Sorry, all you people who want to talk on cellphones in airplanes

Sorry, all you people who want to talk on cellphones in airplanes: According to some new research, “cellphones can impact cockpit devices.” While I have no doubt there will be some future research (sponsored by the cellphone industry) that will prove the opposite, this survey should be enough to postpone for years any FAA decision to change the current rule prohibiting cellphone usage on planes. While others who have commented on this blog are looking forward to the day they can chat away during a flight, I am dreading that possibility as I have no desire to sit next to individuals having long conversations asking people to “guess where I’m calling from?” (In-flight wifi and Skype will provide a geek workaround for those desperate to talk to the terrestrial bound.)
