    I just got back from Toronto. No problems with my iPad through security.

    I fly fairly frequently and it is all about the airport. If you are flying through Atlanta take it out. They always make me take out my ipad or kindle. Everywhere else I have not had to take it out.

    And this is why we have issues with airport security, because they aren't consistent.

    Well about 3 weeks ago I flew from DFW to Jan Jose (Costa Rica) and return - both legs via Atlanta, and none of them bothered.

    We also had a Trimble field computer, netbook, Kindle, and conventional laptop - we took all out except the Kindle and the iPad.

    Odd how they do that where there isn't any consistency.

    i been to big apple and back a couple of times and the only time i ever had to take it out was in the layover city and it was more of just a quick look at the time...along with the last time i flew up to seattle out of modesto it was basically leave it in the bag and scan it with everything in the bag ..

    If you believe that the smoke and mirror show the TSA does is in any way real security, you are sorely mistaken.

    Having a little inside info of my local airport and I guarantee you I could easily access the secure areas. Not that I would, because the Homeland Security people ARE good at arresting people, as opposed to being worthless at protecting people.

    so true so true.. i sit and watch people as basic from years as a mp and other forms of law enforcement ..so i really do watch goes on around me and at times i sit and wonder what fuction does the TSA really does provide us in the long run ..i ran have a couple of woman up there asking question than some of the tsa people .

    a couple of months ago i flew back east did not have a problem going back to the big apple ..but on the way back i had a layover and a change of planes to get back home.. now i shave my head so in my little carry on i have two forms of shaveing gels one for the face which in small travel can and one for the head which it in a small travel tube labeled ..the guy who did the seach could not understand why i had two types of shaveing gel and we where waiting for his boss to come i am standing there thinking if can tell one is for the head di-----t- then you need to get better training..he went through things and pulling them out to be displayed on the table

    so the boss comes up and looks at the gel and looks and me and tells me to go and have a nice trip .. as iam walking away i hear the comment when you shave your head it matters what brand of shaveing cream is used he told the guy .. the boss also had a shaved head ..
