Playstation a no-no in Swedish prisons

In the light of the recent jailbreaks in Sweden, perhaps it is understandable that a certain amount of paranoia has struck the Swedish Prison and Probation Service. Now, no prisoners are allowed to have Sony Playstations in their cells because “they can be manipulated for making wireless communication“.

In the 90s, computer games were allowed in Swedish prisons, but due to the technical development of the games, prison managers fear that they will be used to send SMS and email, with the purpose of planning an escape or to smuggle drugs etc.

I guess prison blogs are out of the question then…?
