Relax, owners of Titanium G4 Powerbooks, you have nothing to fear when you walk through airport security.

Residues reportedly found on the Apple laptop which shut Burbank airport, for six hours on Friday night did not come from the titanium case - but from the computer bag in which it was held, the LA Times reveals in an updated story.

But what were these residues and how did they get there? The owner of the suspicious laptop/bag, a 27-year-old male was in no state to help the authorities in their quest to establish the facts - as he was very, very drunk. ®
