 Yet so goes California, so goes the nation. There's a reason 40 million people live there.
Woo hoo! I'm soon to be $40 richer!
No.Two things. First, planes are already designed to withstand any electronic interference of significance - most likely from their own electronics. Second, consumer electronics are tested and certified against emitting interference.The fact is that the regulation never had any basis. It was only a "just in case", which is no basis for decision making whatsoever.
Uh oh. It's only a matter of minutes before we get the posts of "better safe than sorry" and "the real reason for the rule is to prevent injury from potential flying objects". Anyone wanna be the first idiot to make these claims?

There are very advanced statistical models which show how to price consumer goods to optimize revenue, profit, and unit sales. This isn't something some anonymous person on an Internet forum is going to know anywhere close to Apple.
 That's exactly the problem with these reports on the cost of the bill of materials. People mistake them for the total cost of the item. There are lots of additional costs. R&D and software development investments, which are amortized among all devices. Future software upgrades, which are accrued. Free bundled software like iWork and iLife. Below the line marketing. Logistics. Packaging. And one of the biggest - tooling costs. That's another misunderstanding people have....
