A 24-Year-Old Scammed Apple 42 Times In 16 Different States

Patent Lover Re:Wow ... (409 comments)

TSA Prohibits Taking Discharged Electronic Devices Onto Planes

Patent Lover Re:Christmas is coming early this year (702 comments)

Nope. The TSA are not police. They cannot arrest you, they cannot investigate anybody, they cannot seek a warrant, and they cannot carry guns. They are somewhat glorified security guards that happen to work at airports.
