Comments: A PICKPOCKET’S TALE The spectacular thefts of Apollo Robbins.
We were just discussing this a few days ago while my daughter was acquiring her new iPhone 5.
The way most people walk around completely immersed in their little iPhone worlds, should make the pick pockets work easier than it has ever been.
Forget stealing the stupid phones. Their wallets are yours with no effort and no risk.

A few years ago, I was with the husband at a corporate event in Vegas. This guy was one of the entertainers, just walking around talking to small groups of people. He was absolutely amazing; somehow, he managed to get a woman's engagement ring off her finger and slip it on to a keyring that had been in a purse or a pocket, one of those spiral-type keyrings, all the while demonstrating something entirely different. It was as close to pure magic as I've ever seen.
