American Analog: Apple Picking

Officer Barry

I happened to peek into one of those mobile command vehicles on Market St and noticed a Pac-Man image made out of magnets. I asked the officer inside about it and he said “Yeah, the last guy put that up. I don’t know, it’s kind of stupid.” We got talking about the command center, which is full of REALLY old gear, iPhone apps, and the increase in iPhone and Apple thefts in the last few weeks. He said it’s such an easy way to make quick cash that thieves have started calling it “Apple Picking”.
