At least, that's one of the strong theories Newsweek's Steven Levy is going on regarding the disappearance of his new computer.<br><br><Font size=+1><B>Gone, Without a Trace</B></Font><br>http://www.newsweek.com/id/120052/output/print<OL><B>"In lieu of the presence of a poltergeist with techno-lust, I have developed a theory that I first viewed as remote, but now believe explains the fate of my Air.</B><tt>[...snip...]</tt><B>As humiliating as it sounds, let me repeat: the MacBook Air is so thin that it got tossed out with the newspapers.</I></B>[/LIST]<br><br>[i]"This is not here."

I've already had two scares with it and I hope I learned my lesson. I attend two meetings which all the material we read prior to the meeting is left in the conference room to be discarded by the office. These are reviews of grants and stuff which we should not keep. Both times I had my MacBook Air on the table in an interoffice mailer just like the commercial. I feel it is the best defense for theft. Who steals interoffice mail? (I did reinforce the corners with clear tape and put my address as the next place to deliver it.)<br><br>I get distracted by a conversation pick up my pack and coat and walk out of the room. Both times a light bulb went off early enough I was able to double back. The problem is that at three pounds you do not know that you are not carrying it. Now I constantly reach in and try to bend the envelope. Stiff. Cool.<br><br>I now have a very light canvas bag which I can actually tell the difference between empty Air and Air.<br><br><br><br><br>
I can see how that would happen. The darn things are so light.<br><br>I talked with a girl at the airport yesterday. She's a very new switcher. She'd just got her MBA last Wednesday. I asked how she liked it and she grinned from ear to ear. She loves OSX and her new Air. <br><br>
