In one of those completely brilliant business moves that really endear you to your employees, budget UK Irish airline Ryanair has decided to ban its staff from charging their cellphones while at work, saying that it's an "inappropriate use of office time". It's one thing if they don't want people making personal calls on their cellphones during the work day because they want to keep productivity up (they keep us handcuffed to our laptops here at Engadget HQ), but don't front that someone plugging in a charger is somehow equivalent to slacking off or stealing electricity. Because even though they're a budget operation, we think they'll live.
