    What a name! Does it mean they change their product line for wherever they detect the scent of money?

    The name arose because it was designed and marketed by a bunch of uckfing mazy lorons.

    The CTX machines are pretty good pieces of equipment, We have some of their machines in our bag rooms. I am not certain whether they use these at checkpoints or not, but they are pretty awesome as far as xray systems go.

    They're probably awesome at determining where the money and electronics are in baggage so they're more easily stolen.

    Oh yeah, they're great at identifying iPads, mp3 players, dvd's and games, etc, so a TSA employee can loot the right bag. I've had a mp3 player and a cd case full of movies and games stolen. Odd, it happened on a flight where I was late checking in as well, so the bag didn't have time to go the baggage room and get searched by an airline employee. The bag was packed with mostly clothes, with the cd case and mp3 player tucked near the bottom and folded in to the clothes. It was clearly pilfered by the TSA. I tried to file a claim with both the TSA and the airline, but I think everybody here can figure out how that went down.

    As an aside, you can see the Morpho building from Highway 84 about a mile or so from the Dumbarton bridge toll plaza, outside of Newark.
