PS3 banned for the UK's inmates. Not banned? Gang anal sodomy

If you woke up this morning jealous of the awesome lives lead by those who have murdered and raped people in the UK, you can feel a little bit better about your lame, unconfined existence as CNet brings word that John Reid, the Home Secretary of the UK, has opted to ban Sony's PlayStation 3 from the commonwealth's prisons.

According to the article, the systems "could be used to send or receive radio signals with its built-in Wi-Fi and connectivity features", thus allowing the inmates to send coded messages to the outside, plan gang activity, or call fifteen year old kids f**-n*****s.

Why one would even have to make this decision makes my head hurt. There was actually a point at which they were considering giving their imprisoned felons the latest in home gaming technology? Sure, I suppose handing someone a system rich with technological prowess, yet lacking in worthwhile games is a kind of punishment, but couldn't they just stick to the old, proven methods, like tazering, and shanking chaps in the yard?
