EGADS... in this day of cameras everywhere, Khan's didn't have them ? Nor any burg. alarm ??

Oh well, that's what insurance is for.

Oh, says the Insurance Co. "Khan's didn't take security steps.. sorry, no payout."

OUCH

That's like stealing from all of our children. Shame on you! If you took advantage of all the free classes that Khan has to offer, you wouldn't feel the need to steal. You'd be smart and able earn a good income.

Change your ways! Life doesn't have to be like this for you. You are only cheating yourself in the long run. Khan is FREE and would help you get an education to support yourself. Please start your new life by returning what you took.

1. Good luck unloading 33 Apples on Craigslist (especially since they are probably all the same model number).

2. The Googleplex has cameras all over the place, doesn't it?

3. $40,000 divided by 33... Apples are expensive!

Yeah. First of all that's really disgusting story. Second, I wonder what the security guys were doing while burglars were on.

Wow, i don't think someone would just plan to steal 33 Computers in a development office when you can just go to a warehouse. I think it's the information on them that was planned to be taken.

I don't think someone would steal 33 computers to have informations they could have by hacking, the data about users is not in their hard disk, it's in their cloud. There are probably nothing interesting in their hard drive, and if they are looking for Khan Academy secret, oh well, maybe they want to learn how to make awesome courses.
