Don’t Steal Computers From People Who Know How to Use Computers [VIDEO]

mark bao Dont Steal Computers From People Who Know How to Use Computers [VIDEO]

Mark Bao

Two months ago, a thief stole a Macbook Air from Mark Bao, the 18-year old serial entrepreneur (he’s CEO of at least six companies), creator of the viral threewords.me site, and weekend New Yorker. On Friday, he discovered he could remotely access the browser history on the machine. Lulz ensue! “Wow. The first thing that MacBook thieves do REALLY IS take pictures on Photo Booth. I didn’t think they were that dumb!” he tweeted. Turns out the thief did more than take pictures–he took a video of himself dancing to a version of “Rubber Band Man” Tyga’s “Make It Rain.”

Mr. Bao also attained access to the thief’s Facebook page; he lives a few blocks from Mr. Bao’s dorm at Bentley University in Waltham, Mass. Mr. Bao plans to report the thief to the campus police when he gets back from spring break, but not before some more public humiliation. “I’m too busy to stage any serious lulz, but don’t worry… lulz will certainly happen,” he tweeted.

Mr. Bao was able to get access to his Safari history using the cloud backup service Backblaze.

        Well, before you go getting technical, understand that in this usage, “your” should be “you’re”, and “prejudice” should be “prejudiced”.

        bwcause 90 percent of them are lazy free loaders who are milking the slave angle for all they canm hell even the president is still living in government housing … u must love letting them borrow your shit because your super sensitive

      13. Internet Justice says:

        Huh. Where did you get that 90 percent figure? Seems, I don’t know, a bit off to me. But since we’re throwing out numbers here, I guess I’ll just say that 90 percent of [ insert whatever the hell you are] are racist bigots that release their anger on internet stories because they have nothing better to do.

        Go science.

      14. shell says:

        I think all racist people need to live on an island far far away with no way of getting off.  The guy that stole the computor had nothing to do with racism…PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
        And I agree with you Internet Justice….

    The guy’s getting what he deserves. I had my laptop stolen and I lost more than just a computer, I lost years worth of pictures, videos, school assignments, research data (I was a student working in a lab at the time), and creative writing pieces I was working on. I was more pissed off about the intangibles that I had lost that I would have been fine with losing the computer if I could have just gotten all that other stuff back. Alas, this did not happen and I was just left to pick up the pieces and move on. I hope Mark seriously messes with this guy to make sure he not only never tries this again, but serves as a warning to other would-be douchebags out there.

        Actually I did, but my external HD was in the laptop bag. Now I keep an external at my house and I backup my data monthly. Once bitten, twice shy.

      2. Steven says:

         That is the right thing to do. Please make sure your laptop and external HD are not at the same place at any given time. In short make sure you have two backup HDs one at the office and one at home. Incase ur house goes up in flames.

    3. TheAnnonmousPosterGuy says:

      HELL YES!

    4. Eve1 says:

      what are u saying the guy admitted he did not take it on purpose it was left there and he gave back everything the laptop was in his hands for a week and it was not in a laptop bag,  its kind of weird he gave that explanation but he should give him a slack since he returned everything even the money. 

      1. ePerson says:

        I think you mixed the two articles up.  Sean Power’s laptop was accidentally left at a bar and returned after a week. This article is about Mark Bao, whose laptop was actually stolen.

      2. Vicki4real2003 says:

         He only returned it because he knew he got caught He could of Gave it to the police did he? noooo he did not would i cut the guy some slack oh heck no…

      3. Dummy says:

         I think you are confusing this with the other story.

      4. Luya99 says:

        did not take it on purpose? as oppose to what? he took it by accident?. yeah he gave it back… after a week!!!  and thats because he got caught! why did it take a week to return it and why did he take it in the first place?  you’re so naive  

    5. Notanidiot says:

       put that shit on PAPER!

    1. Tiajen2000 says:

      so buying a stolen computer is ok? Either way, the guy is getting EXACTLY what he deserves.

      1. Unless of course, he had no idea it was stolen. Unlikely, but it happens.

  16. Mike says:

    This is a fictitious publicity stunt for our ‘serial entrepreneur’…This did NOT happen. It’s just a plausible; “yeah, I could see that happening moment/situation…” trying to be inserted into our mind. Creation of some cool and edgy anecdote that is meant to stick in the back of the mind and help plug website or an appeal to an advertisement. Much like Tim Roths character in Reservoir Dogs doing an ad lib to gain the trust of the hoodlums he’s trying to infiltrate. Never happened. This is going on ALL THE TIME these days. Example #2: Kinda like that hot blonde that went viral on the Internet who ‘left’ her camera in the hotel with a bunch of nude photos of herself…which as we all found out was just a plug for her modeling career. An Age Of The Internet Social Networking Publicity Stunt. I call bullsh*t all the way around…

  17. Thinwhiteduke says:

    Hey, Peter- My laptop was stolen by a skinny little white guy! Fucking crackers! Always stealing other people’s shit- laptops, music, elections, entire countries- Peter is a funny name for a pussy.

  18. Stevesmith says:

    To be factual. Turn on your local news tonight and see who is arrested for being a criminal, or doing stupid shit. Next go look at the census and see % of the population versus % or crime. Some will find excuses such as socioeconomic standing; but at the end of the day it’s about personal choice and blacks in America have chosen to be criminals.
    Think it’s still racist go watch MTV or listen to their criminal behavior glorified in music; that is unless it’s some misogynistic lyric about makin it rain for their bitches.

    1. Random says:

      You know I followed your logic until you labeled ALL BLACKS as criminals. As an African American who has no crime record to date, I can personally say that your statement that “blacks in America have chosen to be criminals” is ficticious and..well..f*cking retarded.

      Also, by your logic, I should assume that all [insert your race] are idiotic and post stupid racist remarks with census data you can’t be bothered to actually link to.

      Thank god for internet anonymity.

    2. Cri-na says:

      Factual? Stop being ignorant for every crime a black, in your theory, has made there are as many whites but they get less time or less consequent for there actions. T.v. Are fueled by ratings and as you must well know people love to watch it happen to the other guy. Yes socialism dose play a part in Americas culture. From being a slave to being a president non-blacks have come a long way. Sometime we forget our past and how we got here and the struggle it took against.people who.believe things like you.

      1. Stevesmith says:

        The Irish came here under endentured servitud; they had been traded on the land as property by the royalty in the UK. Look it up the Irish were very similar to slaves. Why are our prisons not filled then with Irish. This by using your slavery existed at one point logic. By your logic people would be better off in Africa because there is noooo ethnic conflict there, Darfur, Rwanda, Sierra Leone. For that matter the Jewish were forced to build the pyramids they then should use this as an excuse to behave in a socially unacceptable manner.

      2. ali 97 says:

        Israel?

      3. BecauseI'mIrish says:

        The Irishman (my heritage), the Jewish man, any other white male and an African American can all walk down the street together all wearing the same outfit. If one of them breaks a window who will passers by be most likely to describe? The one that appears most different. We label things and people that are most unlike us to be inferior to us.

      4. Stereotype=BS says:

         Chances are it was the black man. Stereotypes come from statistics, not thin air. That is the thing. Prisons are full of blacks because blacks commit most of the crime, not because of some radical stereotype that all judges and juries put innocent blacks away nor does it have to do with poverty.

        I have an idea, lets have 12 kis and no job then blame “the system” when I kill someone for scuffing my pumas.

      5. Xxxsteviebeexxx says:

         the pyramids were built by Egyptians not jews. and they weren’t slaves  they were payed workers. but i do get what your saying

      Maybe blacks would steal if whites hadn’t raped their mothers, chain them together and took everything away from them including their dignity. Maybe if the american system wasn’t the way it was, more whites would have been in jail than blacks.

  19. Baann410 says:

    of course he’s black. Coulda told you that

    1. Cri-na says:

      That is kinda a racist statement. Skin color is nothing to do with this guys level of stupidity. But that is just like me stating that it was the white side in him that made him think that he can just take whatever he wants from anybody he wants.
      Stupid comes in all shapes and colors. This guy is a good example of that.

      1. Rubsgbq says:

  25. Mudmx1 says:

    actually… the majority of convictions go to black males… but the majority of accusations go to white males between the ages of 15 and 25…. just because whites can afford better lawyers doesn’t mean they commit less crime…. statistically white people DO get harsher sentences though, which adds a racist “they should have known better” kind of attitude toward it… food for thought…

    1. George says:

      Whites are 65% of the US population, while blacks are 13%. The statistic you used would vindicate your view if the two groups were numerically equal as percentages of the US population. Blacks are overrepresented tremendously in this type of crime and almost all others. Yes, I am a terrible racist for stating facts reported by the US Department of Justice.

    I am so tired of these so called “gangstas” that work at Mc Donald’s and live at home with their parents. Something tells me this clown has never, “made it rain” at a strip club.

    I’m reading the comments on this story and I’m like…REALLY?!! This is what people are gathering from this story?! For those, that chose to make this a racial based story and not about a kid taking the wrong computer; I think you should know, that the racial diversity of this nation isn’t going to change. There will always be people who don’t look like you in this country and planet , for that matter. Deal with it!! There are complete morons in every race, gender, and obviously age bracket; the best thing to learn from this story, is don’t steal…from ANYONE! Not, that’s typical of black people. I hope for your sake that it will not be a black person who will have to save the ignorance that you call a so-called life one day. Racial prejudice is so yesterday; get with the program geniuses!

    1. Kyleo8321 says:

      Do you really expect anyone to beleive that this “upstanding citizen” took the WRONG laptop? thats the most ridiculous thing ive ever heard. HE got himself a fresh new apple and did a little dancing to celebrate.

      1. Kyle8321 says:

        And its not prejudice if you can back up every “stereo type” with fact. do some research and have a look at what race has the highest percentage, by a longshot, in our jail system.

    2. Pnarucla says:

      you must be a friend of the person who STOLE it… you don’t just take the wrong laptop and continue to use it…. when you take the wrong laptop, you report it…

  41. Just Saying says:

    WTF is Mr. Bao doing? You don’t humiliate people — especially psychotic gangsters. Unless he wants to sleep with one eye open Bao should have reported this directly to the police. Very stupid of Mr. Bao. At least he could have censored the video.

    1. Elle Lovato says:

      Yeah, gangster… I bet that fake arrangement over the door was made by his crew. Mr. Bao probably invests in one of these back up companies and used this story as free publicity. Not what it seems… Just saying.

    1. Guest says:

      Yes, seriously. 

  48. Felix Chaos says:

    The article never even said anything about the man’s race. The video told it all, and the rest of the racist people assumed this as racist too. Go congregate somewhere else.

  49. msbpodcast says:

    You have to be pretty stupid to steal any kind of consumer computer or communication equipment.

    The thing can call home and send a picture or a video of whoever is in front of it, as well as giving away their location to the nearest WiFi or cell access point.

    In-car GPS systems must be the worst thing to steal.

    These things are useless without being able to read their position to the nearest foot. All they need is a WiFi call-home function and you can follow it right across the planet.

  50. Guest says:

    Everyone tries to blame it on the races…it’s not about if he’s black or white…he shouldn’t have stolen the laptop and I am glad he is humiliated by posting this on youtube and not taking it off! KUDOS to you! Smart thinking and SHAME ON YOU THIEF!

    1. Brittany says:

       that is a horrible thing to say…..you should never wish death on anyone. I know the kid is a thief but come on “I hope he dies in the near future” that’s a little harsh. This also goes for those three fools who liked this comment too

        Him dying would be too easy for him…. something should happen to him and/or someone he cares about dearly so he has to live with it the rest of his life….  where every time he see the mirror and/or visit some dear it reminds him of what he did….  24/7 the rest of his life, whichever life he’s got left….

  67. Gjones417 says:

    First of all that guy is a real stupid ass
    Secondly why can’t the police still arrest him??? 

  68.  It is ok to steal it in Grand Rapids, though.  My son had his stolen along with other valuable items and he traced the location of the laptop to another town.  He called the police (he had filed the theft report as it was a break in while he slept  so they probably were armed) and told them where it was….nothing was ever done, let alone recovered.

    Pack a few ounces of C4 into your laptop and remotely detonate.  Theives w/o hands don’t normally thrive.

  72. Noirgf says:

    What a colossal ass.  Personal computers and cell phones have their own  karma and should never be stolen. They are sacred to their owners. The thief  got his dues.

  73. Ryanmillay says:

    Nice Job Mark!!!! I’ve been dyin’ to catch a thief…. Thanks for doin it for me! This guy’s, A FRIGGIN’ DORK.  How do we trace a “Windows” laptop? Hey, Get an external harddrive and upload your files everyday! Even a 16 gig flashdrive/card would be even easier. DON’T even turn your back on your pencil these days.

  77. Carecreature says:

    I sit reading the stuff you all are writing on here about the incident and then it turns into a racist thing …   The guy didnt steal his computor because of his race.  He stole it because he is a thief.  Now I read percentages on what race is steals the most….I live in an area of about 36,000 people,  99% of the theives in this area are white…and that is a fact….

    1. Boss Sniper says:

      And that is why According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics from 2000 to 2008 the rate of prevalence of incarceration for blacks declined to 3,161 per 100,000 and the white rate slightly increase to 487 per 100,000.  read into your shit before speaking about it but thanks for playingAccording to the Bureau of Justice Statistics from 2000 to 2008 the rate of prevalence of incarceration for blacks declined to 3,161 per 100,000 and the white rate slightly increase to 487 per 100,000.  read into your shit before speaking about it but thanks for playing

    stupid boneheads thieves.. –__– 

  80. Alaskagirl56 says:

    Oh’ but it’s ok to steal them from the people who don’t know to much on how to use them?  I know, i’m one of them. So what is your chances of finding one when a person that knows how to fix them and knows everything on how to use them? My guess would be, slim to none!

  81. Jesse_poll says:

    All over I watch people leave things unattended thinking it will be okay. That may be true 9 out of 10 times, but, that 10th time is why I don’t ever leave anything for even a second unattended. If I do and it gets stolen, am I not just as responsible or irresponsible as the person who stole it. Am I not to blame for my property getting stolen. the answer is yes. We live in a world that wants to blame everything on the other guy. There was another video of a laptop stolen in a NYC bar. Why would you take a laptop into a bar and not have it attached to your shoulder all the time? I don’t get it. to your shoulder all the time? I don’t get it.

  82. www.eBestPhoto.com/ says:

    omg wow the video lol… the thought came across but what if this is just the greatest ploy ever where they just claim its stolen for the hype – but on second thoughts, that would just be asinine.

  84. Brainiac337 says:

    Why we don’t know of successful robberies? Cause the robber was so skilled and smart,he didn’t do what this idiot did.

  85. correction: he’s dancing to “Make it Rain” by Travis Porter lol its cool how you write an article about him loosing and then finding his laptop but at lease get the name of the song right lol

  95. Annoyed By Stupidity says:

     Yep!  That’s what a dumb shit loser looks like.  Idiots like this have to steel.  They have no moral compass and are too stupid to actually be able to make a living.  It won’t be long before he’ll be living off of us tax payers while incarcerated and “in the end,” getting all the free sex he could ever wish for.

    So “all Blacks can dance” is just another stereotypical myth? 

  98. Force10 says:

    Hay Brittany No one said they wanted anyone to die just to blow their hands off with a bit of C-4… I’m sure you just think this person needs love and attention because of his upbringing, and poor circumstances…..NOT!!!! he is a thief I wonder what you would think when he steals from you ??!?

  120. guru says:

    i guess none of you commentators are christian, else you would have heard of this saying ” to err is human, to forgive is divine”

    to drop the charges make the thief agrees to pay to any charity organisation an equivalent amount of the laptop price and agree to certain amount of time doing charity work.
