A new EU proposal entitled The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment seeks to ban all wireless transmitting and receiving devices near and in schools. That means mobile phones, wireless phones, and worst of all, Wi-Fi.
Baby Monitors are also labelled as suspect. Sorry, student mums.
Officials cite no basis for the ban, but claim that waiting for evidence could cause irreparable damage like asbestos and leaded gas before it. [via Electronista]
