TSA – Laptop Bags

If you thought traveling in the US was annoying before then this will be interesting to know. The have new “guidelines” applying to the type of laptop bag you should use to make it “scanner friendly”. And another note on top of that is that they have the right to go through the data on your laptop to make sure its “safe”. So you have pretty much lost all your privacy for the sake of security. If they do find copied data such as movies or tv or anything else they decided it is dangerous. They just keep making more and more rules that are nothing short of ridiculous, they will just take your laptop out of the bag in the first place.

    What’s the fuss about? If you don’t want to use the new bags, you can still take your laptop out like before. And if anyone thinks airport security is going to spend their time looking for pirated mp3s, they haven’t traveled by plane in a while.

    Sheesh…
