The latest wheeze at Schiphol is to ask you to open your laptop. Kind of 2000’s retro without having to actually having to “turn your laptop on please, sir”. Given that the laptop in question is a MacBook Air it might just have been disbelief on the security drone’s part. I am not sure that even Jonny Ive could pack a decent bomb into an MBA.

Honourable despatches: the security drone last week who wanted to examine my stapler (which he recognised in the x-ray).  Apparently it might have been masking something, in which case why examine the stapler? He should have been examining the things around it.

Airport security – a logic free zone.
