DNS Issue

It was a DNS issue for sure, www.facebook.com did not resolve (m.facebook.com did resolve, though, that's why it would still work on mobiles). This is what I got at the time of the outage:

Lumia?

I hope Nokia Spain realises that 'lumia' means prostitute in Spanish.

Although considering that Nokia has let M$ software to run free on their hardware... it couldn't be more appropriate! :D

IATA: this iPad could BRING DOWN A PLANE

slith
WTF?

Not the traveller's responsibility.

If the interference a portable device can down a plane, this could be used maliciously and the airlines and air-plane manufacturers should use the standard (effective) security measures. For example, blast-proof aircraft luggage containers, bullet-proof door to cockpit and, in this case, properly shielded internal aircraft wiring.

Banning electronic equipment will be as effective as banning liquids, or forcing passengers to remove their shoes/belts.
