Since the attempted terrorist attack over the holidays it appears that using electronics on you next flight to the USA will be restricted.  It's not guaranteed that you won't be able to use any of your gadgets, but it doesn't look promising.  Make sure you know the rules before you pull out your new DSi on your way down to CES, or you may get arrested for trying to have some fun. 

Pretty soon you won't be allowed to wear underwear on a plane.

Sure, punish the regular non-terrorist passengers because security can't keep the terrorists off the planes.

That is an awesome picture there on the bottom!

The sad reality of the situation is all they have to say is "in the interest of national security / public safety we are implementing these new policies" take a look at what happened to Kevin Smith.  It is amazing that social media (Twitter, facebook etc) really is a powerful tool.
