nocell_08-07-08-thumb-300x200A recent Department of Transportation survey finds that half of US resident airline travelers say they would be ok with having cell phones allowed on airlines flights, even if we knew they do not interact negatively with the plane’s electronics.

Really? I mean I have two cell phones (on a Palm) and a laptop that can connect to the internet pretty much anywhere. I love being connected. I would love to have the internet on airplanes, but please oh please do not allow phones. Do people really need to talk on a phone that bad? Can people not wait a few hours? Should planes maybe have a talking and non-talking sections?
