JetBlue, Delta allow passengers to use devices at takeoff

Airlines JetBlue and Delta have announced that they will be allowing passengers to use electronic devices between the departure and arrivals gates, including at takeoff, according to Bloomberg. Shortly after the FAA changed the rules governing the use of such devices in a plane, JetBlue corporate communications manager Morgan Johnson posted an image of passengers armed with smartphones to Facebook, claiming its first flight under the new policy has flown successfully.

Instagram starts advertising in user feeds

Instagram has started adding advertising to user's feeds, as it attempts to earn revenue. The first sponsored image, claimed by USA Today to be for a watch from fashion brand Michael Kors, has apparently received a negative reception from users. Advertising, estimated to bring in $340 million per year, is shown with the word "Sponsored" where the time stamp is usually located, with the image able to be hidden using the "..." link underneath.
