With just six hours remaining before the world as we know it changes forever, it's about time we had an iPhone-related crime. While reporting live from the Apple store in midtown this morning, a Fox reporter had her microphone swiped. If you watch this footage closely, it looks like the thief was actually going for the iPhone. Rather, we should say, we'd have gone for the iPhone. Let's have this be a warning to all: if you're going to buy an iPhone today, also buy a printer to use as a decoy for exiting the store.
