Meet the world’s worst iPad thieves: Dillian Thompson (20) and Dorian Walker-Gaines (22). From “the money team.”
Houston police arrested these two geniuses after they uploaded a celebratory selfie video from Burger King to flaunt the cash they stole, along with an iPad, laptop and a couple other items left in someone’s unlocked car. The duo took a number of selfies and even uploaded a video to Facebook showing the $5,000 in C-notes they’d just stolen.
“This, my good people, is what we get from a good night’s hustle,” Dillian says in the video, completely oblivious to the wonders of iCloud and the felony theft charges that are about to follow.
We’re starting to hear reports that people who preordered the iPad Mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular are having their shipping notifications updated, alerting them of a November 21 November 16 delivery date, with shipping to start in the next five business days.
The Apple Store official preorder page still says that the iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular will become available for shipping in mid-November, so these reports would seem to line up with Apple’s own promises on the matter. We’ll let you know when we hear more.
Update: Some of our readers are reporting delivery dates starting next Friday, the 16th:
If true, this would line up with our prediction that iTunes 11 will ship by the 16th. The iPad mini currently does not report as anything besides a regular iPad when plugged into iTunes, which isn’t very Apple-like: it makes sense that a new version of iTunes directly supporting the iPad mini would ship soon.
