Breaking news: TSA may be useful for once

Here’s a brief update to my post about US border control’s recent push in seizing laptops, iPods, and other electronic whatnots. It seems the Transportation Security Administration does remain somewhat in touch with reality: they actually responded to this concern on their handy blog.

Should anyone at a TSA checkpoint attempt to confiscate your laptop or gain your passwords or other information, please ask to see a supervisor or screening manager immediately.

And it seems they fixed another snafu earlier this week about taking all electronics out of your bag at security. Turns out you don’t have to do that.

Anyways, their new blog isn’t all bad–yet.
