Application security programs and practises

Thieves made away with $1.7m worth of RIM BlackBerry PlayBook tablets last week in Chesterfield, Indiana.

The 7in tablets were being taken to Ontario, Canada from a warehouse and distribution facility in Plainfield, Indiana, local police said.

The 22 pallets of kit were in the back of a lorry owned by Brightpoint, a company that provides logistics services to the wireless industry.

At Chesterfield, the truck's driver decided to take a brief break from the road. But when he returned to his vehicle an hour later, it was gone, local paper The Herald Bulletin reports.

Local cops said Brightpoint had confirmed that the truck lacked tracking tech. They also said the matter had been referred to the FBI while their own investigation continues. ®
