony TV, or my Panasonic microwave! If you are going to do it for one product, why not all?

Because it's ridiculous, costly and Not their job.

Agree with you 100%.

We have gone through that discussion before and there was also a ery clear and logical position on that by Apple.

I remember part of the issue was how does Apple know that a product is really stolen and wasn't sold to someone and then reported stolen by the seller.
The whole thing is a police issue - period.

As a 'Premium' product Apple, I think as a courtesy to it's customers should have a database of stolen items. With a police report number, Apple could refer the incident to the police, and email the registered owner.

Let's face it, iPods especially are hot items for theft, & it would enhance Apple's rep to be more proactive in this regard.


I don't think Apple's bottom line would notice the added expense.
