Silly Government Regulation: Turning off Cell Phones in Airplanes

I know a former FCC commissioner who tells me that no one that he knows believes this. Here is a news report that I saw today.

Myth: If you use a cell phone while flying, the signal can interfere with the plane's compass and navigation systems, possibly leading to a crash.

. . . More recent studies by the NASA and the FAA have found no instances where a cell phone caused a crash, although some pilots claimed otherwise.
