One step closer to using your cellphone on your next flight?

This final note today, in which we give thanks for the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Federal Communications Commission voted 3 to 2 today to have a look at whether cellphones ought to be allowed on airplanes.

We’ve known that’s been coming for a while now.

And the head of the FCC said even if they do approve cellphone use, it’ll be up to individual airlines as to whether or not they’ll allow them. 

Here’s where the Transportation Department comes in.

Secretary Anthony Fox rode to the rescue today. He said his department will have the final say, thank you very much.

So…there’s hope yet.
