Two robbers on Columbia's campus apparently only fancy robbing iPhone users. If you have a BlackBerry or Droid, they'd rather take your cash instead. In three separate incidents on 114th Street the men repeatedly asked victims to fork over their iPhones. While the first victim handed them an iPhone, the second victim handed them a Droid. They apparently aren't Android fans and opted to take his cash instead. When the third victim stated she didn't have an iPhone, they refused to believe her and pushed her into a fence and searched her.
So far the suspects haven't been apprehended or identified but new security footage has been released that will hopefully help ID the two iPhone snatchers. One student apparently thinks it has to do with the high resale value of the iPhone -
"I think it speaks to the resale value of an iPhone,"
While the resale value of the iPhone may be higher than other devices, isn't it just easier to steal cash than go through the trouble of hacking these things on eBay or Craigslist?
