Feeling a bit strange when in public
This has hit be several times now. I have a 64GB iPhone 4S, and the 64GB LTE iPad 3, and now a MacBook Air 13, and a Lenovo X220T (a convertible tablet PC running windows).
I'm not likely to be taking the two laptops with me as I go places, but I could have the phone, tablet, and one of these laptops.
Man, I feel if I let people see me with this stuff I'll be come a good target for a mugging. Weighing against that is the fact that I tend to be a rather menacing looking guy, but only to normal people, I would think. I still try to make sure that I don't pull out the phone while using the iPad (which is what I like to use if I'm in a restaurant or something).
Adding to this is this article I ran across:
The shame of owning an iPad | ZDNet
Now, frankly, I don't think there is anything "elitist" about owning an iPad.....that's just stupid. The real "elitist" among us are the super rich who also wield political power. I'm certainly not in that group and I suspect most iPad owners aren't either. But as a target for a hit-and-run mugging, I at least have stuff that the criminal element might desire.
Do you others here have similar feeling with your toys? Do you hide your toys when in public? Or do you let them all hang out? And, concerning the article, you people look at you funny or pay more attention to you when you pull out your iPad?
