Electronic devices impossible to switch off

Post by goblin on Tue 4 Feb 2014 - 12:21

Hi guys,

Ryanair is asking us to switch off all electronic devices during take-off and landing, and most of us happily ignore that by leaving their electronic watches on, and then the staff never cares. I think this rule is silly and needs to change or go away. If there was someone travelling with an electronic pacemaker, this rule would be the same as saying "can you please kill yourself because we can't be bothered working out the difference between airplane mode and switched off state".

And if you thought your Kindle switches off when you hold the power button, you're wrong - it only goes to sleep. It's clearly visible if you jailbreak it - even after the screen goes blank, you can wake your kindle again and the uptime stays at whatever it was.

So it's an un-enforceable rule. Did no-one really notice it so far?
