Are we getting a little too smart?

The proposed architecture of the 787 is different from that of existing production (and retrofitted) airplanes. It allows new kinds of passenger connectivity to previously isolated data networks connected to systems that perform functions required for the safe operation of the airplane. Because of this new passenger connectivity, the proposed data network design and integration may result in security vulnerabilities from intentional or unintentional corruption of data and systems critical to the safety and maintenance of the airplane.

I'll surely take my Joystick and throttle with me, if I'm going to fly with this plane. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
