    Funny you mention that. A lead story here in the last couple of days is about a high profile actor who recently hit a parked car, drove off the road, through a fence, corner of a house and then into the neighbours' living room. He is currently nursing cuts and bruises and awaiting the decision to press charges by police. He was 'texting' on his cell phone at the time of the accident.

    This is one of those funny quandrys in the US, the FCC has ruled jamming illegal, but they have no police, so someone would have to actually see you jamming and call the police to arrest you. How may cops do you think are going to take this seriously? Thye will probably tell you to turn it off, that is if you are caught or are dumb enough to display the jammer. I would simply place it inside a coat pocket or fanny pack and let it rip. I think I am getting one....lol...it is not illegal in Mx....

    The FCC seems to do just fine with the police if they have corporate interests to protect: http://www.freakradio.org/

    It would be great if they could rig those cam/fones to capture the expression on the driver's face at the instant that he realizes that the truck in front him has come to a sudden stop while he was distracted by chatting on the phone.

    It would make an interesting photo essay.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    You would be surprised at the prevalence of cell phones in Mexico.

    Apart from their use in schools and public change rooms, I'm happy that cell phone cameras are so prevalent - they're going to hurt digital P&S camera sales before too long. That will mean that only low res digi pics will be seen by most people, making our well crafted prints appear that much better again.
