When you are on a flight going on a trip, the crew on the plane always ask you to shut off your devices before take off, once you are back in the air you may turn them back on. So, what happens when you leave them on. I secretly left on my pad and ipod and tempted fate the lives of everyone on the plane.

It wasn’t really that dramatic, and neither is the answer. The real answer is….to prevent the little things from becoming deadly high-speed projectiles during take off and landing should it get rough. Mostly to protect themselves from litigation.
