I'm sorry but we had to fire at your MacBook...

Posted on Tuesday, December 15 2009 @ 19:52:27 CET by


Engadget brings the story of Lily Sussman. When travelling to Israel she was questioned for around two hours by security officers, and got her MacBook back with a couple of bullet holes. Apparently, airport security had to blow it up to verify it was safe...
Moments later a man came outside and introduced himself as the manager on duty. And then, “I’m sorry but we had to blow up your laptop. “

What….all my client case notes and testimony, writing, pictures, music and applications. Years of work. NO!!!! What?? Are you insane?? What were you thinking? THAT’S ALL MY WORK!?

After much yelling, crying and frantic phone dialing (don’t be alarmed if I called you repeatedly this morning), he took me outside to see the wreckage. It turned out it hadn’t been quite blown up, but rather shot through with three bullets. We were able to extract the hard drive, seemingly unscaved. Thank goodness…

Security had never asked for my password. Was it my peeling Arabic stickers on the keyboard? Or something else during the questioning which set them off?
