Airplanes and Electronics

Everytime you get on an airplane, you always have to turn off your electronic devices because "it will interfere with the planes" or whatever dumb reason they have. Nobody really knows why you have to turn them off. Well I just read an article that explains how that is just dumb. Airplanes are designed to withstand 100 volts of electrical interference. Most devices put out considerably less than 1 volt of interference.

I would like to get a plane full of people to all leave their phones on, radio and all, and see if they notice any interference or if the plane crashes. Need to test those theories of interference.

Anyway, here is the link to said article. Disruptions: Norelco on Takeoff? Fine. Kindle? No.
