"I'm of the opinion now that if people have time to be on computers 12 hours a day listening to bits of U2 songs recorded over telephones.. fair dues to them. I wish I had that much time again."

In 1999, a bag holding personal papers and a laptop computer containing lyrics for the ATYCLB album was taken from Bono's car. Bono offered a reward of £2,000 for the return of the computer. An Irish man returned the laptop after having bought it for £300 thinking it was from a reputable source. He realised it was Bono's when he saw a picture of the singer's child Elijah Bob on the screen, prompting him to contact U2's management.
