Electronics on Planes

Some wonderful headlines yesterday:

Disruptions: F.A.A. may loosen curbs on fliers’ use of electronics

If you’re sitting on a plane at the gate and reading this column on an electronic gadget, you’re about to hear eight dreaded words: “Please power down your electronic devices for takeoff.” But this time next year, you might hear something very different: “Please put your devices on ‘airplane mode’ for takeoff.”

Oh, it is SO about time!!  With all of the traveling that I do, this has become a pet peeve of mine.  To think that they use iPads in the cockpit and by the flight attendants, but the traveling public can't use them? Common sense just might prevail.
