12/19/2013, It took a long time, but a couple of weeks back the Federal Aviation Authority finally lifted the rules on use of personal electronic devices during certain stages of the flight such as taxiing, takeoff and landing.

The European Aviation Safety Agency made […]
12/18/2013, The FAA has finally relaxed personal electronic device usage rules during various phases of the flight. Passengers can now use a number of electronic devices such as tablets and e-readers gate to gate. With that done and dusted, passengers now look towards the possibility of in-flight voice calls, and as per recent reports the FCC is certainly looking into it. Now some might say that letting people make voice calls […]
12/18/2013, It seems that there will be another tablet from South Korean manufacturer Samsung that is all set to roll out in the US – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, after we have gotten word that this puppy has already made its peace with the FCC (basically, it cleared the FCC).

12/12/2013, The FAA’s advisory board approved the use of personal electronics on flights a few months ago, which as a result have allowed airlines to relax their rules to allow its passengers to use their personal electronic devices during takeoff and landing.

12/05/2013, Back in October, the Nokia Lumia 1320 was announced. The handset is another 6” smartphone by Nokia but unlike its sibling, the Lumia 1520, the Lumia 1320 will be slightly lower specced, meaning that it will be a tad more affordable for those who don’t really see the need for the latest or greatest hardware in their phones. The handset has recently made its way through the FCC but based […]
12/02/2013, The folks over at the FCC do have an extremely interesting job – they get to play with the latest gizmos that have yet to arrive in the market. Of course, sometimes you do end up with some duds, where these could be difficult to go through, but one still must – just like when you are reviewing a bad game. Asus has a new tablet up their sleeves that […]

11/21/2013, Previously we had reported how the FAA had decided that it would be OK for passengers to use their personal electronic devices (PEDs) during all stages of the flight. However there were limitations, such as the type of device being used (laptops were a no-go), and that calls were not allowed to be placed, although in the case of Southwest Airlines, they will provide WiFi so presumably VoIP is still […]
11/20/2013, Lenovo is certainly no stranger to creating tablets as they recently released its Yoga Tablet, which was released in both an 8-inch and 10-inch version that attaches a rather large 6000mAh and 9000mAh battery on the the tablets, respectively. It looks like the Yoga Tablet won’t be the last tablet Lenovo plans to create as an 8-inch ThinkPad 8 looks to be on the way.
11/18/2013, Smartwatches seem to be growing to be a popular device purchase for many a gadget enthusiast, although it has yet to make that kind of mainstream impact as with a smartphone.
