Airport security seems to be ran by iZombies... there are a few good ones that actually "gets it" the other 95% of them -- I question their mental metal ...

It runs on dreams and wishes harvested from orphaned children.

If you're a middle-eastern looking person, even your toothbrush will be rigorously examined. You might as well just walk into the airport naked and without baggage.

I'm a huge PC Gamer, and I love taking my full sized tower with me when I go see my brother in Pennsylvania. It's always so awkward though when going through security because.... I mean cmon, who the hell brings a full tower on an airplane?

Every time I fly, TSA had me take my PMP out of it's case and put into a separate bin because they say it is just like a laptop even though it is a handheld device. My PMP is far smaller than a tablet or a iPad. So, if the TSA is no saying that tablets/iPads don't need to be taken out of their case, I guess my PMP won't need to either anymore. However, until now TSA has told me that all devices were to be treated as a laptop.

wow, do you know how much damage you can do with the amount of explosive you can stuff in an ipad or ereader??? trust me, while in flight it's a lot of damage. TSA needs to scan these things and make sure that these things are indeed what they are designed to be

Ugh... even if you're not going to scan them... don't tell us!

It's like they WANT the terrorists to know where to hide explosives...

By "no CPU or a hard drive" the security meant "no big metal chunks that can be disguised explosives" they are dumb, but not that dumb. :)

Tablets too? My Thinkpad x61t is a tablet. I have SSD instead of HDD, but I think it has a CPU in it. So, do I have to put it in the separate bin for TSA?
