Snake Oil

Nick Bilton has a great post discussing electronic devices on airplanes:

A year ago, when I first asked Les Dorr, a spokesman for the F.A.A., why the rule existed, he said the agency was being cautious because there was no proof that device use was completely safe. He also said it was because passengers needed to pay attention during takeoff.

It gets quite good from there.
