I flew one leg of a USAir flight on a new 737-400(?) last November.  It had 
the latest in multimedia phone/FAX/TV/videogame system in the seatbacks.  I 
didn't try any of it because it was EXPENSIVE.  Every function was $1 or 
more.  Even on a short flight, I think you could blow more than the price of 
your ticket.
