Here Comes The Mobile Phone Backlash Over Possible Terrorism Connections
from the uh-oh dept
It was only a matter of time before we started hearing stories about how, just because mobile phones might be used by terrorists, they should be blocked. Thankfully, Russell Buckley rips apart the guy's argument, which doesn't seem to go beyond "mobile phones might be used by terrorists and that's bad." There's no description of exactly what it is about mobile phones that make them likely terrorist tools, and even the "expert" in question notes that if you blocked these bad mobile phone uses, terrorists would still attack. So, then, why exactly should we be blocking mobile phone signals if it doesn't actually do anything to make people safer?
