Tests Cast Doubt on FAA Restrictions on Kindle and iPad

Nick Bilton:

The F.A.A. does allow some electronics during takeoff and landing. Portable voice recorders, hearing aids, heart pacemakers and electric shavers are permitted during all times of a flight.

I’ve sat next to and near some weird people on airplanes, but never anyone using an electric shaver during takeoff or landing.
