This looks perfect for the ban on taking electronic devices on planes - the airline can "rent" approved superscreens to provide a better experience.
I heard some airlines are renting approved laptops, but that leaves the cargo hold full of devices with lithium-ion batteries which presents another danger
As you say, Airlines dont want YOUR laptop tablet in the main cabin as it could be rigged. Im sure airlines wont have a problem providing Laptop tablet rental, which they can screw people for.
Explosions in the luggage hold arent good, but not bad enough to do much damage.
At worst, they'll lose a lot of luggage and probably have a hole in the plane.
Luggage hold isn't pressurized, wouldnt that also reduce damage?
Umm, actually, cargo holds are indeed pressurised.
