On a side note, 90 minutes LA to San Diego? That doesn't sound right - you'll hardly be up in the air before you're descending again, you might get the all-clear (no electronics use of any type for takeoff and landing) for a few minutes if you're lucky. Colorado Springs to Denver is the shortest commercial flight I've ever done, it's not much shorter, and you never get to cruising altitude.

Not sure if useful now, but I just found this article on Wi-Fi availability on U.S. domestic flights. Probably not terribly useful, but if you feel it's necessary to change your L.A.-San Diego flight last minute to get Wi-Fi for an extra hour-and-a-half, it's worth a look.

Exactly.

Well I don't know if my 3DS is going to be charged by the time we touch ground after our 19 hour trip...

Other people have already covered electronics usage on planes, but I just thought I'd point out that these days, planes with entertainment units on the back of each seat (i.e. many international flights) offer powered USB ports. If you take a USB charging cable, you may be able to charge your 3DS in flight.

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.
