Flying safety routines

Does anyone know how do video cameras, laptops or even small audio equipment (like Ipods) fit into these new carrying baggage safety routines?

At least it looks as if South American countries will not embrace this new status quo. But as I was planning a business trip to Spain in November, I was thinking what will I be able to take with me on the plane.

In any case I am not sure these new routines will really be as effective as they think they will be, instead of making people less understanding and impatient.

Here in the USA the TVs are saying that the only new banned items are liquids and gels. As I understand it the total ban on electronics in carryon applies only to flights from the UK.

Of course this should be checked with your airline, but if you look at the list of what is not allowed, it's so long that you can't even take a book with you. Believe me. It's ridiculous.

The comments I got in the papers here, and it's a serious newspaper, were from people in JFK, and I don't think it was only for international flights. Free-shops will certainly go out of business.

Perhaps I may be sounding preposterous, but I am doing two possible readings over this situation that is emerging:

1) The airlines will have to create an ID of some kind for every person who wants to take restricted items, like an Ipod, a camera or a laptop. Modern executives and professionals need tools and they can't be shipped. You can't ship something as simple as a cell phone, as it would be ridiculous... and I don't use one.

2) It looks to me as a justification for US UK governments demmanding obligatory IDs for everybody, even for internal flights. Many US or UK citizens will jump at that, but I don't think that is so bad or an invasion of privacy. It can prevent a lot of things criminal.

In any case I may have to see if those limitations are also enforced on trips from here to Europe, other than UK, if my project is accepted on some film festivals I want to attend next November. Or at least see if it's something happening on every airline or just on American ones.

I hear there is a push for biometrics----

Many restrictions from the UK are being lifted today. You can take small pieces of hand luggage on board which can include mobile phones, ipods, etc. Liquids are still banned.
