Jamming blocks mobile calls, lowers IQs around US president

Saw this story in Australian IT and had to laugh - what's less well known about the jamming equipment used to block terrorist mobile phones when George Bush is in town is that it also appears to block most higher brain functions in an area the size of a football field.

At least, that's how it looks whenever I see Bush on TV.
Mobiles blocked for Bush visit
MOBILE phone calls in Sydney's CBD will be blocked by a sophisticated counter-terrorism measure to prevent bomb attacks during US President George W Bush's September APEC visit.

It is expected mobile phone calls will drop out in an area the size of a football field as the helicopter passes overhead.

The technology was first used by the US president when Mr Bush attended the APEC summit in Pusan, South Korea, in 2005.
