I understand that you fly often, and know the rules. It is an FAA regulations that they make that speech. Not everybody flies as often as you do, and some people need to hear that speech. If you know what to do, then don't listen to the speech. As far as turning your IPOD off. Electronic devices being turned off are an FAA regulation as well. The airlines don't do this stuff just to inconvenience people. If someone from the FAA is onboard the airplane, observing, which does happen, and the airline doesn't make the safety speech, or allows passengers to keep cell phones, etc. on, then they will receive massive fines, etc.
