The agency is a waste of time and space and only makes people hate flying more.
As for the machine that will bring up the person's info. Congrats on leaving the 90s and joining the 21st Century TSA.
If I can drive, I will. If I need to fly, pretty sure I'll leave all my devices home and just get a burn phone when I arrive at wherever. Or maybe put my phone in a FedEx box and overnight it to my destination.
TSA can fuck off
