Text Message Alerts Media of Pope's Death

As a techie, I loved this notice from Reuters and CBS News:

It took only minutes for the Vatican to spread the word of Pope John Paul II's death using text messages and emails. Fifteen minutes after the Pope was pronounced dead, the Vatican sent journalists an SMS message alerting them, "The Holy Father died this evening at 21:37 in his private apartment." TV viewers learned of the Pope's death before many of the faithful gathered below the Pope's window in St. Peter's Square.
