小编摘要:很多人出门喜欢随身携带电子书,但近日有旅游者称,机场的X射线扫描仪损坏了他们的Kindle,这一消息到底是真是假?

 导读:最近有旅游者在一些论坛上说,机场的安检机器有时会破坏Kindle的屏幕显示,他们对此感到困惑不解。然而另一些用户和亚马逊坚持认为扫描仪的辐射不会对电子墨水屏造成影响,觉得这些都是谣言。也有人觉得大家对电子墨水屏的工作原理并不清楚,可能有其特别之处造成它对辐射极其敏感。无论如何,大家要是打算带着Kindle出门,还是做好心理准备吧!


Airport security X-ray machines sometimes scramble Kindle displays according to reports from travellers.

Baffled users have taken to internet forums to recount horror stories of their electronic readers, made by retail giant Amazon, apparently being ruined by baggage checks, which expose items to radiation.

One American customer, posting on a Kindle forum as ‘dwaszak’, complained that her son’s Kindle ‘looked like a magic eye etch-a-sketch’ after passing through airport security in New York.

She added: ‘The screen is burned so badly that even in the off position you see all of the lines and squiggles and letters.’

There appears, however, to be a great deal of confusion over the issue, with other users and Amazon itself insisting that there shouldn’t be a problem.

On an Amazon forum another owner wrote: ‘There is absolutely no proof, evidence nor technical possibility that the X-ray scanner has any affect whatsoever on e-ink or any electrical devices. That is just rumour and unfounded speculation with no basis in fact.’

Likewise, an Amazon spokesman told The Daily Telegraph: ‘Exposing your Kindle to an X-ray machine, such as those used by airport security, should not cause any problems.’

However, user The Hooded Claw, wrote: ‘I suppose it is conceivable that there is something special about e-Ink that makes it exquisitely sensitive to radiation, but from my limited knowledge of how e-Ink works, I'm sceptical.’

Some are speculating that turning the Kindle off safeguards it from suffering any damage, with ‘dwaszak’ explaining that her son’s device had been on when it was put through an X-ray maching.

But Michael Tracy complained that his Kindle froze after receiving a security scan, despite being powered down.
