Southwest Airlines Will Let You Use iMessage Onboard For $2

Southwest is so awesome. You can watch TV for free onboard, the flight attendants aren't jerks, and now you can use iMessage during your flight for just two bucks.

The deal starts today, provided that your device is running iOS 5 or later. Southwest hasn't said how it works, but it's probably as simple as paying for some kind of access code. Southwest says it's working on a similar feature for Android messaging apps for early 2014. Those long holiday flights just got a little less boring. [Southwest Blog h/t @NoelRunkle]
