Semi-OT: Int'l Travellers' Laptops Confiscated...

Here's a bit of a caution for those International travellers 
(specifically Laptop Loopers) coming into the US.  It looks like the 
Department of Homeland Security has now begun taking it upon itself 
to confiscate and rifle through the data on some passengers' laptops, 
as well as storage devices.  Details from the Houston Chronicle here:


Granted, it's probably a longshot that you'll get tapped for such a 
search.  But if you're coming into the US from a foreign country, 
it's best to know the risks up front and plan accordingly.
