CNB Telecommuncations Update

Cellular telephone company Virgin Mobile is now providing a new service to its customers. To prevent unplanned telephone calls, Virgin offers customers the chance to blacklist numbers, so that the customer's telephone cannot dial that number. In other words, you can prevent yourself from drunk-dialing your old girlfriend/boyfriend.

Really. They call it the "Dial Under the Influence" service, and it blocks calls to the specified number until 6am the following morning. It was created after an online survey found 95% had made drunken calls.
