I once knew a Captain that loved to play his Game Boy on the Flight Deck
enroute.  I never once saw or heard of interference.  I have read of some
situations though.

A PC magazine did a study a while back and measured the emmisions from
laptops.  So there must be a way to detect unfriendly games.

Although if a computer or game is causing problems with avionics the a/c
is at fault.  The a/c should be able to operate in a very "loud" radio
enviorment(i.e.Thunderstorm, Solar activity).  Loose or frayed connections
to the radios are most often the culprit.
