Posted in News by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2011

The iPhone is a hot commodity even after all this time. Apple is making a ton of money on it, smugglers too. When they can get away with smuggling the goods anyway. An Israeli women was caught at Ben-Gurion International Airport, while attempting to smuggle 44 iPhone 4 smartphones under her clothes. Apparently they were everywhere, including her stockings.

The woman, who is in her 60s, was returning from London when one of the airport’s full-body scanners detected the load of smartphones that she was hiding under a traditional Georgian outfit. Officials had also noticed that she appeared to be walking with difficulty, which is what made them notice her in the first place.

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2010

The American Transportation Security Administration has informed travelers via it’s blog, that when traveling to, from, and within the USA, portable computers smaller than “the standard sized laptop” don’t have to be removed from their bags.

So what is the standard sized laptop? Well, they don’t really say. However, Kindles, iPads, Sony Readers, Nooks, and “Net Books” are named as being exempt from the requirement to unbag your computer for the X-ray scanners. Of course, there’s the disclaimer that staff might want to take a second look at odd-looking devices, but for the most part you can leave that e-reader in your bag.

New Apple Airport Extreme juggles two networks at onceApple offers up something a little different in the wireless router market with the new Airport Extreme. Its dual-band Wi-Fi radios allow the device to work in 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands at the same time. It can also support up to 50 users simultaneously, and does so while setting up separate limited-access networks for guests to restrict access when you need to.

The $179 pricetag on the new Airport Extreme is typical of Apple and isn’t justified. Hasn’t Apple heard that times are tough?

Denver airport censors free Wi-Fi connection
Denver International Airport is the biggest airport in the world to offer free Wi-Fi. Problem is, now a Denver newspaper reports that the connection is being censored. The airport is blocking certain blogs like BoingBoing.net, perezhilton.com and other “potentially racy sites.” The airport’s position is that they would rather deal with complaints about censorship, than complaints about people viewing objectionable content on their laptops. What now? Why not censor radio broadcasts while you’re at it?

The Seattle Times quite correctly points out that Denver International Airport stores sell hard-core porn magazines, but they block the Sports Illustrated swimsuit site online. Word is they have also blocked the Vanity Fair magazine web site.
