An Idea Whose Time Has Come

France May Allow Jamming of Mobile Phones: "Monday October 11, 8:30 pm ET
French Official Approves Decision to Let Some Places Install Mobile Phone Jammers

PARIS (AP) -- Watch a movie or make a mobile phone call. Soon, in France, you might not be able to do both at once.

The government's industry minister has approved a decision to let cinemas, concert halls and theaters install cell phone jammers -- on condition that emergency calls can still get through, officials said Monday.

Let's hope the U.S. will do the same!

Bill,
We definitely need this type of technology here in the US. I know some hospitals use them on their cardiac wings, however, movies, school and even church can benefit.
