...How long do you think it will take for laptops to be banned completely from airplanes?
I'm at the point in my life where I fly around three round trips a year. This year so far, I've flown to Baltimore and San Diego for conventions, and I'll be flying home to Ann Arbor in December.
If I have to endure five to six hours of air travel without books, laptop, iPod, or even water, I may not be able to fly anymore. I cannot and will not spend that much time doing nothing at all - that is tantamount to torture for me.
