'Naked' scanners removed, air travelers get back a little dignity1/18/2013
It's a sad day for airport exhibitionists. Backscatter X-ray machines that produce naked images are being removed from U.S. airports because their manufacturer couldn't write software to make passenger images less revealing. The changes were mandated after privacy advocates sued the TSA in 2010, claiming the scanners violated the law and were equivalent to a "physically invasive strip search." The machines will be replaced by units from another company that don't use X-rays to peek under your clothes. Now if you want to flash someone at an airport, you'll have to go old school with a trench coat and willingness to be arrested on the spot. [Source]
