What does a turned off transponder say about the fate of Flight 370?

Hours after Flight 370's transponder went dark, the plane reportedly continued to transmit information. What factors could have caused that to happen? Anderson discussed it with MIT professor of aeronautics and astronautics John Hansman and former U.S. Department of Transportation Inspector General Mary Schiavo.

    Why are the transponders not hardwired on passenger planes so they cannot be turned off?
