El Maldito Celular - That @!!&&*&%^%$^ Cellphone

"Coltan: the smallest component from the remotest part of the world - and it makes everything function: phones, laptops, DVD drives, games consoles. It's like God - God in the machine."

It's estimated that over 6 million people have died in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the wars over control of Coltan and other mineral resources.  More than in any other conflict since the Second World War.
