FAA looking to loosen restrictions on e-readers, tablets
New York Times: The Federal Aviation Administration may be moving to relax its rules regarding the use of tablets and e-readers on airplanes by the end of the year, according to a new report.
The new rules would allow fliers to turn their devices onto airplane mode rather than turn them off, although cellphones would not be covered under the new policy.
