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?
