Do you ever fly on a commercial airline? Do you own a smart phone, tablet, or laptop computer? If so, you may be interested to know that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced last week that airline passengers may soon be able to use personal electronic devices "during all phases of flight." The new rules will be implemented as each airline proves to the FAA that its planes can safely allow the use of such devices in "airplane mode." Read more about it in the FAA press release:
though you may be able to use your device before and during take-off,
I'm sure the flight attendants would still appreciate it if you'd at
least pretend to be listening to their safety speech.
