"Guess, where I am"

Starting next week and over the next few months, several United States airlines will test Internet service on their planes – News.

That's progress, but as usual, there's a price. As many people as there are who are enthusiastic about keeping their connections aloft, surely there must be an equal number who appreciated the brief hours of electronic abstinence imposed by airline travel, the enforced opportunity to put the keyboard away and do something analog, like reading one of those low-tech paper books, or pondering the questions of the universe, or even something as bold as emptying the brain and quieting the mind. Sure, you'll still have the choice to unplug; you just won't have the built-in excuse. Still, these pilot programs are the leading edge of an inevitability.

Can’t imagine someone sending IMs up to the cockpit saying stuff like, "I'm in ur cabin, messing with ur frequencies."
