Mobile Cellphone Jamming and the Law

I thought it was illegal in all of Europe, but the Vatican have jammed mobile signals in the Sistine Chapel to stop septuagenarian tweeting Cardinals from contacting the outside world!

"Jamming devices in the Sistine Chapel should block all electronic communication and anyone tweeting would in any case risk being excommunicated."

Many of them are into modern communication methods, but not modern lifestyle thinking.

You could always ask the Vatican if they don't need theirs anymore now that they have got a new Pope.

They were covering it on 5Live last evening and asked a spokes person if this new world Pope would herald new era changes.

Her answer was that the Vatican takes the century view rather than the day or week view, any major changes of the type that we've mentioned recently might just be ripe for open discussion by the turn of the next century!

It is these sorts of stories that bring out the worst journalism. NBC asked a lung expert to comment on the pope's health even though he had never seen him.

The giveaway is when he says the pope is lean. The 'lean' Pope Francis.

Meanwhile, with much less media coverage a far more important appointment is made.
