The downsides of inflight connectivity


You are plugged straight into the biggest surveillance network in the world and you are not behind a firewall.

All the data transits satellite networks that are subject to US Operator Licencing 'conditions'

All the Ground stations are plugged straight into the NSA (or GCHQ)

All the traffic to your normal online services can be 'spoofed' to force your client software into disclosing more than you thought you had intended. Most clients can be 'persuaded' to unload their Address books, Bookmarks and Browsing histories in full.

Having a special phone for flying is a not bad idea. Synch it with nothing important, ever.
