|Subject:||The misconceptions regarding interference|
Fears of intereference between consumer electronics -- even wireless devices and cellphones -- and aviation electronics are overblown. There is a possibility that some devices might interfere with an airplains communication/navigation gear. Maybe. It'd be easy enough to test that out and only ban the (probably very few) devices that actually interfere, but between regulatory turf issues between the FCC and FAA, airlines' fear of lawsuits and (probably) the potential for deriving additional revenue from 'airplane safe' devices/services have prevented anyone from doing so.
