The FAA has allowed airline passengers to use some mobile devices during takeoff and landing. But they still want you to shut off your tablet during the all-important safety message before takeoff. The Select USA conference is taking place in Washington. The goal is to convince investors from across the world that the U.S. is an attractive place to invest. A report out today shows more people are quitting their jobs. Is this more confidence in the job market? Or about healthcare mobility?
