    Seeing how technology plays a greater and greater part in people's lives, we will see much more of such "innovations" coming to a plane near you pretty soon. It's important that people see a real enhancement in the future in their travels, technology shouldn't simply be used for the sake of it IMHO, it can be too intrusive especially on longer flights, ie. mobile phones.

    My guess is that the new rule will be e-readers, tablets and phones (and other items similar size) are okay gate-to-gate with airplane mode still on.

    Gives me some hope that UA can still make Ch 9 work for practical purposes via an in-plane intranet once they start tearing out the in-seat AVOD, although I am not holding my breath.
