iPhone better than ground control, National Weather Service

Readers at FlyerTalk are outraged at the new iPhone commercial featuring a pilot who uses his iPhone to check the weather and inform the control tower that things were clearing up and he should be able to fly. I’m actually getting kind of tired of these “real person” ads, actually. Not sure why, but they don’t sit right with me. Oh well. Now you’ll know what happens when your flight takes off into the heart of a thunderstorm because your pilot checked SimpleWeather on the runway.
