A woman in Scotland had her mobile phone stolen as she was going to a cinema in Edinburgh. And, erh, that’s it. But the BBC has seen fit to publish a new story about it on its online site. Either an example of Wired’s hyperlocal trend (or did I miss something there?) or that the power of cinema is such that it magnifies the importance of anything related to it. Even the theft of a mobile phone. Or would the BBC have published a story called ‘Mobile snatched from supermarket shopper’? On the bright side, it means that there was one less possible phone nuisance at Edinburgh cinemas that day. Unless the thief took the phone with him to a cinema. We may never know.
