+ - Congress to ban VOIP on airplanes

Submitted by Ececheira
Ececheira (86172) writes "The U.S. House of Representatives Transportation & Infrastructure (T&I) Committee has taken Representative Peter A. DeFazio's (OR) bill from the last Congress (HR.5788) and inserted it as a section into the FAA Re-authorization Act of 2009 (HR.915) in this Congress, that if enacted into law, would permanently ban all inflight voice communication services and prevent passengers from using their own mobile devices to send and receive calls. The proposed provision (Section 423) would permanently ban aircraft passenger voice communications service using a mobile or wireless device and would deny passengers the convenience and choice of connectivity that consumers in other countries enjoy today."

Sigmund Freud is alleged to have said that in the last analysis the entire field of psychology may reduce to biological electrochemistry.
