For anyone that has ever been on a plane, you have been told when approved electronics devices were permitted for use. Takeoff and landing were boring times for all that didn't have a book or someone to talk to, but that is expected to change later this week. The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to relax the rules on what devices are allowed during these two periods of the flight, but mobile phone calls and text messages should still be off the table. The rule changes will apply to all airlines and should be implemented some time in 2014.
