Traveling by air with both workplace and personal laptops

Employers make it “difficult enough” by monitoring use of workplace computers and prohibiting personal use and then sometimes requiring employees to travel with work computers by air.

But apparently the TSA doesn’t object to checking two laptops through security on carryon, as in this Yahoo! forum answer (link). It’s good to know.

Users might also want to check out the TSA “laptop friendly bag” procedures here.

Of course, employers have been monitoring personal use at home, particularly of social networking sites, for corporate "reputational" reasons as covered here Dec. 29.
