What is it with idiots and electronics today? First, some bone-headed German bargain hunters got swindled shopping for discount iPods. And now, down in Mexico, thieves are stealing hollow replica display case cell phones.
Employees at a Telefonica Movistar cell-phone store in Morelia, Mexico say they arrived Tuesday morning to find that the store had been broken into. An examination of the shop revealed the only items missing were hollow replica phones for display that are completely useless for making calls.
