No Haven for Conference Attendees - Opening Keynote

Even if mobile devices prove to be safe (and there is still considerable concern here), from an interruption standpoint making them freely available during flights is a terrible idea, infringing on the rights of OTHER passengers:

"With pilots approved to use iPads as flight manuals in their cockpits, and the FAA’s own studies finding 'no evidence saying [wireless] devices can’t interfere with a plane, and… no evidence saying that they can,' FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has asked the FAA to ease up on restrictions against wireless device use on planes.
