Antique Books Protect Laptops
Tuesday, January 26, 2010 17:22 GMTCHARLESTON, S.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Antique books can provide serious protection for your hard drive.
Design company TwelveSouth is keeping computer thieves at bay with their Bookbook, a cover for Macbooks that looks like a hardcover antique book.
Spokesperson Andrew Green says the hard cover will not only keep a laptop safe from cracks and scratches, itll fool thieves who want to take off with a pricey piece of technology.
He adds, The Bookbook gives a laptop that cloak of security. Its not the obvious thing a thief would go for. You lay it on a desk and people have no clue.
Green thinks the mix of modern technology with something that appears to be very old makes for an interesting juxtaposition and is a great conversation piece.
It also gives people a distinguished air about them, even if all they have on their computer is downloaded porn.
