Time To Jam Cell Phones

from the big-business dept

There are a bunch of companies working on various technologies to stop cell phones from ringing in public places. Some of them try to jam cell phones (which is currently illegal in the US, but still selling very well). Others just try to automatically silence a cell phone ringer. There’s one that just tries to detect who has a cell phone and single them out to be yelled at. Personally, I think this is ridiculous. If people just learned to put their stupid cell phones on vibrate, we wouldn’t have this problem.
