Pilots use laptops as well...
And they are going to ben these as well? The trend now is to have this "electronic flight bag" (Boeing term) travel with the pilot instead of all the paper stuff they would normally carry.
If this DOES go through, and pilots aren't exempt, it might be very interesting.
As for things in the hold, what about Galaxy Note 7's that were the subject of "flame on" switches a while back? In the hold? Not good!
