Boeing 787 Dreamliner: Powered by Android, and 69TB of SSD storage

Quote:
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the most-anticipated wide-bodied jet of all time: Boeing has taken a total of 859 orders since 2004, and so far it has only delivered 14 planes. By end of 2013 it intends to ramp up production to 10 units per month, but even then, most customers still have a wait time of between 5 and 10 years. This isn’t a story about the Dreamliner’s composite body, or the fact that it uses 20% less fuel than a 767, though: Inside all 859 of those planes, each and every seat will be outfitted with an Android-powered entertainment system.

5-10 year wait - there'll be something else powering the entertainment by then.

Or knowing large corporations, they'll still be using Android 2.2.

Apart from the entertainment it's a beautiful plane. I feel safer in a Boeing than the other one.

Not sure why each seat has a 256gb SSD, I see no need for that much local storage.
