Where great old Macs live again!

I found this article while monkeying around:

Danish Police Befuddled by 1G iMac


I thought you guys would enjoy the fact that police everywhere are just a bit thick when it comes to these things. Strange that we give them guns....

More details are here (from a link in the article above:

How the team at 'CSI: Denmark' stole my computer


Awesome conversation - soon to be found on "Cops Denmark"

  • 'We have your roommate's permission to confiscate her computer,' the Ichabod Crane one said.
  • 'Whatever,' I said. They had already assured me that we would get our laptops back that afternoon, so I figured the damage had already been done. Ichabod started rooting around under her desk.
  • 'Where's the computer?' he said.
  • 'On the desk. That's the computer,' I said.
  • 'No, the computer.'
  • 'That's the computer, dude.'
  • 'That's the screen.' He had lapsed into the voice you use when you explain to your 6-year-old cousin how the toaster works. 'I mean the compuuuuuter. Understand?'
  • 'Dude. That's the whole computer. Right there. The blue object the size of an armadillo.'
  • 'No. Where the daaaaata goes. The computer part.'
  • 'That is the computer. For Hell!' Danish swear words aren't as satisfying.
  • 'So that's the entire computer, right there?'
  • II was standing there with a look on my face like I was watching a dog walk on its hind legs.
  • 'New technology, huh?' he said.
  • I blew the dust off the keyboard and handed it to him. 'Do you mind if I check your badge again?'

Maybe we shouldn't let them have guns. Works for the British.

OMG! That is hysterical! Oh, to be a fly on that wall! Thanks for sharing that comical story. He obviously doesn't 'Think different.' Still looking for the big clunky box under the desk. All Macs are meant to be displayed, not hid under a desk!
