Using phones for phone calls? Duh, that's sooo 20th century

What will they think of next? If the question is asked about Japanese handphones the answer should be 'anything'. Today's Yomiuri Shimbun reports that the Japanese Government plans to test an earthquake warning system that broadcasts digital TV signals to mobile phones.

So now mobile phones can be used for emailing and blogging, as a lighter, a train ticket and a quake alarm. Did I hear anyone say 'insect repellent'? Sorry, that's only possible in Korea.
