Curiously enough, this sprang immediately to mind on this past week's
trip to Austin on Delta. On all four legs (Raleigh-Durham/Atlanta/
Ausit and reverse) the F/As pointedly said that cellphones *could* be
used as long as the loading hatch (!) was open, but then must
"be put in the 'off' position." (Turned off I can see, but what's
the 'off position' for an entire device?)

I was careful not to question, nor mention your name, Rohit; I
didn't want to chance being evicted. :->
