In a shocking twist, the TSA made an announcement yesterday that will make traveling *easier* for people. It declared that iPads are not subject to the rule of removing large electronic devices from carry-on bags.
One of the worst things about going through an airport is that you have to take out your laptop from your carry-on and place it in a bin by itself for security screening. It has become known as the "laptop rule" but it is really just a restriction against large electronic devices that can scramble X-Ray signals.
I have taken my netbook through security without removing it, and have not had a problem. The same goes for my Wii.
In a blog post, the TSA reiterated the point that smaller electronic devices do not need to be pulled out, even if it seems contrary to the agents shouting at you to extract any and all laptops or game consoles.
But the TSA noted that most netbooks aren't a problem, and neither are things like the Kindle or Sony Reader. And it made a specific point of saying that the iPad is checkpoint-friendly.
The agency ended its "friendly reminder" blog posting saying, "So, kick back and enjoy your gadgets and all they have to offer."
