Teen Run Over and Killed as Thieves Steal His iPad




Marcos Vincente Arenas, a 15 year old Las Vegas teen, was run over and killed by a SUV while trying to prevent thieves from stealing his iPad, reports the Las Vegas Sun.

Investigators determined Arenas was walking on the south side of Charleston Boulevard carrying the iPad when a white vehicle, believed to be a Ford Explorer or Expedition manufactured between 2008 and 2010, stopped and a man exited the passenger side of the vehicle.

The man attempted to steal the iPad and started to drag the teen, who was trying to hold on to the device, police said. Arenas was dragged to the vehicle, and the suspect got back into the SUV with the teen still grasping at the tablet or somehow being held by the suspect, according to a Metro news release.

As the driver fled the scene, Arenas reportedly fell and was struck by the vehicle. He died at University Medical Center from his injuries.

The suspect who grabbed the iPad was described as a white male in his late 20s, about 6 feet tall and weighing 180-200 pounds. He has short slicked back blonde hair which was shaved on the sides and a neatly trimmed beard. At the time he was wearing blue jeans and a white tank top.

The driver of the vehicle was a black male in his mid 20s, medium build, with a fade haircut. He may have tattoos on both arms and was last seen wearing a black shirt and possibly a long chain with a pendant.

Below are photos of what Metro Police describe as a "person of interest and a vehicle of interest" in the case.

“There has got to be people who saw stuff, and we want those people to come forward,” Metro spokesman Bill Cassell said.









This is a very sad ending to a growing problem. NYC has created a special task force in the NYPD to address the growing theft of Apple devices. Please, we ask everyone "Just let them go, the device isn't worth your life!".

Excellent Apple TV/iPanel Concept Video




Check out this excellent concept video by Sam Beckett that details how an Apple television might work.

The overall idea of the concept demonstrates how an iPad or iPad Mini could be paired, (via bluetooth) to an Apple TV set-top box or TV screen panel. User input would either be by multitouch (on the tablet), or with Siri voice commands.

The video talks through how interacting with the television would work. Take a look below.
