FAA Recommends Easing In-Flight Electronic Devices Restrictions

A special panel formed by the FAA has recommended the allowance of electronic gadgets such as tablets and smart phones during the takeoff and landing of a flight. What that means is that from now on e-readers and laptops may be used freely on an airline by passengers. If the device is on airplane mode and has its Wi-Fi facility turned off during takeoff and landing, then there are no problems whatsoever. 

Except for calls and Internet surfing all other activities will be within the boundaries of the law. Before this there were many laws regarding usage of electronic equipment on board a plane. This was because the technology interfered with the sensitive instruments in the cockpit. But the latest airplanes have cockpits that are protected against any interference by electronic gadgets.  

The panel sat down and deliberated on the issue today. It will give its report to the authority within a week’s time. Whether its recommendations become laws depends upon the FAA. Chances are that changes will be made based on the advice of this panel of 28 participants. Approval may come soon but the plan will be implemented by 2014. The annoyance felt by airline passengers on being told to switch off their devices is going to become a thing of the past. All iPhones, iPads and iPods will be yours to use. You may play games, listen to music, watch movies and work if you like.

Hudson Crossing's analyst of airline and travel industry, Henry Harteveldt, told AP, "You will not be able to play `Words With Friends,' you will not be able to shop, you will not be able to surf websites or send email. You will be able to read or work on what's stored on the device. You want to edit that PowerPoint? Great. You want to watch `Breaking Bad' and you have it downloaded to your smartphone or your tablet, you can continue to do that."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
