Hack steals Toshiba giveaway

Ethics... isn't that next door to Suffolk?

Toshiba's laptops proved to be more portable than most last night. A top-of-the-range Tecra 8000 DVD was stolen from a press function, allegedly by a computer journalist. The laptop, worth around £3,000, vanished around 11.30pm, Toshiba's press office revealed. Three notebooks were on display for journalists to peruse, with the Tecra 8000 offered as the top prize on the roulette table. But as the beers were downed, some crafty journo tea leaf is believed to have slipped the machine past the two bouncers at The Saint Bar near Leicester Square, in Central London. Fellow gamblers were duped and sent home empty- handed. ®
