    FAA finally considering relaxing silly mobile device rules

    Looks like, finally, we may no longer be told that a portable CD player could make the plane somersault and explode.

    According to the article, cell phones and online devices will have the same restrictions. Offline devices, on the other hand..

    So that means we'll be able to legally take photos out the window on takeoff and landing? Sweet!

    i didn't mind the rule... then again i also think it was there more to make sure people's attention is on the FAs in case of something going wrong and an evacuation being needed.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.
