Microsoft’s Mountain View campus is where all the magic happens when it comes to primary research and design. This means the campus is like an Aladdin’s cave when it comes to the company’s new high end products with the Surface tablet and Windows 8-based laptops stored here.
However, according to police investigating the robbery that took place last week, the looters completely ignored the goodies on offer and instead stole two iPad 2s and two iPad 3s.
The thieves appeared to have been taken in by the shiny Apple gadgets, or, as Angela E. Ruggiero, the author who broke the story at the Daily Post, a Palo Alto local newspaper, suggests they may have presumed that Apple’s products were worth more when they came to sell them on.
However, the paper also points out that there were no signs of forced entry, on the campus, where staff use key cards to access the building, suggesting that perhaps it was an inside job by a Microsoft employee sick of the company’s products.
