FAA Loosens rules on electronic use while flying

Airline passengers will soon be able to use electronics during takeoffs, landings and throughout flights.
The Federal Aviation Administration made the announcement this morning.
Before the new rule takes effect, airlines must demonstrate that aircraft won't be at risk because of potential interference from portable electronic devices.
That is expected to take place quickly and the devices approved for use by the end of the year.

Voice calls are still banned.
And connecting to the internet remains prohibited when the plane is less than 10,000 feet in the air.
