You wouldn't just leave your bike unattended in the middle of Starbucks if you had to take a bathroom break, would you? OK maybe you would. But an iPad is much easier to steal! The solution: lock. it. up.
Is it socially acceptable to take your iPad with you into a coffeeshop bathroom? I don't know! But using one in public definitely still pegs you as that iPad guy, and just slipping it into your backpack won't do much to deter a thief. This new security bundle from MacLocks, comprised of a clear plastic case and a Kensington-style cable lock, will make sure no one runs off with your gear. It'd be rough to lose your iPad. It'd be even rougher to lose that Fruit Ninja high score.
You can preorder the iPad lock for $US65. And, hey, at least that iPad guy with that iPad lock will always get the last laugh. [Wired]
