Agree PP.

From my understanding blue tooth is not used in any circuitry on a plane.  Its all hard wired.  Sounds a bit sus to me

wireless isn't necessarily bluetooth, of course.

no idea. i'd love to know if anyone uses steer by wire. i reckon they'd keep it quiet if they did.

there's no production cars with steer by wire - but a few forklift/tractors I think. Been a few concept cars with it - might be wrong but I think there was one in the late 80's early 90's with it - designed so that the input componentry was modular and therefore could be plugged into either side of the car - or even in the backseat.

Those huge mining trucks have "steer by wire" I believe.

I think I saw something on TV once that showed when the trucks when down the mine, a computer would steer the truck down the hole via sensors on the walls of the mine. So the driver did not have to do any driving until the truck was out of the mine and zipping around in the open.

this is actually a very difficult topic as it is proven that electro magnetic frequency can cause (wired electronics) to mulfuction, yet when put into test, they could rarely replicate the exact problem afterwards.

I remember we were rebuilding a server for a small business once (ages ago) and they run this arcatel dsl modem, the bloody thing wouldn't work; line test was fine, different modem same thing, and it seems like it only doesn't work when the store owner was talking on the phone. And as it turned out, whenever the cordless phone is about 2 metres near the modem, the modem loses sync (happens on the acractel, dlink, didn't effect  the belkin funny enough), and they changed the phone, and the problem went away.

few senior techs (cisco licensed) couldn't explain this and just one of those things. maybe ghosts?
