Why worry?


Concerned over taking your laptop to China?

National security agencies are warning businesses and federal officials that laptops and e-mail devices taken to the Beijing Olympics are likely to be penetrated by Chinese agents aiming to steal secrets or plant bugs to infiltrate U.S. computer networks.

Chinese government and industry use electronic espionage to "easily access official and personal computers," says one recent report by the Overseas Security Advisory Council, a federally chartered panel comprising security experts from corporations and the State, Commerce and Treasury departments. - USA Today

Hey, go ahead and take it!  I’m sure the friendly folks at U.S. Customs will be glad to find any problems for you when you bring it back.
