Queue-stion of the day:
Do you secure gadgets in your hotel room?

In today's show, we talked about a local news investigation where the reporter went into various hotels and told housekeeping that she was locked out of her room. Guess what? They just used their master key to let her in! No questions asked! I used to pretty much trust hotel housekeeping to not steal any of my stuff--I'd leave my computer on the desk and my iPod charging--but now I realize it's not housekeeping I need to worry about! It's the random thief who might make his way into my room just by asking housekeeping for permission! Needless to say, over the weekend I used the in-closet safe to store my stuff. What about you? Comment below!
