The Hardest Drive



Like a Pro.

I know you don’t normally do this but I stupidly left my 15″ MacBook Pro (as above) on top of my car and drove off from Pembroke Gardens, up Baggot Lane, left on to Eastmoreland Place, right on to Baggot Street and left up Waterloo Road heading for Rathmines.
It’s in a foam case, there was a folder and pad with it which have my business cards. Happened just over an hour ago, have contacted Irishtown Gardaí as well as businesses along Baggot St but no joy. Laptop is locked but “find my iPhone” app which is compatible with MacBooks only works when online. Thank you.


UPDATE: Eoin writes: A4 pad was just found on the corner of Leeson Street and Appian Way, no laptop though…

More as it reaches us.


UPDATE: Laptop found!

Somehow, it’s still in perfect working order with a small dent on one corner. Counting my lucky stars and the generosity and kindness of my fellow Dubliners, and of course the stellar work from the Gardaí in Donnybrook! I will be making a donation to charity as I am one lucky huare.

    Eoin just keep find my iPhone open on your phone that way as soon as the mac goes online you can grab its location. Did you have a firmware password set on it? If so it’ll be a lot of work to boot it.

      but on the bright side, you should be getting selfies from a chap in Darndale in 3…2…1

    This has given me the encouragement to put everything on my computer onto Google Drive

    I once left my wallet on the roof of my car at a petrol station outside Sligo.
    I didn’t know if lost it until I saw it
    jammed into the back of the roof-bars when unpacking my car in Dublin.

    Would have been smashed if it was a PC. Only an Apple would have survived the fall off the car.
