This weekend marked a milestone in both Apple and Brooklyn history: The first time an iPad was reported snatched in the borough. The heist went down in Fort Greene, reports the Brooklyn Paper. Details: "The 23-year-old victim told police that he was playing on the revolutionary tablet computer near the corner of Park and Waverly avenues at 7:45 pm when someone ran up behind him and snatched the device out of his hand. The thief was last seen running down Park Avenue toward Clinton Street, obviously looking forward to checking out his new toy." Obviously! {BP]
