Gosh. Thousands of pounds! Expressed as a % of their cash reserve, what would you say - 0.000001 ? :D

You'd think that Apple would brick them. Manufacturers claim to be able to do that for stolen 'phones and Apple must have the necessary information in this case.

I imagine they will do. Plus these were display units, I believe they have software that bricks them automatically if they stray too far from home. Plus they can be tracked! I don't think the robbery was that well though through.
