Good news.  Politico is reporting the breaking news that there will NOT be a ban on laptops on US-EU flights:

The U.S. today opted not to introduce a ban on bringing laptops into the cabins of flights to the U.S. from Europe, sources told POLITICO.

“No ban,” a Commission official said. “Both sides have agreed to intensify technical talks and try to find a common solution.”

Kudos to DHS for reaching the right decision.

[UPDATE:  Or maybe not.  Today' this story from Fox News quotes the Department as saying that the Politico story is "absolutely wrong."  Now I am really confused.]
