Court Reporters, Handcuff Your Laptops To Your Wrist
Do you know what the second most common crime in the United States is? The first is identity theft. But the FBI estimates that laptop theft is No. 2 with over 2,000,000 notebooks reported stolen each year. As all court reporters are aware, losing your laptop would be tantamount to death. You'd have to replace the hardware and the software (and your CAT key, of course) but what about lost jobs? Can you possibly imagine how horrible it would be if you lost your dictionary, all the jobs and worksheets?
Handcuff your laptop to your wrist.
