And you've never left something behind in a taxi or on a bus/train before? I imagine to many of these folks, their laptop isn't seem as a prized posession as it is to us geeks :) I've left god knows how many umbrellas behind on trains, usually as a result of waking up as the train pulls into my station and being in a rush not to miss my stop. I even once left a couple of O'Rielly books I'd just bought behind once, having been distracted by other things in the carriage (books behind and below my feet were quite simply forgotten about until I was off it looking back as it pulled away). "Other things" being made of a much softer `fabric' ;) In reality, it is not that hard to imagine these things being "left behind".
