Wow

Had to Google it, link here:

Yeah, I wasn't going to bring up the fact that we are supposed to turn all electronics off. I'm guessing its similar to a hospital where they say to do the same with phones. I'm sure there are some machines that could be effected but unless I'm in the ICU with some one then my phone is no different than a doctor's phone. I had one very mad once because he said I had to turn mine off, then his rang and I said "I will when you do ". I'd love to know why it has to be done on the plane though.
