Bring, bring...guess where I am?

Without question the most depressing story of the day is the BBC news report of a mountaineer who successfully made a mobile phone call from the summit of Mount Everest!! There is no escaping the damned things. They're threatened on planes any day now - yet another good reason to maintain my vow never to fly on Ryanair - and now on top of the world's tallest mountain. Aaaargh!

The Asia media connection to this other than a dyspeptic blogger in Hong Kong?

The calls were made possible when China set up a mobile base station with a line of sight to the north ridge.
