If The Airport Guy Says To Take Your iPad Out of the Bag, You Better Do It

Lots of talk about how the iPad does not need to be removed from bags for separate x-raying by airport security, but it seems a bit premature.

Sure, it’ll be a nice convenience, but let’s not pretend security personnel at every airport will be aware of this soon. I strongly suspect many of them will see it as a “laptop” and want it in a separate bin.

In a year or so, maybe we never mess with this again, but for now I wouldn’t make any assumptions, and I sure as heck wouldn’t try to explain to the guy why he shouldn’t be asking you to remove the iPad. That seems like a recipe for a long day at the airport.
