"Fliers Still Must Turn Off Devices, but It's Not Clear Why"

Nick Bilton for The New York Times:

Surely if electronic gadgets could bring down an airplane, you can be sure that the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration, which has a consuming fear of 3.5 ounces of hand lotion and gel shoe inserts, wouldn’t allow passengers to board a plane with an iPad or Kindle, for fear that they would be used by terrorists.

A point of sincere frustration for airline passengers around the world.
