    I just watched the video and the news report. I understand that UPS has replaced the stolen iPad and the daughter will get her iPad mini for Christmas after all.

    Nice. They have insurance for that kind of stuff.

    I don't think it was insurance that replaced the iPad. I do think it was UPS trying to distance itself from the thief that motivated the replacement. That and the fact that UPS wants to be known as an honest company which doesn't tolerate thievery by it's employees.

    Perhaps, but he is not the first and won't be the last thief to work for UPS, hence some sort of insurance would be necessary or else they would go bankrupt replacing lost or stolen items. I wonder if they have to be bonded to work for them? Probably so.

    You're absolutely correct, that's the reason their employees are bonded. Among other things, it compensates the company for losses caused by employee theft.

    The bonding is some sort of insurance?

    Correct. The bonding company also does a criminal background check to determine if the employee is eligible to be bonded. A felony conviction would mean that you would be unacceptable to the bonding company and therefore would not be able to get a job that requires that you be bondable.

    So in retrospect the guy is now jobless with a record and has no iPad mini.

    He should have had the word "stupid" tattooed on his forehead as part of his punishment dumb idiot.
