#MH370 and techology's predicament

Imagine if Outernet Technology was available at the moment when many nations are together hunting for a single flight which went missing. Inaccessibility of communications and network over the vast oceans which is uninhabited, gave way for a gruelling investigation.
Most of us these days use smartphones and most of the #MH370 passengers also would have used them. Just a possibility that one of the 200 odd people would have reached out for help if they were connected. At least the apps which they were using would have vital clues to where they might have been before the batteries ran out on their phones. Hope this amazing invention brings an end to these situations and technology reigns supreme of a well established network.
