Hmmmm I know I just got told by a few people here, and I
said I missed the episode in question hence why I asked.

OK another topic what about phones being a danger on
aircraft?

And if so why then are the aircraft instruments properly shielded?

they're shielded from outside interference but the hull and insulation,
however many of the instruments are too sensitive to have internal shielding
and that shielding would impair their operations, same as in hospitals. the
phone its self when it hasn't got a strong signal will start searching for
an access point. have you ever heard the speakers of a turned on stereo?
there is a galloping noise emanated, a TV will have lines all through the
screen. imagine what this will do to the auto pilot that was depending on
the sensitive equipment, the autopilot might get back data to say the plane
was flying on a different xy axis and slam the plane into the ground, in a
hospital eeg/heart monitors/other might report the patient as dead and
switch its self off.

as you might know all data is in binary, interference of just one sequence
will interpret a zero reading as a one sequence. that can be disastrous

At work here, I have a mobile phone sitting next to the PC, and in some
circumstances when it rings, if I'm working on an Excel spreadsheet and have
scrolled down the screen, the ringing phone will trigger the sheet to scroll
to the top. No bull, this has happened several times.

What I want to know is why sensitive medical equipment in hospitals is
affected by all mobile phones except those carried by specialists and
senior hospital administrators?
