The FAA has finally made official what it has been hinting over the past few months. Use of small mobile devices will be permitted onboard commercial flights during taxi, take-off and landings. Laptops will still be verboten at altitudes under 10,000 feet.
But don't go whipping out those iPhones and iPads quite yet, boys and girls. While the FAA is down with the concept, each of the airlines will now need to prove to the agency that their fleet can withstand the increased bombardment of radio interference to which their planes will now be subjected.
The FAA expects most airlines to be compliant (and allow mobile device use) by year's end.
And, HealthCare.gov was supposed to work on October 1.
I won't be holding my breath.
