The FCC has heard both sides of the onboard cellphone and debate and has sided with the quiet side: the agency has decided (for now) that cellphones cannot be used while an airplane is in flight in the US. This is good news if you dreaded the idea of sitting next to some middle management asshole yammering away for an hour about how the goddamned presentation was supposed to be ready by EOD Thursday, where the hell is it? But it’s bad news if you’re a middle management asshole who likes to call people up and bitch about how the goddamned presentation that was supposed to be ready by EOD Thursday isn’t done yet.
The FCC said they may take the issue up at a later date. I hope that’s a much later date.
