As a qualified engineer, if you believe that free-for-all use of consumer electronics on an aircraft is safe, I assume you'll be able to provide technical arguments and references to tests which have shown it to be safe.
As I've said before - I suspect that it can be made safe, and at some point in the not too distant future enough work will have been done to allow more freedom. Until that work is done, however, I've spent far too much time in EM test chambers to just accept that it's safe because Joe Public feels like it should be.
In short - I'm willing to be convinced, but convincing me will require a technical argument and evidence of testing, rather than a series of unsubstantiated assertions with no reasoning to back them up.
Convince me! What is your reasoning, and where is your evidence!
