You may soon be 'allowed' to use electronics during Takeoff/Landing - except?

Most of us feel irritated when we are told to shut off our laptops and cellphone during the takeoff / landing of the aircraft.

But now there are some reassuring news: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) may only require you to put some gadgets such as e-readers and laptops in "airplane mode" during takeoffs and landings — maybe as soon as next year.

The news comes following demands from the public to scientifically prove why devices such as e-readers can't be used to read during takeoff and landing.

According to The New York Times, the FAA has been looking into the use of electronics on planes, and might ease up on the strict rules to shut them down during certain times.

However, don't get too excited. This wouldn't apply to cellphones, the report said.
