Breaking news this morning, Alec Baldwin kicked off of American 
Airlines flight for refusal to turn his iPad off; was playing Word 
for Friends (a Scrabble-like game). Alec is quoted as saying "We 
weren't even moving yet!"

That's from memory, I hope I nailed the particulars correctly. Alec 
apparently sent a few derogatory Tweets about AA and its flight 
attendants, but I don't remember those well enough to try quoting them.

iPads do not include cellphone capabilities so were would this rank 
on the capriciousness scale?
