'Inside Edition' robbed while covering a story about "smash and grab" thefts in San Francisco
- An "Inside Edition" crew found themselves duped while reporting on "smash and grab" crimes in San Francisco, ending up as victims of a robbery and losing thousands of dollars worth of equipment.
- The car — and the goods — were equipped with video cameras and GPS tracking devices so they could follow and apprehend the criminals.
- After the items were stolen, Guerrero and crew followed the couple to a nearby BART station.
- "You've got my speaker right there, you just broke into our car," Guerrero says to the alleged thief, who initially refused to return the goods.
- But ironically, while "Inside Edition" was apprehending an alleged criminal on-screen, the crew's car was broken into.
- While reviewing the surveillance the tape of the "smash and grab" back, crew members noticed another crime happening down the street.

Introducing Classic View, a new way for subscribers to browse Ars
- When Ars launched in 1998—two whole decades ago—it was a simple site with the entire text of stories appearing on the front page.
- Classic View isn't exactly like the Ars of 20 years ago.
- Our stories are longer on average than they were back then, so putting the entire text of all of our stories on each page would result in an insane amount of scrolling.
- Instead, Ars Pro subscribers will see headlines, lower deks (the brief summaries that accompany story headlines), and the first three paragraphs of each story.
- Ars Pro and Pro++ subscribers will find the new view option in the upper right three-bar menu dropdown (the so-called "hamburger menu"), alongside the existing grid and list view options.
- In addition, we've slimmed down the top navigation for Classic view, and made it even easier to toggle between light and dark reading modes.
Black Friday is projected to be the busiest shopping day of the year, despite 'Christmas creep'
- Even though retailers are offering deals earlier and earlier each holiday season, resulting in a "Christmas creep," Black Friday is still expected to be the busiest shopping day of 2018, by far, according to one retail tracking firm.
- In addition, the top 10 shopping days of the holiday season are expected to account for almost 45 percent of this year's holiday visits, according to an annual survey by ShopperTrak.
- Because of this, ShopperTrak expects the Saturday before Christmas — known as Super Saturday — to be busier this year than in 2017.
- Because Christmas fell on a Monday last year, shoppers were more pressured to get gifts on the Friday before Christmas.
- In addition to the busiest days of the holiday season, ShopperTrak looked at the busiest hours.
- ShopperTrak has been selling foot counters since 2011 to retailers to analyze shopper habits.
