Up In The Air

Ladies and gentlemen, if your book is not made of paper, please put it down now.”
Man, this must annoy Kindle users to no end. My understanding of the technology involved -- and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong -- is that if you aren't actually using the whispernet or whatever it's called to download a book, the Kindle isn't doing anything more than a digital watch, or an actual book made of paper, to fuck with whatever the plane doesn't want to have fucked.

Ahh, but you try explaining this to a flight attendant.

If any device like this could harm an aircraft, we'd be seeing terrorists sitting quietly ni 23C with a bag full of them left on.

Oh, and we'd have dozens of crashes a day from forgetful others who leave their cell phones on...
