Keep your eye on your laptop

Here's a cautionary tale about laptops at the airport, and how scammers scheme to take yours off your hands. I'm not sure if they could use the same scheme in the U.S., where you have to take the laptop out of its bag, but I'm sure there are ways to do it.

Bottom line: Keep your eye on your stuff as you go through security! (Thanks to Gizmodo for the pointer.)
