Cell Phone Jamming Technology

While not exactly the freshest news (due to some things we at BetaNews will announce shortly), the Canadian government has opened a 90-day public comment period this week on whether or not the government should legalize cell phone jamming technology. Such technology could be used in movie theaters or restaurants. The blocking could be based in the on-board software of the phone, or by physical jamming devices on the premises. This could also block important emergency calls or the like. We at BetaNews are interested in hearing you thoughts on the matter, as this could soon be coming our way.
