FAA puts man who recorded in-flight bird collision on double secret probation

OK, so for all of you who feel entitled to use your electronic devices during take off and landing (including you Alec Baldwin,) you are missing the point. The restriction on using these devices is not based on whether or not it will bring down the plane. The reality is that the flight crew wants your full attention so that, in the event of a major malfunction, they will have your full attention so that they can get you to safety, if at all possible.
