The TSA is prepared to eliminate any efforts of potential terrorists to know what's going on during a flight. That of course means us too. A new TSA rule for international flights could mean asking passengers to stow personal items, turn off electronic equipment and remain seated - at anytime during the flight. So, how do we stay connected? We have all this technology and no where to log in.
Please don't think I'm anti-technology when I say, even with all the new technology that helps us with and through travel, it's travel itself that keeps us connected. I'm also not saying to not fight for and push for our rights as upright citizens to have access to our daily communication tools. But, in the face of a temporary issue, we could try a different approach.
The 'tool' next to you in that seat who keeps taking over the arm rest might have access to communication on a travel idea, site or place you have never entertained. Go ahead and log-in and see what humanity has to offer. Course I believe in balance so a little humanity, a little technology goes a long way. I should have access to both and for my own sanity, I should access both.
So, what do you do when you can't get at your tools?
