Where's the proof that there were ever going to be exploding laptops? It seems to have magically gone back into the fairy dust / rocking horse excrement that it always was. I'm also glad to see the UK's 'Me too' knee-jerk reaction has quietened down.
While the US isn't going to be on my 'must visit' list any time soon, I think I feel a lot safer without all the Li Ion batteries quietly warming up in the hold, away from any method of being extinguished short of arriving, along with the fireball remains of the aircraft, at high speed into the Atlantic from about 38,000ft.
