Kevin Martin, I’ve never met you but I LOVE you! USA Today reports that Mr. Martin, the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, will recommend not lifting the FCC’s current ban on inflight cell phone use due to “concerns about interference with cell phone calls on the ground and a ‘lack of interest’ by both wireless providers and the general public.” And thank you general public! It’s so rare that I agree with you!

Remember the days when you could sit at the airport waiting for a flight and not have to be constantly surrounded by people yacking away on their cell phones? Flying is bad enough as it is. I think I would have to kill myself if I had to listen to cell phone conversations the entire flight also.

Apparently several wireless providers say they may still try to proceed with offering wireless internet connections for airline passengers. And I’m all for that.
