Apple crumble: there’s no need for security

Andy Greenberg has blogged an item at Forbes.com that suggests that Apple’s  “we don’t have security issues” stance has persuaded even the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) that this also applies to the iPad’s potential for terrorist activity. (Actually, it appears to be because they don’t consider it to be a laptop.)

Sorry, I couldn’t resist blogging that story at more length for the ESET blog: http://www.eset.com/blog/2010/04/06/so-apple-really-doesnt-have-a-security-problem
