Ok, Who Got the New Techie Toy for Christmas?

This article discusses a couple of recent (as in post-Christmas) incidents of someone shining a laser into the cockpit of a plane. (I heard about it on the radio this morning.) The government is worried that this might be terrorists.

Maybe. I, on the other hand, would start checking the catalogs that sell high-end toys for techies to see which of them are selling lasers that would fit the description of the offending beams. I think several somebodies got a new toy for Christmas and didn't realize that they could actually hit the airplane with it.

Never underestimate what a techie will do with Somebody Else's Airplane.
