They USED to do that. I remember going through security once with a discman and the security guy made me turn it on prove it was functional. The batteries were dead at the time, so he ended up just waving me through.
I'm sure they still do that in some countries, or maybe really small domestic airports.
As far as the backpack - You can usually get away with a backpack AND carry on, especially if you have your laptop in the backpack. They pretty much always let women bring on large purses along with their carry on, so I guess they can't say no to backpacks unless they said no to purses as well.
We need wins, and that's all we need. I don't give a damn about anyone on this roster over wins. I'd trade Ware, Lee and Dez if it meant more wins.
