TSA--Whoopsie Daisy

Oops! Sorry, man. Here's a new computer for you. (Did they lose the other one?)

As is usually the case in situations like this, the TSA hasn't admitted to doing anything wrong, and in a letter to Elliott's attorney, simply states that his subpoena is "being withdraw [sic] as no longer necessary."

(Nod to Anonyman, who also notes that it seems odd that confiscation was even an issue in a civil case, before there was a hearing.)

(UPDATE: Shawn notes, in comments, that this lady had her laptop "blown up" by Israeli TSA. And, it appears to be true. Yike!)

Could be worse. Israeli security put 3 big ass holes (.45? your guess?) in a traveler's macbook.

Commenters debate cause:
Possible bomb scare? Is "shoot that bitch" an acceptable response to "it might be a bomb"?
Microsoft fans? Possible.
Hardcore security forces? Definitely.
