Kids with cellphones

If there's one thing the FCC loves doing these days, it's regulatin' (and to a lesser extent, perpetratin'), and since this year's Super Bowl didn't give them much to work with, they're now working on "protecting children from indencency" on cellphones. The head of the FCC's wireless bureau just sent a letter to the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association urging them to take steps to prevent children from being able to access "adult content" using a cellphone, warning them that he hopes any problem can be solved "without government interference and without interference to the provision of content to adults." Of course, if the FCC does decide to mandate some sort of restrictions on what kind of content can be accessed through a cellphone (and it's not even clear to us that this is within their power), this'll put the US in good company with Saudi Arabia, one of the few countries which has already taken steps to ban cellphone porno.
