Lucky for you, but you have to wonder: is it that hard to put some
nasty device in a case looking like a laptop one, and give it some
blinking LEDs?

Makes you wonder about the security personnell, doesn't it.  Or the
time they stopped my mom at the metal detector when it was actually
the person in front of her that set off the alarm.
