Bad Idea Jeans or just what we're moving towards? Rikomatic caught a woman working on her laptop on the R train this morning and wonders if it's a good idea. Gothamist would have to say no, because a cellphone, iPod, PSP, or other tiny object is something you can tuck into your pocket or hold onto more easily, while a laptop gives someone more square inches to grab onto right before a stop. (Though a laptop is harder to conceal when running away with it.) Which doesn't mean we haven't seen people use their laptops before. But we much prefer seeing people sketch or work on their chain mail.
