Dumb rules are about to be dead.
According to Andy Pasztor of the WSJ, the FAA has drafted a revision to its rules banning gadget usage during takeoffs and landings of commercial flights.
In the new rules, gadgets like Kindles and iPads will be allowed, even after the airplane's doors are closed and the plane hasn't reached 10,000 feet yet.
It doesn't sound like rules are going to change for cellphones.
The rule change won't be official until at least September.
