Xbox 360 sparks bomb scare

According to the New York Post, a man carrying an Xbox 360 in a metal case caused a bomb scare at MacArthur Airport on Long Island, forcing a terminal to be evacuated. From the article: "Officials say the Chicago-bound flier, worried that his game console might be swiped if he checked it, instead put it in a metal case that he carried through security checkpoints. At 12:15 p.m., the container passed through an X-ray machine, and screeners thought it might have held a bomb."

Being that the Xbox 360 is the size of a small bomb, don't place the console into a suspicious metal case if you're ever traveling through the airport.

Thanks, D.

Smart move not checking it. Probably would have been swiped.
