    Interesting. Wonder why they would do it close to the busiest airport in the world. Don't most planes fly using GPS with the autopilot?

    I think the airports will be fine, they don't depend on any one technology. Might slow things down a bit that that would be about it.

    I think Uber will probably come to a crashing halt though, and I pity the fools that follow Waze directions when it's jammed.

    Since it's the Navy, you would think they could do this in the middle of the Pacific, where no one would care.

    They said it started two days ago?

    My GPS is working...hmmm. Maybe my iPhone has anti-jamming capabilities that I don't know about...
