Are Flight 370 investigators searching in the right place?

More than threr weeks into the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and still no sign of the missing aircraft.

On Friday, the search area shifted hundreds of miles to the northeast of the previous search zone.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: New search area, rugged deep-ocean terrain

Objects were pulled from the waters over the weekend, but they weren't debris from the plane.

There have been multiple search zones since the plane disappeared 25 days ago. Are investigators searching in the right place?

Wing commander, Andy Scott has the answer. He is with the New Zealand Defense Forces and has a key operational role in the search for Flight 370.

    Why has no mention of cell phone, air phone, emails or even passengers using laptop to update a business spreadsheet for instance, been mentioned in investigation? Surely someone in 7 hours of flight used some electronic device on that plane. If there was a nefarious act, were passengers unaware, did someone collect devices, gas the passengers or some other way of preventing communications? Hard to believe that no one made an effort to communicate to someone. Even Flight 93 passengers contacted people when hijacked. Seems to me someone could track the time a passenger updated and Excel spreadsheet for instance to tell when he was alive, etc.

    Has anyone ever checked to see if the plane #370 had enough gas/glide to reach the Great Sandy Desert? I don't have Twitter so. Could it still have reach land. Also is our relationship with Malaysia going to change due to this crisis once it is over? When it comes to changes on passenger airliners, I don't think the ponder system or "pinger" if you will, should not be allowed to be turned off if the auto-pilot is on.
