Portable Electronic Devices

On a recent flight to Washington, D.C., heard over the intercom system: "Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your Captain speaking. We'll be reaching our cruising altitude of 30,000 feet shortly, at which time I will turn off the fasten seatbelt sign. This will also indicate to you that you may turn on any portable electronic devices you may have. Please note that this does include any hearing aids or pacemakers you may be wearing. Thank you and enjoy the flight."
