you could use your iPod during takeoff and landing? The airlines could still maintain safety by implementing a Bluetooth-based system that will interrupt what you're doing on your iPod whenever the captain makes an announcement. They could also make it so the captain can shut off all iPhones and iTouches in an emergency. Here's how it would work: you turn on your iTouch, turn Bluetooth on, connect it to the system, then the iTouch sees it's connected to a safety system and will listen for a PA or shutdown command. I realize it would involve a firmware update from Apple & that it would cost the airlines. Still, it would be nice to have.
