Indeed - walking down the street with a flimsy-going-on-transparent Apple Store bag containing an obviously brand new MacBook Pro (as I watched a teenager do the other day) pretty much screams "mug me ! mug me *now* !" to the wrong sort of person. You shouldn't *have* to take precautions just to get your purchases home, but it's a sadly imperfect world we live in :(

Yes. Also, don't use Apple's bags; use a generic opaque bag when you go 
shopping for high-end tech.
