"If the passenger with the IPhone would be kind enough to use it to check the weather at our alternate, calculate our fuel burn due to being rerouted around the storms, call the dispatcher to arrange our release, and then make a phone call to the nearest Air Traffic Control center to arrange our timely departure amongst the other aircraft carrying passengers with IPhones, then we will be more than happy to depart. Please ring your call button to advise the Flight Attendant and your fellow passengers when you deem it ready and responsible for this multi-million dollar aircraft and its passengers to safely leave."

The screencast for Jole Spolsky’s FogBugs is definitely one of the most amusing product demonstrations out there. So much better then their competition 37 Signals’ BaseCamp in which Jason will put you to sleep with his demonstrations.
