Please Airlines - Enough With The Fear Stories

On a flight this week the flight attendant stated that all electronic devices that transmit are banned from use throughout the flight INCLUDING GPS devices.

I understand their argument that some devices that transmit might jam the aircraft's radio signals even though this is unlikely.

I totally reject their claims that a GPS receiver has any chance of causing such interference.

The plane is banketed with the signals from the GPS satellites already. The GPS receiver does nothing to attract this electromagnetic energy toward the plane.

"Micro Loans" Meet "Micro Learning" - Video Training

PeepCode Screen Casts


What to learn Ruby On Rails Development as I am doing? What a great idea to pay $9 per hour-long video instruction.

They have something of value that I want and thus I am willing to pay for it.
