Is there any new rule about taking laptop on-board flight?

Someone said, on any flight into the UK all electrical goods must be stowed in the hold, no laptop, ipod etc in hand luggage.

Anyone know anything about this? I googled, but found nothing. How about outward flight?

Just returned from Rome on a flight where several people were using their laptops during the flight.

My partner is an airline pilot. According to him there are extra security precautions being taken due to recent happenings but there is no ban on the normal type of electronic equipment that people take on aircraft. It may very from airline to airline and from flight to flight - remember that the pilot is in complete control and has last say on who, or what, is taken on board his flight.

This is what Ryanair says but follow VoGtm advice.

'Mobile Phones and Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs) equipped with wireless phone connections may be carried only in cabin baggage but must be switched off once the aircraft doors are closed for departure. These items must not be used during flight.'

Mesolithic, thanks. According to your experience, nothing new from last week.
