    This Samsung device was recalled and is no longer serviceable – and take off and landings are NO time to be playing games Alec Baldwin. AA get with it and use the iPad throughout – this Samsung machine is crap, and for what I pay for your First Class tickets I should get the best – not this piece of crap.
