I would very much enjoy this.
I like those headphones in the picture,.........
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
We have this same argument in the medical field. It's believed that cell phone interference can interfere with medical equipment, or telemetry items (wireless) that are used to measure patients vital signs while they're on the move. The best I've ever heard from anyone is certain devices caused interference when the cell phone was placed inches away, and that was only one case. So there's not a whole lot of evidence saying cell phone can really disrupt any type of electric or magnetic field.
However, take a wireless device (such as a baby monitor) and put your cell phone next to it and you can see it distorts the signal. I was actually using an old rabbit ears antenna the other day, and every time my cell phone got close to the antenna the tv would lose reception.
So obviously, there is some issues with proximity of the mobile device next to the device in question, but everything i've seen relates this to data, not to the electro magnetic field generated by the device. In the end, i'd rather be safe and say keep them off, then cause an issue and see someone die.
I am all for taking this rule out of effect.
I support this being taken out, however, I would only want it removed until signs turned up of interference with the devices. It makes me confused that this rule was put in almost entirely based on rumors...
Well it's was banned because you have radiowaves messing with other radiowaves. It's inevitable. Sensitive data being transmitted over a wireless frequency can easily be manipulated by interference, therefore you get something completely wrong. I've seen telemetry in hospitals shut off when a nurse turned on a microwave the floor beneath the server room, or when a fire alarm panel had some shitty capacitors that were causing a huge electro magnetic interference in that one room alone.
So we know what they're capable of. The real question is there actually any technology on an airplane that could be damage or rendered inaccurate by a simple electro magnetic field. I don't think so, and even mythbusters pretty much busted this myth a few years ago.
