I can confirm this. The VLC media player for iOS will play my itunes music, mp3's, and movies from my upnp media server, on both iphones and ipads.

I've got a 16gb iphone and ipad. Only using half the avail space with lots of apps. Of course, i don't download my movies or much music to it. Better to stream it.

Neil noticed early on that when he gave long winded answers to interview questions, it would be highly edited to fit whatever show it was for. So he started practicing giving short and succinct answers to specific topics. Once he started doing that, his complete answer would make it to the final product, with minimal editing needed.

>As a pilot, takeoff is not at all a sensitive time of flight

Actually, takeoff is a critical part of the flight. If something goes wrong, you're low, slow, and the runway is *behind* you. However if you're already in the pattern (and at pattern alt) you could have an engine failure anywhere on the downwind leg and still make it back around to the runway.

The real question is whether or not 300 or so devices turned on affect the planes navigation systems. I seem to remember a study done a while back indicating the potential for problems (if any) was due more to the screens used by smart phones/ebook readers/etc, than wireless or anything else.
