Apple Titanium Powerbooks Not A Bomb Threat

from the phew dept

After stories bouncing around yesterday saying that a guy effectively shut down Burbank Airport for hours because his titanium Apple Powerbook had suspicious “residue” on it, I started coming up with all sorts of scare tactics to use on my titanium Powerbook owning friends. Turns out that it wasn’t the Powerbook. The residue came from the bag – though that’s not explained very clearly either. Also, the length of the delay was increased due to the individual being insanely drunk at the time, making it rather difficult for him to answer questions.
