SMINTAIR allows smoking on flights and treats its customers like customers
By the way, did you know that the NAZIs also sported a huge Anti-Smoking campaign? Yes, they did and the one we experience now carries exactly the same insignia.
Another great idea from consumerist.com: "Now if only someone would open an airline that makes parents stuff their wailing infants in pet carriers and shove them in baggage".

Nokia 770 conclusion after a few months of use
-The biggest flaw a found until today, is that the LCD is not reflective, so it is nearly unusable in bright sunlight. If you need to use your Nokia in the sun, get a sun screen, umbrella or some other shade for it!
-The lack of a real SD slot is bad, but as I use the Nokia 770 mostly to access information via the internet connection, it is no big problem for me. But given the fact, that Nokia now uses MMC, RS-MMC and microSD in various phones, a SD slot would be great to be able to read and write to any Nokia flash memory card currently in existence.
-The mini USB port provides no standard USB power, so you can´t use standard USB peripherals like mice and keyboards.
-The mini power plug is not very reliable, the one on my power adapter is already bent and the "old" Nokia standard plug is available nearly everywhere in the world (solar charger, car charger, USB charger, crancing charger...). If they would include the CA-44 adapter it would be less of a hassle, but why change a working good standard?
-Bluetooth 1 is too slow to fully use HSDPA. Bluetooth2 with EDR would help a lot.
+800*480 LCD: after a few days with WVGA resolution, all the small PDA and cell phone screens just suck! For some applications a screen rotate function would be very convenient, especially for reading PDFs.
All in all: after using the VGA resolution HTC Universal/MDA pro for some time and now the Nokia770 my palm Treo650 is mainly used as a phone and PDA (address, calendar) and for reading of short texts on the road. Even my PowerBook 15" is getting less and less use, as the Nokia 770 is now my main information gathering device. Now let us see, how the Sony Vaio UX Series will be in comparison.

T3 does not understand the Nokia 770
Surely you can check email on any mobile phone, even on an old Ericsson T39, but there is a huge difference, if you can just see the subject of your mail, or the complete mail including formatting, tables and pictures.
Using a PDA as an eBook reader is possible, but once you read a long book on the gorgeous 800*480 LCD of the Nokia 770, you don´t want to go back to a screen where you see every single huge pixel. And so called PDA-functions like address book, calendar and to do lists live perfectly happy in your mobile phone, which nearly everybody carries nowadays.
And using a Sony PSP with 480 x 272 pixel resolution without touchscreen for web surfing can only be a recommendation for masochists.
