The TSA has to remove the Rapiscan machines because they couldn't patch the software to remove customer-specific imagery? Why use them in the first place?
If I remember correctly, congress required imagery to be removed by a certain date. The requirement was put in place after the scanners were originally installed. Rapiscan said they couldn't meet the deadline, so TSA decided to switch to all L3 scanners, which already have the cookie-cutter image.
Could be bad news for those wanting PS3 Consoles on import.
