Do You Worry About Gadget Interference on Airplanes?

What's with all the gadget hate lately? First Nick Nolte blamed his house fire on a broken printer and now Qantas is investigating the role of laptops and other personal gadgets in a recent scary altitude drop.

Now I'm not one to say "there's nothing to fear," since I can be pretty paranoid about this stuff myself. I heed the instructions to turn things off and keep them off when I'm flying, but I know that there's not really hard evidence saying that personal electronics definitely cause plane crashes and operating malfunctions.

It's an uneasy conclusion, I know, but I feel like you have to just trust that you'll be OK on a plane. Better be safe than sorry and turn your gadgets off when the nice flight attendants tell you to. How do you feel about it?
