Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004

If you don't think that it's a big deal that the government can seize lap-tops, books, magazines, or any other information media from people when they are traveling, and don't need a compelling reason to do so-

-I assume this might be because you don't travel and won't be inconvenienced, or you think you have nothing to hide.

If that's the case, I'd just like to point you to Denialism.com, were they point out that your doctor probably travels - and he could possibly have some of your private information on his laptop.

yup...
First off.. curious to see how this policy affects our international trade. Would you want to be the "road warrior" U.S. or foreign having to travel abroad knowing U.S. customs can seize and copy your data?

Second... I expect companies will be looking more and more to cloud computing and encryption. Travel with a "clean" device, get what you need from you companies "services" then wipe you machine before you return home. I expect Europe to leap ahead of us on this.
