FAA officially warns against using Galaxy Note 7 on airplanes

Samsung's problem just keeps getting worse.

Samsung's slightly explosive new phone is drawing more critical attention, this time from the FAA. The government agency has apparently heard about the Galaxy Note 7 recall, and after some consideration issued a statement. The FAA "strongly advises passengers not to turn on or charge these devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage." According to Gizmodo, the FAA will update its statement as more info becomes available, so even this might not be the end of things.
