why the 'no electronics on planes' ban is a crock

it would be good to allow computers on board the whole time, but i hope they don't allow cell phones on board or all these obnoxious people will be chatting away (i suppose including me). no peace and quiet.

technically, the problem with cellphones is with cellular towers on the ground, not with "affecting the on board navigation" as the flight-attendant always parrots.
