a rationale reason for asking folks to turn the things off is because
the airlines don't want people to be distracted during take-off and
landing, when most things tend to go wrong. if they'd just come out

I thought that we had to turn the things off just because of the interaction
of the equipment in the airplane during take off ands landing.
What's important is not simplicity or complexity, but how you bridge the two.
