The lack of a logo really draws attention to this laptop, Hollywood.
You should have just put a sticker on it, IMO. That would have been verite.
In many parts of the world, people have a place to live but they can’t afford a laptop PC or a car.
In San Francisco, things are a bit different:

For various reasons. (Can you list them?)
All the condensate on the windows – that’s how the SFPD knows you’re sleeping in your car. The cops don’t really care though.
(Your laptop keeps you in the loop and lets you look for work, of course.)
Anyway, this scene is a sign of the times, 2010s-style.
That’s my guess anyway, in the pool I’m in, the First Apple iPad Theft on BART or MUNI pool.
I have April 7th from 5:00-6:00 PM – wish me luck. (Only genuine iPad thefts count, of course.)
Speaking of which, comes now the BART Police, reminding us to protect our coveted shinies when we’re on Bay Area Rapid Transit trains. Check it out, below.

Here it is, with more typos than an average post from this blog. Stay safe!
The Apple iPad was just released this past weekend, and commuters already are toting the tablet computers along on BART — prompting lots of riders to report their first sightings of iPads “in the wild” on BART.
Along with attracting attention from curious commuters, the iPad — like other easily portable and expensive electronic devices — may also be a new target for potential thieves. BART Police are using the occasion as a reminder of general safety tips for protecting your personal property while on BART.
What items tempt you the most when you scan parked cars for Objects in Plain View – would it be a laptop computer, an iPod, maybe a backpack? Well, be careful, cause when the SFPD baits cars for sting operations in Golden Gate Park, they sometimes use all three. (It’s almost like entrapment, or something. So tempting these parcels are, next thing you know, it’s smashy smashy!)
From the Richmond District Blog comes a sneak peek of Richmond Station Police Captain Richard Corriea‘s next weekly update for the Richmond District Police Community Police Forum. Read an entire entry below.
Yes, it’s MLK near the Friend Gate of Strybing Arboretum. Perhaps the cars huddle together for safety?
“On July 25, 2009 Richmond [District] officers working in plain clothes staked out a car at Middle Drive and Bowling Green Drive in Golden Gate Park. There were several items of value in the car, including, a backpack, computer and an IPOD. The officers knew from experience that an auto burglar would find the car an appealing target. Indeed, several hours into the stakeout an individual burglarized the car, and he was immediately arrested. A subsequent search of the suspect turned up evidence from a theft committed nearby earlier in the day and narcotics. The suspect, who has been arrested forty-nine times, including thirty-one times for felonies, was booked for burglary, possession of stolen property, theft and a narcotics violation. This individual is likely responsible for several auto burglaries daily.”
How many car windows do you have to break to get a rap sheet this long – hundreds, thousands?
