Just ban all air travel, trains and cars - that way there can’t be any terror risk to travel infrastructure. /s
This ban brought to you by the leading suppliers of cloud computing...
NO! How could they?!? That’s racist! That’s like, uh, banning muslims!!!
I suppose that if I were a suicidal moslem, I’d figure out a way to breach the laptop’s battery, soak it in some water and toss it all into a lavatory waste bin.
