In the interest of full disclosure, I love Starbucks. I admit that I was a Tim Hortons slave for the last decade but nothing gets me going every morning like my grande bold. (Incidentally, I’d like to thank the barista at the First Canadian Place concourse location for complimenting me on my tie this morning.)
But this post is not about my tie nor the risks of reaching across other patrons to grab my two Splendas and dairy canisters; it’s about Chris MacDonald’s blog post on thieves pinching your laptop at Starbucks.
I never leave my laptop unprotected and travel with a lock. I also leave the lock in my truck so I can secure my computer if I stop at the Walmart on the way home – which as the author notes is another hotbed of crime.
