When I travel, sometimes, I don't feel like carrying my Nook HD+ with me, especially if I have my laptop with me so I check it in my checked bag. I've noticed that everytime I do this, I end up with a card in my bag informing me that TSA had to open and inspect.
Has anyone else noticed this? Is it just with the Nook or other tablets?
Now when I have it in my carry-on bag stacked on top of my laptop, no one ever needs to take a second look.
Li-on batteries can be dangerous, and have started/almost started fires on aircraft. The FAA wants passengers to have them with them in case something goes wrong with them and they can work with crew members to prevent anything serious happening. There have been airplane crashes where the exact cause of fire was never exactly determined, but there were Li-on batteries listed as cargo ( industrial quantities ). I have never had any catch fire, but I had one which got hot enough to discolor the info sticker on it.
Unfortunately, it would not be too difficult for someone who knew what they were doing to modify a "smart" device into a timer controlled incendiary device...
