Laptop Thefts Continue in Hartley

Some worrisome news: after the laptop theft in Theta yesterday, multiple tipsters report that two laptops, an iPad and several credit cards were stolen from Hartley 8, Suite A, earlier tonight. Soon after, a Hartley RA sent out an email to her residents confirming that three rooms were robbed. Another tipster spotted uniformed NYPD officers leaving a Hartley elevator with a strange laptop-esque device, possibly a LoJack tracker. Keep your doors locked, people. If you see something, say something.

    @RC Y’all should install the software called PCPhoneHome, which is provided for free by CUIT. It runs invisibly in the background and if a laptop with PCPhoneHome installed is stolen Public Safety and the cops can track its location and get it back for you. http://www.columbia.edu/acis/software/pcphonehome/

    @Daytime tv talk show Somebody leave their door cracked open, so when the thief walks in you can pounce their ass. Then we’ll know who done it

    @Hmm Perhaps this is the 9/11 anniversary plot everyone’s talking about.

    @Anonymous You probably shouldn’t use that last sentence, Bwog. MTA is already getting sued by an anti-child molestation group for using it.

      @Anonymous Just curious about the case you referred to, could you please provide some links or key word (more than the ones here) of the accusation? Thanks!

      @Anonymous Actually, the slogan was developed by an ad agency specifically for the MTA, and the MTA routinely grants permission for other groups to use it. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/11/nyregion/11slogan.html
