No Laptop Ban ... For Now
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.]
