Some Poor Bastards Stole $1.7 Million Worth Of PlayBooks a Truck Stop

Loved the last sentence of this news though. 'Personally, though, I think you've got to feel for the poor guys that stole the things. How the hell are a bunch of thieves going to get rid of 5,000 PlayBooks if RIM can't give them away?'

If they are able to sell it, RIM should take some tips from them :D

well the fact is that RIM can easily disable these devices remotely as they are likely to have IMEI numbers in records with them. smartphones that connect to the web are not the ones you would like to purchase if the are stolen.

But IMEI numbers can be changed right?
