TSA and eReaders: An Update

At least they haven’t heard about the new rule in Denver, Colorado, where this blogger was forced to have his backpack rescanned after a TSA officer who said “we didn’t get that memo” took his netbook out of his bag for rescanning. Though his iPad went through without a hitch.

Alas, the dream of easier air-travel remains a dream, for now…
