The original mouse of danger

From the “Dang, how did I miss this memo?” file, this 2008 article highlights the apparent dangers of bluetooth devices – including computer mice – to planes. I came across this in a FaceBook post from a public relations colleague who was ordered to unplug the mouse she was using with her MacBook in mid-flight (her touch pad was malfunctioning). When she (a road warrior) protested that she had never heard of this ban before, the flight attendant directed her attention to four-point type in the in-flight magazine detailing this regulation.

Son of a gun!
