The Police Don’t Get Macs

While I was out to lunch this weekend an undesirable broke into my flat and stole my MacBook and original 8GB iPhone.

Fortunately, the hapless criminal was caught attempting to sell the laptop an hour later – store owners were tipped off by the fact that it was still on and syncing my contacts to MobileMe!

Besides damage to my front door and a little more mess than usual, all was fine.

What entertained me was a couple of comments from the police officers who came back to my flat with me:

Scene 1. Study – Day

Constable X
(Pointing to iMac G5)
Oh dear. He’s had your computer.

 Me
Um… no it’s right there.

Constable X
No, the actual computer is missing. There’s just a screen left.

Me
No, the computer IS the screen.

Constable X
Oh…

  Scene 2. Living Room – Day

Constable Y
(Writing witness statement)
So I now need to get some information about your phone and laptop. What type of laptop was it?

Me
A white Apple MacBook

Constable Y
What numbers did it have after it? Was it a G6, G7?

Me
(Confused)
No, just an Intel…

 Constable Y
And the phone… you said it was an Apple phone?

Me
Yes. Apple iPhone.

Constable Y
I phone?

Me
iPhone. All one word.

 Constable Y
Made by Apple?

Me
(Astounded)
Yes.

Fortunately I’ll be getting all my property back and I shouldn’t really mock the police officers who did a superb job. I just enjoy it when people are so clueless about Apple products. Especially when they’re talking about the iPhone!
