What Makes a Laptop?

The Yankees' ban on the iPad has been enacted, like its ban on laptops, to prevent fans from "getting distracted and getting hit in the face by a ball."  Doesn't any smartphone provide a similar distraction?  If my smartphone lets me watch YouTube videos, and the game is a ten-run blowout, I might end up watching the YouTube videos instead of the game. I should be able to waive any liability the Yankees would have for me watching stolen clips from Family Guy instead of Kansas City's at-bats in the eighth inning.
