Somewhere near Pittsburgh
About this photo: It's Thematic's transportation week, and there's still time for you to share your own photo. How? Here.I often wonder what we did in the pre-historic era when we flew without moving maps, in-flight Internet and all the other touchstones of a connected planet. I'm guessing we read books, looked out the window or, horrors, spoke to each other.
I'm as much a fan of the moving map as anyone else, but I've got to admit the graphics on some of them are a little funny-looking. Is the 737-700 really this large? I swear at one point it looked like it could darken most of the eastern seaboard with its shadow.
I know, I'm being silly. But keep in mind this was the flight when I had to deal with this idiot. So I hope you'll forgive me for indulging a little in the seatback technology.
Your turn: How do you pass the time when you fly?
