Nick Bilton on the antiquated rules for fliers:
>Surely if electronic gadgets could bring down an airplane, you can be sure that the Department of Homeland Securityand 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 aniPad or Kindle, for fear that they would be used by terrorists.

I don’t disagree with him, but I feel like trying to change this rule is akin to banging your head against a concrete wall with steel reinforcements.
