iPad, Muni, everyone, their mother
Anyone who spent the tiniest amount of time online this weekend was surely bombarded with some combination of “iPad” … “Easter” … “iPad” … “iPad” … “Final Four.”
The more cynical of us are wondering if when the first iPad theft on Muni will happen. We know that iPhones were getting snatched out of people’s hands on the bus last year, so these lightweight, pricey iPads might be just begging to be lifted. In fact, Jim Herd of SF Citizen bet on tomorrow at 5 p.m. in his office pool. Good luck?
It’s such a funny combination of cheap, scruffy and old + shiny, new and expensive. I would totally use this to conceal my iPad (my hypothetical iPad) on Muni so no one steals it!
Because, really, what would-be thief would hover above you to see what you’re reading before yanking your Precious away from you?
