Levy trashes MacBook Air
As in he threw his in trash. Accidentally, that is.

Newsweek technology columnist Steven Levy admitted in a recent post that he lost his MacBook Air loaner unit from Apple. He thinks that accidentally got recycled in a pile of newspapers.

On Sundays in my apartment, the coffee table where the Air sat becomes the final resting place for the bulky New York Times. It is not unusual for other magazines, and newspapers from previous days, to accumulate there as well. My wife, whose clutter tolerance is well below my own, sometimes will swoop in and hastily gather the pulp in a huge stack, going directly to the trash-compactor room just down the hall from our apartment, dumping the pile into a plastic recycling bin. Sometimes the whole mess gets so nasty that I even perform this task myself. Could it be that somewhere in the stack was a Macintosh computer so thin that its manufacturer brags it could fit inside an envelope? I believe so.

I guess that it's just an occupational hazard of working with the world's thinnest notebook computer. (Newsweek will be picking up the $1,800 tab, btw.)
