    NYPD forms dedicated team to catch thieves who steal iPhones and iPads
    The theft of Apple devices is so rampant in New York that a team of cops has been assigned to work with the tech giant to get the stolen gadgets back, The Post has learned.
    Every time an Apple device is stolen, detectives attempt to get tracking numbers from the victim or online records.
    That number, known as the International Mobile Station Equipment Identity, is then shared with the officers in Police Headquarters who pass it on to Apple.
    The California-based company then informs the NYPD of the device's current location -- and it can track it even if it was reregistered with a different wireless provider.

    The integration of big business and government is complete and the right to privacy is long gone. Freedom is long gone but what do you expect? Ask anyone on the street if they would give up their job for real and true freedom and they will say no. Ask them if they'd give up a cheeseburger for real and true freedom and they might pause to think about it before saying no.
