The Federal Aviation Administration, or FAA, has relaxed its rules on electronic devices being used during flights. The New York Times reported the news, saying that the FAA will issue a new set of recommendations to ease "most of" the rules on flights this week.




There will still be restrictions in place, with the FAA not allowing calls to be made on the plane, using Wi-Fi or sending e-mails and text messages during takeoff. The FAA's changes won't take effect until sometime in 2014, so don't go whipping your electronic device out on your next flight in the US.
