Default Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

I'm sure you've heard about this by now.

It happened on the 7th of March, and here is what we know so far.

Any thoughts/comments/theories/etc.?

I only just heard about this today, but I just read that apparently someone is able to get a call through to one of the passengers, just no one is picking up.

Could it be some sort of Bermuda Triangle-type thing? That recently just arose and that we don't know about?

Seemingly jossed, although nothing is quite certain yet.

Oh good, I'm not the only person who thought of Lost. Except I've never even seen the show.

Not sure if this belongs in serious business. There are a multitude of reasons this could have happened; technological failure, negligence, violent capture. Who knows.

I haven't been following this news too closely since I don't have a TV (and all the public TVs are on CNN which seems to be reporting conspiracy theories rather than facts) but it seems to me like the information the public has seems to change drastically every few days. They seem to have changed their search area a few times already.

At first I just assumed it was a crash but then information came out that made me think it was a hijacking, but now Australia says they found wreckage which might be from it? If that's true it might be a crash again. (Although, I suppose it could be both)
