Texting proves positive for transportation

airline0406.jpgWhile texting and driving can often be a fatal mix, texting and airlines may be teaming up soon. JetBlue founder, David Neeleman, announced that "text communications could prove attractive but agrees with the misgivings of many U.S. airline executives about the onboard use of cell phones for voice calls." In other words, silence is golden in confined spaces, but that doesn't have to kill off conversation altogether. JetBlue will explore options in no-voice messaging soon. While it may be reminiscent of using a "5 inch voice" in grade school, any added freedom in a cramped coach seat is welcome.

Update: Looks like Qantas is doing the same.
